Grandma's Favorite Photo

When I saw this paper line by Echo Park called For the Record, I absolutely fell in love with it!  I made a pact with myself that if I were to buy it that I would use it right away, not file it away in my absolutely love it and don't want to use it pile.  I found this old photo of me from when I was a child.  It was my Grandma's favorite photo of me and I must admit I love it too in spite of the 19070's style jumper I was wearing!  Over the years the little fishing boy has changed colors and since my Grandma's passing I do not know where he ended up.  I sure wish I had thought to ask for him when my Grandpa was going through things but alas I did not.  I sure hope that where ever he went, there is another little girl telling him secrets!

The "remember this" strip was actually cut from the border sheet but I didn't want it to lay flat so I randomly placed some pop dots under it to give it a wavy appearance.

I wanted the year to have some dimension.  I used the stickers from the collections sticker sheet and then covered them with 2 coats of glossy accents (allow drying in between).  Now they look like they are under glass!  I also snuck a little glossy accents onto the birds eye!  Sure hope you enjoyed this layout.  Both the layout and the memories make me smile!
