A 1930's Lad

A 1930's Lad.



 A row of banners gives more character to the piece.  The color choice gives it more of a boyish feel.
This is a picture of my father taken when he was just a lad.  I felt G45's Song Bird collection was the perfect choice for this layout.  It gives that old world feel and takes you back to an era long gone by.  My grandfather was an avid gardener so I choose to add a garden patch to this piece.

Well, last night as this layout sat on the display shelf it contemplated its design and found itself lacking.  So this morning it called out to me and said, "I need something more to frame this lad.  I searched for the perfect papers to add that certain somethin', somethin' to give him more life.  He is happy now!

This just in...."A 1930's Lad" was the random winner over at SCRAP THAT for the layer it on challenge!

I am entering this layout into the new just for boys blog site "About a Boy" challenge.
