This is my layout for the week #17 challenge over at 52sketches52weeks. This one is way out of my comfort zone, but I'm pretty happy with it. I don't usually use patterned paper for a background. I think it is distracting, but it turned out good here. I also never scrap myself. I haven't ever liked having my picture taken, but I'm getting better at it. I have lots of pictures of my mom, and I want the same for my son if anything ever happens to me. Anyway, here it is.
