Hello Selfie - WW1

I have finally completed a piece of scrappery after what is my usual start of the month lull. 
I am hoping to keep at it and create a large number of pages this month. Also my usual but it will happen this time... I hope...
Anyway. First up is a layout feature a new favourite photo of Jayce and myself.

This page was created along with the WW1 November challenge which is 'freesia' or yellow.

I created the background using paint swatch samples of varying yellows collected from Bunnings. Even managed to find ones with appropriate colour names which were underlined/circled before stitching them onto white cardstock.

I matted the photo with both black and white cardstock to make it pop. Behind that I chopped up two sentiments from a Elle's Studio Cameron paper and layered them vertically with a few punched star boarder bits.

Isn't that the cutest little square! The arrow points to Jayce btw.
I scattered a few of the punched stars around for some added interest.

When stitching the colour swatches, one was missed to create a pocket for the tag which pulls out and has the journalling on it.
I had planned on the 'a favorite photo of Jayce & Mummy' to be the title but felt it left a void in the middle of the polaroid frames, so added the another title too.

 Back to share again. Soon.
