Black & White

Over at the Shoe - they asked for Black & White - that's it! Not black & white plus one - just black and white! They said if you scrapped, even the photo had to be black and white. So - here it is! Mostly white - the only black comes from the photo.

I am very pleased with this layout!! That is my son when he was about 8 months old.

I also decided to do a card. I assure you the sentiment is straight, but no matter how I photographed it, it looked crooked, so here it is....

I just have to say that it's VERY UNFAIR to take COLOR away!! But I am really loving that big black & white bow!

However, I did get this into more than just the Shoe's Challenge! LOL Over at the Creative Card Crew, they asked for a shape. So by way of my Nestibility dies, I have a lovely shaped card!

And last but certainly not least, 365 Cards said to Make It Match! - they asked for a matching envelope. Not sure how well this would hold up if I had to mail it, as it is ribbon, does match!

There's more coming...
