Just for Fun - Anything goes

Sorry Im a bit late with this one, where does the time go to?

This is for this weeks Just for Fun which is anything goes.
Ive had these photos of myself as a baby to work with for ages , and not really known what the best thing to do with them was. Ive used a few on pages and atcs as they are tiny .
They were actually produced as proofs from a photo shoot when i was a baby from which my parents were supposed to choose an enlargement.
Its funny looking at all the facial expressions as obviously someone was trying to keep me entertained for the photographer.

It was my intention to do something with them for the challenge a couple of weeks ago as they are the size of inchies, however i couldnt quite get my head around how to display them on the page.

They have been lying on my table just getting spread all over and have ended up on the floor more times than i care to say.

As I was looking in one of the paper drawers the other day for the right shade of 12 x 12 for something totally different I came across this 12 x 12 which has coloured squares all over it, just a bit bigger than an inchie.

Its a Steffi Paper called Tutti Frutti. I instantly thought of all these little prints when i saw it. I was talking to my Mum yesterday about the pictures but that I couldnt decide which amazing shape I should make, without realising what i was doing I made a 'J' the more I looked at it the more I liked it and so its stayed.

Theres been no skill involved in making the page it literally fell together by accident. However its taken care of what to do with all these little images thats for sure.

Thanks for stopping by my blog its much appriciated.
