Fireman "Sam"?

This photo of James was taken last October in our local play park. He was insistent that he be allowed to go down the fireman's pole, per his older cousin George, with whom he is fiercly competitive! We had to hold him each time he came down but he hugged it tight & squealed with delight.
I've used the new Bella Blvd "One Fall Day" papers - I cut a 12x12 frame from the dotted paper and mounted a 10" square of white Bazzill onto that (in effect gutting the dotted paper to save waste). I then cut two circle frames - one from Kraft and one from the cloud paper, using a craft knife so that I could use the centre of the cloud paper, flipped, as a circle on the layout. These were inked with chalk inks just one shade darker than them and layered onto the white cardstock with the photo. I used my white Inkessential Gel pen and black American Crafts slick writer to create faux stitching around the kraft circle frame.The title has been created using Daiquiri vinyl thickers in chestnut and I have journalled around the outside of the frames. Finally a few clouds were cut from the cloud paper and added to the top left and bottom right corner - the second cloud in the top left corner and that in the bottom right corner was mounted onto foam pads to add height to the layout
