Hello Friends! Jillibean Soup is sharing one of my layouts today and I thought I'd share it here as well, along with some more details. :)
My eldest boy LOVES science. Absolutely LOVES it! *grin* Even his teacher has recognised Liam's need to have a science based learning curriculum in the classroom! (Got to love a teacher who goes out of his way to encourage students to learn.) And for this reason I thought I'd document his greatest love at the age of 10.

I wanted to create a science experiment "feeling" to this page with plenty of bubbles rising, arrows showing different directions and question marks hidden among the chaos. Throw in a speech bubble because he is such a chatterbox and I've pretty much summed him up! Plenty of layers and dimension.
My journaling has been typed up and hidden beneath the photo. It pulls out on the teal tab just below the "notes" sticker.
On the opposite side, I've used the notebook paper from the Chilled Cucumber collection but punched holes in it to make it appear as though I've torn it straight from a journal pad. Such a simple effect and I love the texture it adds to my page.
I'm so glad I've now got this documented. He wants to be a geologist when he grows up. And so far that hasn't changed for quite some time (give or take six months!! *grin*). Maybe next year his interests will go off in a new direction altogether (please not motorbikes. please not motorbikes!!) LOL. But for now, I love that he loves science. Thanks for visiting..x
