This time I've scrapped my nephew, and what fun it was to do a boy-layout! When I saw the case file I instently thought about him. He's the little scientist in the family. He's always been reading maps, encyclopedia, sciencebooks. But lately (he's 9 now) he's enjoying novels aswell. So I was really inspired by the picture in the case file and created the background from bookpages.

In this photo he looks so sweet and innocent, and he is that to, bur he is the one I know with the most energy! So I wrote my journaling about that.

As evidence:

As testimony:

I also got cought up with the orange color in the case picture, and had to have it even tough it isn't in the color palette. But 10 % is allowed I think?;-)

Oh wow!!!! This is a fantastic page. You did a great job with the printables and the background made from the layered book pages is fabulous! And yes, your use of the orange is perfectly fine. :)

Oh I just love this page. Something about it is so unique and unusual! I think it's all the stacked and layered elements in addition to that fantastic photo!
