A Note from Francine

These photos of my son Kieran at one week old napping in his hammock are some of my favourites (ok, who am I kidding? All photos of him are my current favourites!) I am not one to go for “blue for boys and pink for girls” but this colour does seem to suit him! I immediately thought of this nursery rhyme!

With little scrap time right now I kept this page extremely simple with the focus on the three photos. Printing them with a white border saves on having to mat them individually or as a group. Once I arranged the photos the way I liked, it was easy to choose the stickers and other embellishments. And note that none of my blues match exactly, but that’s ok!
