This is the face of 40 inches - a Lasting Memories challenge

Happy Sunday!

Today I'm bringing you a page I created for this week's prompt over at Lasting Memories - to use at least 5 patterned papers on your layout.

I created this layout for my Disneyworld scrapbook. I'm not sure what my block is, but I cannot seem to use the typical "Disney" papers on my Animal Kingdom pages. I tend to want to use darker, travel, antique and tribal papers.

I know that these dark colors are not what is currently on trend, but in 10 years no one will know! I just like to create what comes to me from the photo & these colors and themes of papers definitely enhance my photo of my son at the Animal Kingdom. I used some white Heidi Swapp shine to brighten and interest the background cardstock.

So the story is that Heath was disappointed we had fast passes to Everest & he couldn't ride. He was right at 40 inches, and you have to be 44 to ride Everest. I wanted to take his photo by these cool doors in the area of the ride, but he was pouting, so it turned out so sad! I posted it on my Instagram as "this is the face of 40 inches," and it was a hit. Poor kid. He will be tall enough the next time we go!

I picked out the papers to match the photo, then used the turquoise in the photo layering to make it pop. I used cork as well, so I picked some cork numbers to tie to the layering. You can see all about my embellishing process for this page on my YouTube channel in a quick embellishment process video.

Please excuse that random circle that found its way onto the page during photography.

Check out my video detailing my embellishment process. The best part!

Thanks for looking!
