Miss This Boy - CMS #50

Oh how I loved these colors at Color Me Scrappy!

They seemed very soothing, but I didn't have a picture in mind when I started designing this page.  Has anyone ever worked through their design first and then found a picture later?  That's what I did with this page.

I started pulling colors together first.  The twist this time around was to use texture.  I knew that I had a piece of rusty metal left somewhere, so I started the search...  I found it and knew that it belonged on this page.  I also added the burlap and the wood fence.

It was then time to find a picture.
This little boy was a neighbor kid that lived down the street when we lived in KY.  He was Ethan best friend.  They spent a lot of time together and when we moved, it was quite sad.

Thanks for stopping by!
