A Challenge And A Birthday

Our step Grandson Dylan turned 11 last week. It has been a while since I have done a page for him and this photo of his Dad and the newspaper clipping has been sitting around since 2009..Soo I decided to combine the birthday and
Scottie Crafts March challenge.
2 sheets pattern paper
Some masking or stencilling
2 items of prima
Hidden Journalling tag

I was reluctant to use the prima branch at first... Like Arrrhh dont really want to part with it. Some of these bits are too beautiful to use let alone give away. But I have sucked it up and made one little fella really happy, the look in his eyes made it all worth while. I love how I managed to get the clipping sorted with a leaf attached so no one really knows its behind the photo. The compass masks looks great with the prima centres added I thought..

I am Really happy with this layout and have been busting to share.
