This first layout is of my very photogenic son, Kyle. I've used Designer Paper Jersery Shore and worked with those colours: Wild Wasabi and Brilliant Blue.
The chipboard letter 'u' has been covered with the same DP. Tip: First cover your entire piece of chipboard with glue - I've used the Tombow liquid glue - cover the chipboard with your selected paper and press down to adhere the glue; then cut paper fairly close to the edge of the letter. Using a piece of sandpaper, sand away the excess edges. This will make very neat and finished off edges. I've used the Life's Definitions stamp set 'unique' underneath.
These next two layouts are fairly similar in design, as they will sit side by side in the album and feature Tyson & Liam at the Quindalup Farm during the summer school holidays. The colours are similar as well: Choc Chip, Close to Cocoa, Old Olive and Ruby Red. Because all the photo's are similar in colour, it's easy to choose colours that compliment, without over doing it and taking the attention away from the pictures.
