Indiana Gavin is 8

I'm finally getting around to working up a layout for Gavin's birthday. I had taken my camera and a friend of Jerri Ann's was super nice and took the pictures for me. There was no way I could go with the crutches but I wanted pictures. She took a ton of them and I can't thank her enough. I've always wanted to do this faded into the background look but I've worked on this most of the afternoon and its' still not to my liking but couldn't figure out a better way to do it. I love this one of him by the tree and the bridge in the background. Really gives the photo a story! His theme was Indiana Jones and he did dress the part. He was so cute and so excited at the party.
Background is by ShabbyMissJenn. Brush paint spot is by Nancie Rowe Janitz of ScrapArtist. Frame is from Something Blue Studios.
Pin It!


  1. This is a great layout and a great capture of Gavin.
    I really like it like this but maybe if the faded image was a little smaller with the edges faded into a darker background. I don't know...It's a super shot and layout as is. He really looks like Indiana, he also looks like Noah Wyle as the Librarian.

  2. Ok...explain that some more...like use a darker background? And then what? How would I fade it?

  3. Yes I like this one much better.
    Before it was hard to tell it was faded.
    Nice work.

  4. Thanks! I sent the link to Gavin and he liked it too. I need to get my butt in gear and work up some more of these. I have quite a few pictures!
