Summer Was Made 4 Friends

Good evening everyone. I'm bringing you another LO done using a picture from last summer. I love the colors in this LO!

This is a picture of my son (in the knight costume) sitting on the couch, goofing around with some friends; a family of four kids. William's only sibling is 11 years older than he is, so he's pretty much an only child. When he gets the chance to play with so many friends at once he's always happy. We love having them over to play. 

I'm using this LO as my entry to Lasting Memories Lifes Moments challenge. I used a sketch from My Create Sketches to create this LO. 

Don't those looks like happy kids? I love it! 

I love the way the bright colors stood out on the black background. I love sequins, and I think they added just the right amount of shine to this layout. I also love using white pens to doodle on dark papers. So much happy!

The title was created with three different alphas. I decided to use the number 4 instead of the word 'for' because my son had 4 friends over. Just a little play on words. I did my journaling in white pen to make it pop as well.

Please let me know your thoughts, and take the time to follow my blog if possible. Thank you!
