Hey Good Looking!

Love this photo of Alex taken on his 10th birthday.....watch out girls!!!!!!


I printed the photo 8x6 on canvas but not too sure if I like it!!  It has come out softer but it is probably because I usually use glossy photos!!

I used the sketch- 132 at Sketches in Thyme.....

 

The challenge closes at the end of the month so lots of time to scrap!!

I am also entering this at The Studio Challenges who required a larger photo than 6x4.  As I usually use 6x4 this was definitely out of my comfort zone!!!

You have until 9th November to scrap larger than 4x6...so go for it!!!

Thanks for visiting!!
