as soon as i saw the "hello world" badge, i knew i wanted to use it on a page with these photos. what better sentiment for a photo of ben leaving his mark on the shore of lake michigan?
every now and then you have to go big for a background - and since i'm in love with this patterned paper, i decided to go for it. the patterned vellum worked perfectly to create a mat for my photos and title. i added a few bits of patterned paper and embellishments here and there to the background, but kept this page fairly simple.
