So I've been wanting to create a layout using pictures printed in Sepia. For my son's First Holy Communion, I took some great pictures of him during the ceremony. I did have studio pictures done for him but these are more natural.

For me to create layouts of my son is a bit challenging because I am limited as to what embellishments I can use. After brainstorming and pulling out a few things, this is what I came up with.

Being on the Sepia kick, I also decided to do a tag using the same colors.

Supplies for the layout as well as the tag: Lindy's Stamp Gang Moon Shadow Mist in Golden Doubloons and Crow's Nest Copper (I switched out the spray top for the short hair dauber); Title "My First Communion" is from The Cutting Cafe; Prima Cherry Blossom Vine; Swarovski crystals; Pazzles machine from HALLMARK SCRAPBOOK; burlap fabric; Offray burlap ribbon; Tim Holtz Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Ink; Papertrey Ink card stock; Papertrey Ink Twine; Prima Say It In Crystals; Prima Leaves; Music Note Stamp from Red Lead Paper Works; Elizabeth Bell Stamp from SCACD; Flower Soft; Copic Markers; Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Embossing Powder.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Hugs, T
