LOC Just Hanging Out

This Layout is of my DS and I just love these photos of him - they show him perfectly, he often sits 'pondering' quietly 'mulling' over life and there is the other side of him that just loves to laugh, when he find something funny he has us all laughing.  Time goes by so fast and he is quickly becoming a young man...he melts my heart!

These photos were taken by my DH at a lovely historic Homestead just near us, I love the rustic look of them and used this fabulous SU DP which goes so well with it.  I also used my Layers of Color images -  I am loving how versitile they are, there are four sets used on this Layout, the first is Architectual Blocks which I made those glossy tiles from, I cut them out, chalked them and then used Dimensional Magic to give them that gloss.

The next set is  Regal Wings, which I have cut out and popped the ends up with dimensionals, chalking and lightly adding Kindy Glitz - I love the effect this has.  The heart is from Fleur Hearts, it has also been chalked and popped up with dimensionals...instead of Kindy Glitz I used a Gold Glitter Pen to add highlights.  The medallion is from the Flower Child set, this has been sponged around the edges and popped up on dimensions chalked with blue chalks, then a brad added.

I have also paper peireced around the circle on the lower left corner, I love the effect paper piercing can have, it can add so much without cluttering!  The hinges are Tim Holtz Grungeboard which has been sponged with Distressing Ink - Walnut Stain - and has tarnished gold brads added.  The sentiments are Rub Ons from Kaiser.

Thank you for stopping by and for your encouraging comments - you know I love seeing that you have called in - it makes my day!!  God bless you!


  1. What a wonderful page - and you have captured both sides of your son so delightfully - love your lay out and the way you have used the stamps to create accessories for it, which add to the overall effect and neither clutter nor distract from the photos.


  2. A wonderful layout Linda! Your Son is precious! I know there are mixed feelings as they grow into adults... but it's also such a blessing to be able to see what God is doing in their lives! What wonderful photos of your son!

  3. Hi Linda,

    How nice to meet another 'Lovely Linda'. My other Lovely Linda is over at Lilly Cottage so now I know 2 LL's. I hope I don't get you mixed up [giggle], although I bet both of you are just that - 'Lovely'.
