Age Of Innocence

I honestly think I could scrap every single picture in my niece's photo shoot!

I edited this one slightly to make it more of a close up than the original and made it black and white. I think the color change works very well with the blue and black combination in the layout.

The background piece is from Heidi Swapp. These come in white and you can color them with ink in a variety of colors to make a really unique piece.
The other papers are plain solid card stock and a swiss dot piece for the circle.

I used a piece of lace ribbon tied in sections to make a really pretty bottom border.

The swirls are hand drawn and were done with a white Gelly Roll pen.

As I've mentioned before, editing programs are the greatest for changing the color of a photo, size and overall appearance. Try out Picnik if you are looking for an editing program that offers many options! It's the one I use and I highly recommend it!

Thanks for the visit!
