This is a layout of my great nephew Gage after finishing a cupcake! Isn't he a cutie! It's a simple layout but I really like how it turned out!

I posted both copies of the layout because I wanted to see side by side..lol...or up and down...the difference a couple little things I did made to the layout! When I did the layout the first time I liked it...but felt it was missing something. A couple days later I had a chance to watch Monique's video on some techniques she always uses. I tried a couple of them and think it really made a difference! It's still a simple layout but with a little pop now! I had already inked on the first copy but added the black mats and I did a little white pen work! I can see I reallyyyy need to work on my inking but I will just have to keep working on that one! I still need to work on my white pen work also but for my first try I'm pretty pleased! thanks Monique for the tips!

Hope you like layouts! And if you are interested in the video Monique did here is the link!
