Change of style & proud parent.

I am trying to experiment with my scrapping style, mainly as a way of using up stash that is becoming stale in my collection or that I am struggling to use.
For this layout I used a piece of busy patterned paper which I purchased in my first ever bulk paper buy about 4 years ago!
These photos seemed ideal as they are busy and I wanted to convey the enery and movement in them, to help this I handstitched round Charlie in the main pic.
Brackets have been added to the bottom pictures as didn't want Charlie lost in the busy layout, the borders have been hand stitched after trying to cover a bodged doodle attempt.
For the title I used Thickers letters.
It has ended up being one of my favourite layouts.

PROUD PARENT MOMENT: Charlies parents evening was last night and he was given a glowing report. He has been trying really hard this year and it shows in his work. Well done Charlie keep it up XOX

I think this is my favorite of all.
Love the way you've drawn around Charlie comeing down the ramp... it makes him look so animated.
All the working looks great and modern.
Just a really Fun Layout!!
