Hush Little Baby........

I couldn't resist scrapping this photo from the newspaper of little Jacob and his Mum, it's such a lovely pic of them both. I know she'll have a proper one from the paper in full colour anyway, so I decided to make it black and white for this page. I wanted to keep a nice clean look so decided to go for lots of white and just shades of blue and I'm rather pleased with how it's worked. I created the white embossing and the embossing onto the vellum in Craft Artist. The scalloped borders and chipboard word are both from Template Dreams kits and re-coloured.
Kay was delighted with the other two pages I did of Jacob when I gave them to her and I think she'll love this one too. She hadn't come across scrap booking like this and was blown away by the whole concept so I'm looking forward to giving her this one.
I'm entering my page into these challenges:
