This design is based on the Swirlydoos September Sketch and I used the Sun Kissed Paper Collection from Heartfelt Creations. The colors were perfect for this sweet picture of my son and I when he was just 2 months old!

Here's the sketch:

and here are some close ups of the layout:

I made the flowers with the new Arianna Blooms PreCut Set and it's coordinating die. This was my first time working with them and I have to say that I found a new favorite flower from Heartfelt Creations! You can do so much with them! Of course, I distressed them and made them vintage for my layout.

The little sign on the paper was perfect to add my title with the tiny BoBunny alphas. A few more distressed blooms and a butterfly finish this area.

I used quite a few layers of papers (all from the same collection minus the black and white stripe paper) for this layout. I wanted a masculine but shabby layout to reflect both my son and I. I added some journaling right below the pictures to remember this day in which my son was extra snugly.

Here's one last look at the layout!

Here are the Heartfelt Creations products that I used on my layout:
