NSD Part 2

Hello again! I am back with another NSD challenge project. I don't know about you, but today has been a lot of fun for me! Hopefully you all have had a chance to participate in some fun challenges and contests! For this layout, I was doing challenge # 2 at Big Picture Classes which was to take a photo from a few years ago, and a recent photo to compare/contrast. I chose a baby picture of my cute nephew Sevyn and another photo taken of him recently. I am also doing another Frosted Designs challenge which was a recipe: a hand made embellishment, yellow, stripes or polka dots, at least 3 buttons, twine and a punch (use at least 4 of 6). I used all 6! Also the Echo Park blog had a fun challenge to scraplift their design team. One of them made these adorable paper clip embellies. I am definitely going to have to add those into my rotation! Anyway, I will stop talking now and show you my layout:

All the paper is from the new Echo Park hello summer line. So fun and bright and colorful.
Here is the fun embellishment I made. I just took some regular paper clips and added a sticker to one and a banner flag (with sticker) to the other one,
The banner is fussy cut from one of the patterned papers in the line. I added some twine.
I used the fun bright letter stickers from the collection for my title.
And LASTLY. I recently got my paws on the new Smash label maker. Oh boy. I am in love. You will be seeing MUCH more of this one! Now they just need to come up with some more fun colors of the tape. Can't wait!!
Thanks for stopping by to see my project! I am headed off the celebrate that *other* holiday that is going on today (wink!). Hopefully I can get some more crafting time in tomorrow!!
