My Mr Frog Man - Purple Pumpkin

So it has been quite a while but finally I bring you my second installment from the 'My Mr Man' series. You can find the first one here.
I thought this froggie suit was super cute and snapped a photo after I dressed him. Lucky too because it was the only time he got to wear it =( he had out grown it just two days latter!

My Mr Frog Man

I have used completely and only Bella Blvd and Purple Pumpkin for this layout.
I never previously liked sticking to manufacturers, thought it too restricting, but as my ever growing stash gets bigger the task of finding the exact right paper/embellishment has become almost daunting. I'm now starting to prefer it.
The page design came from the current sketch challenge over at Purple Pumpkin

I have used a portrait photo instead of landscape but I think otherwise stuck to it fairly well. Line of stars across the top,embellishment bottom right of photo, title below and partly on the photo and journalling under the title.

This is one of the cutest lil froggies (except Jayce of course) and was my main reason for choosing Bella Blvd for this layout. I tried to make it look as though the frog is sitting on a PP button and stuck the front feet to the button, the back feet to the paper direct and placed foam squares behind the head to keep it lifted.

A couple of close-ups of other PP goodies which I have placed in circles of corresponding colours.

And finally my journalling. I'm still not a big fan of my own hand writing but am too lazy to find an alternative.

Thanks for stopping by. Hopefully more to come soon...
XoXoX Nicole.
