This is one of those photos that I have been hoarding for awhile, waiting for the perfect paper collection to come along. Guess what? It finally did! Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s Boys Rule collection has blues and browns that coordinate beautifully with this photo and Cheeky Studio’s Easter ephemera made embellishing it a breeze!
I love that I was able to incorporate these stunning feathers and leaves into a layout of my son, Joseph, when he was a little past toddlerhood. This collection is often used for Easter and baby boy layouts, but in this picture, he’s four! Definitely not a baby anymore!
I really thought these softer embellishments spoke to how soft his fleece blanket was and how much it comforted him for so many years! The chipboard title is from the Boys Rule collection as well and the mini Thickers are called Happy Life. I splattered with Citron Heidi Swapp Color shine and added punched gold stars throughout.
Overall, I think this was the perfect was to showcase this photo of my son and his beloved blankie. Truly his “best friend” for a long time!
