baptism scrapbook page

Hey there, hope you're enjoying the weekend. Seems like it's COLD almost everywhere in the U.S. right now, yes even here in Florida!

I'm making good use of my "indoor" time since it's chilly outside. Our friends' son will be baptized tomorrow, so I whipped-up a scrapbook page for them in celebration of the big occasion:
I went with a palette of aqua, light olive green, and chocolate brown. Love that color combo! And I thought it was masculine while avoiding the predictable shades of blue. Of interest to my sb'ing pals ... I stamped the word "baptism" with Technique Tuesday's Piccadilly alphabet (extra large). I thought it was a nice font choice for this layout.

Here are a few close-ups of the details:
I used Martha Stewart's arch lattice edge punch on the photo mats (love Martha's punches!):

Hope they like it!
