Scrapbook Page - It's A Special Time

Happy Monday, everybody..

My neighbor gave me a piece of a picture several weeks ago. She asked me to make a scrapbook page for this photo. It's a photo of her son with his school mates. In the picture, I can find more than 40 students. You can see here:

I was a bit overwhelmed of what to do with this picture. When I saw the photo frame, that made me more coward to start to scrap, because the photo really fits into the frame. No more spaces on each side. Today, I really tried hard to spare some time to think about it. I asked my friends who are capable in scrapbooking, but still I have no clues to start. Then, I sat down in my craft room, facing this photo. First, I took the vintage brown paper and started the scrapbooking. When I 2/3 finished, I realized the brown color made this page is too old for this young boy's room. So I tried to find another paper which could make it "younger". Voila! I found a white paper with blue, grey and black stripes. Cool. I worked again from the scratch on this page. And this is the result: 

Sources: Hero Arts stamps, PTI tag die cut, Spellbinder circle die cut, Teresa Collin p.p., Distress Ink, EK Success border punch

I used new EK border punch on three sides using Prima grey card stock. And the rest, I used Hero Arts stamps. Look at that clock and sentiment stamp outs. They really saved me.

Since this is a picture of a group of students who joined the "architectural" assignment, so I used the stamp of a row of houses. I trimmed the houses one by one and put them above the title and also on the left side. Take a look on the details below:

I used pattern paper from a paper pad of Teresa Collin. So fabulous. I really love the blue combo in the pad. Even the yellow with white dots is also from the same paper pad.

And I put a little bird, going to the head of the boy. That's to point where the son of my neighbor is. Look at the picture below.

I forgot to take pictures from the sides, to let you see how each piece was adhered with the foam tape. In my eyes, it looks good.. Lol... Well, all of a sudden, I really want to make more pages.. It really hooked me.. (be careful, buddy..)

Okay, my friends, I hope you have a wonderful start of the week, as I do here.. See you again..
