Layout for MWL #2 Challenge

Hello, dear bloggers! Hope your weekend has been great :)

Here's a layout created for the challenge over at Made With Love.  This challenge calls for the following:

"1) Create a 12 X 12 layout.
2) Use Lace, it has to be clearly visible in your layout. Lace can be in fabric, it can be in paper pattern, transparency, lace doilies or lace paper you cut out using punches..."

"2) Use man or boy photos, I've used one but you can use more photos if you like as long as they are guy photos.
3) Journal using lyrics of a song, it can be more than one song.
4) Upload your layout to
#2 Aida's Challenge.
5) Closing date is 30th May, Monday 12pm."

You can hop on over *HERE* for all the details.

Had wanted to do a clean layout this time, going for some white space.  Got inspired by these wonderful layouts from Karen Grunberg's blog which i recently discovered.  Her layouts are mostly about her sons and i am in awe how beautiful she made the "boy" pages.  On my part, in the end, i completed my first ever "flat" layout LOL!

Here it is, titled:  When I See You Smile

Here's another view.  See? No lumps or bumps at all, LOL!  Love all the papers in this May kit from Studio Calico and like very much the paper lace stickers from My Little Yellow Bicyle included in the kit (the blue strips near the journaling).

I love how clean and simple this ended up. Have seen the other entries in this challenge and they're all awesome! With layers and embellies.  And then i see mine, and it looked so...oh, i don't know...does it scream "beginner?" LOL!  But i love that it's different from the rest and that i got to make another style of layout :)

Materials are from Studio Calico's May kit, plus alphas from October Afternoon and Kaisercraft.

Thanks for dropping by!
