Creating with Scrapmatts & Remembering when a Special Little Man came into the World!

Evening All :)

Popping in to share this SPECIAL layout I created, capturing a very 
special time in my baby brother's life....
When he became a Father 
(Five years ago!  That has gone way too quick!)

Now the photo isn't the sharpest or clearest....but I simply 
I have scrapped it before....but very differently.  
Oliver was 1 day old in this photo...snuggled into his Daddy.
I have used the new release
[Isn't it just stunning!]
I had to jump in & use it asap!

I have also used a C/W Stencils in my background.

Hope you all have an amazing weekend & maybe even get a little 
scrapping done?

Thanks for stopping in
