The background paper is a blue and green dot vellum over a green patterned paper. I like the pictures to have some progression in a layout because it seems to tell a better story. Here, Christian was giggling about getting into the water, but eventually did and even trusted his dad to float on his back. I loved using the "tape" on the pictures - great product! The letters are stenciled and cut (when I had time to do that type of thing!). They are outlined and layered over blue gingham ribbon so they pop a little more. My favorite part of this layout is Christian's expression. I miss that baby - he is 11 tomorrow (Monday).
Happy birthday baby boy.
