Dad & Me | 3 Birds Studio

Here's a new layout that was up on the 3 Birds Studio blog. It's another heritage layout, but this time it's my dad and me in the photo, way back in 1970.
Sometimes when I'm scrapping an old photo I'll do a bit of color correction if the photo has faded or the color has changed, but with this one I embraced that 70's look and matched my embellishments to the green-ish tint of the picture.

The papers and embellishments are all from the Graceful Season collection by 3 Birds Studio and is available exclusively on hsn.com. 
I also added a few rows of "messy stitching" around the outer frame design. I like the look of the messy stitching, but it does cross my mind once in awhile that someday the grand kids might wonder if grandma really could sew a straight line or not ;)
Well, the weekend is almost here, it's time to relax and enjoy!

I love this!!! That blue makes the photo pop so great! I would not have thought to do that color. Tiffany and I are channeling you now when we scrapbook. :)
