The basic idea for the layout is fairly simple. I am a big fan of "clean" design. I like to let the paper do the work for me, so to speak. Here I went for bright patterned paper, but I chose retro colors. I thought it compliments the photo. I have to congratulate myself for buying him those glasses, they are a (n amateur...) photographer's dream.
The background paper is My Mind's Eye (B side, of course) from the Good Day Sunshine collection. I trimmed it and matted it on a cream colored card stock. The smaller ones are from the Brooklyn Flea kit from Studio Calico, and so are the buttons. The rest of the PP is scraps. Of course I misted the page with some White Mister Huey's ink... I used a cute label sticker from October Afternoon Boarding Pass collection, and ran it through my printer.
