Normally the peonies would have been pummelled into nothingness by Spring rain a long time ago--I guess that's a sort of upside to drought. Here I used four photos in a template layout, one in the template frame provided and the others blended into Fotoblendz, a template paint layer, a template transfer, and a transfer I dragged in from the Artplay Palette. After getting all that to play together nicely, I added a smidge of journaling, a wood word from the Word Art set and a typed title, and also dragged in a transfer from the Artplay Palette to disguise an unfortunate crop at the top of my grandson's head (he was in his carseat). I finished up with a button and ribbon and added a background paper to finish up.

How adorable is this, what a great very sweet photos, he grows so fast. This must a very beautiful place there and dad is of course very proud. Everything you did Laura is really great, I love also the big white flower!
Ellie and the peonies are both blooming! Makes me miss baby Oz :) I like this focal, collage and detailed photo approach, tells a great story!
Beautiful and serene! He s growing! He will be playing in the yard while you chase! The chairs will not get much use! It will be fun!
All of this is magic. Love how you addressed the unfortunate crop. It looks very organic and he is adorable.
i waver back and forth which photo i find more beautiful, the one of the peony or the one of ellioth. ok, the flower is very beautiful, but elioth's smile is even more beautiful, so mischievous.
All layered together wonderfully. Love the placement of the peony to hold that middle section together.
