KWerner Color Challenge #39

Amazingly my son Joe, let me take a silly picture of him. I came home from work and I was sitting at my computer when he walked in the door looking like this. He claimed that he and his friends were going to start a "Geek Squad!" I was thinking okay...uh...I guess if that's what you want to do...fine with me! I asked him if I could take a picture and of course he posed making these silly faces :) I was just happy to be taking pictures of him, if you have kids who are teens, the occasions when they want to pose for you become fewer and far between. At least it has been that way for me! Anyway, I thought this picture was perfect to use for Kristina's color challenge. The cherries on the background are from the Just Jawing (Stampin' Up) set and so is the You Rock stamp! I wanted a framed border. I love this color combination but I don't know if I succeeded in getting the layout the way I wanted it. I am one of those people that puts a page together and once it's done...it's done...I don't play with it anymore! I know the 11 x 8 1/2 layout is not very popular but I always wanted to try it out. So I am filling a scrapbook with this size and at the same time my stamp club is completing one too! Let me know what you think!

Stephanie.. How fun! Crazy how they won't let you take pictures once our sons reach a certain age! Glad you were able to snap one.. and that he loved his Mom enough to let her have such a warm and fun memory!
