My Little Paleontologist

My project today is a scrapbook layout for the MDS Monday Challenge.  This was a fun layout so I wanted to use some fun pictures.

The challenge was to use a frame on top of one photo to highlight the subject of the picture.  They also offered this great two page spread as inspiration.

My first page shows my son "mining" for precious stones.  He thought it was cool to find things in the dirt (and play with water).  I like the photo layered with the DSP backgrounds. 

They also had some dinosaur figures that he fell in love with, since he loves dinosaurs (he is a boy!).  He took pictures with every size and particularly liked the biggest one.  The offset photos give this page some whimsy that fits that subject matter.

Supplies: MDS, White Stitching, Meant To Be Background Stamp, Day in the Life Embellishments, Day in the Life DSP, Petite Pennant Punch, Get It Done Punch, Hexagon Punch
