Another Layout for Graphic 45

Hello everyone
One of my layouts from CHA is on Graphic 45's Blog. It is one I did on the two most important men in my life.
 I love the new “Olde Curiosity Shoppe” papers. This is a layout I did on my husband and son. They are on a ride at Water World (QLD) I started with two cardstocks, the first one was black with an aqua blue cardstock on top. I then put a piece of “Exquisite Motif” which is one of my favourite prints. I used “Olde Curiosity Shoppe" print for the diamond frame, which I double matted in black and terra cotta. Then I layered it on top of “Exquisite Motif”. I place another piece of “Exquisite Motif on top of the “Old Curiosity Shoppe" paper (I used the reverse side). This gave me a wonderful foundation on which to do my layout. I double matted my photo and added it to the page. I added some brads in the corners. I love adding layers to my work so I added a piece of ”Optical Oddities” over lapping the photo. A piece of “When Pigs Fly” for the title and “Optical Oddities” for the stripes. I used a penny farthing bike backed with a piece of “Counting Down” I used a staples brad from Graphic 45 to attach it to the page . The chipboard title, boarder, flourish, bike and clock is all from Imaginarium Designs. I love all the strong colours in the layout. Even though the prints look floral, the page is still masculine and suits my boys perfectly.
I am not a ride kinda Girl, so when the boy's told me that the pirate ship ride was ok, I was a bit skeptical as I don't even like the ferris wheel! I was persuaded to get on the ride with the condition that the boys would sit in front of me and face me, so I could get a photo. I will never get on that ride again. I took the photo only a couple of seconds into it. By the time the ride really got going, I had my eyes tightly shut and hanging on for grim death, with my bottom leaving the seat at the top of the ride. Never - Never again, not even for a million photos.
