Flourishies & Swirls - SWIDIC Challenge #4

This fortnights challenge with Scrapping with I did it Creations is with the prompt "Flourishes & Swirls"Looking through my photos I came across a picture of me putting my curly hair over Kai's bald head (he has a lovely head of hair now, but it was very wispy when he was small). I decided this photo was perfect with the theme.

The photo reminded me of old vintage photos of curly haired babies posing so I decided to go for an almost vintage look and made it slightly sepia (the quality on the photo wasnt great in the first place as it was done with a mobile phone and was far to over exposed).

The DT were given some digital papers to use, Cafe Creme from the I did it Creations Shop , all in creams and browns, perfect for the layout. I printed out onto textured card to give it extra depth.

I wrote the journaling on a sticker which I had inked the edges of, it reads
"Kai had very little hair when he was small so I placed my hair over his head to see what he'd look with spiral curls like mine, 27th Oct 07"

I tried to mimic old scrapbooks with my layout of the photo & journalling. To pull it all in I added peels off flourishes to create corners and coloured in sticker letters to match the colours.

Our sponsor this fortnight is Pear Tree Designs, who does the most beautiful digital stamp images. Go check them out, and when your done hows about making a Scrapbook layout for our challenge. If you need some inspiration pop over to Scrapping With I Did it Creations to see what the rest of the Design Team came up with.
