The photo is of my son Ben and his fiancé Astrid on the beach in San Francisco. Ben is much on my mind since he is experiencing so many exciting changes in his life right now, including graduating with his PhD this coming May, then getting married a week later and he was just hired as an Assistant Professor at the University of Missouri. It is all enough to make the mama very proud!
I always trace die-cut shapes onto cardstock and cut them out to use later as patterns, which is how I made the background for this layout. I then layered it on teal cardstock and cut around the edge with scallop edging scissors adding the white dots with a Signo gel pen to give it a more finished look.
