My, my, my.. what a sweet and touching page! Love that you repeated the use of the same photo with different treatment, especially the blended black and white one. Even the giraffe looked so touched standing over there Great paper clustering too.
I love this and how the blended photo matches the colours in the background. Also love how you have kept the colour in the other two photos and then matches some of the orange elements to the little guys shirt. I love the combination of bright and neutral colours. Lovely lovely layering and clustering. Love this layout so much I am nominating you for baker's best.
