This is a page I did for my guy when he was about 2 (my little dude will be 11 in April). I like doing pages like this - a single subject without an event. Sometimes these little opportunities come along. Christian just found some sunglasses and beads and he just did his thing.
The page was pretty simple because I wanted to keep the focus on the subject and not a bunch of fancy stuff. I used some paper letters and glued each one on the page.
I love mats. I have a hard time doing a layout without them, mostly because I cut my pictures in squares or rectangles. These mats were plain blue on green (to match the background paper).
I also used brads to attach the pictures (can you tell I also like brads?)
Sorry for the fuzzy pictures. I miss those chubby cheeks and how serious he was about everything. I had (have) the cutest boy!
