Pittsburgh Bound

Grandchildren provide lots of fun photos to create a scrapbook of photos, memories, and scrappin' techniques.  For this layout I was inspired by Sketch 464 from Scrapbook Challenges - an arrangement that's pleasing to the eye.  For a slightly different effect, I turned the layout on its side.
This is the last page of my Grandson's second scrapbook . . . and will be Pittsburgh bound tomorrow morning.  We don't have much contact with our grandson - parents too busy to Skype with last Christmas being the last time we visited online.  We've been able to visit Pittsburgh only twice - when he was born and when he turned one in May.  So he doesn't know us at all.  I wanted to at least provide an image that maybe he will at least be able to put faces to the names Grandpa and Grandma.

I also recently purchased the Fuse Tool and have been trying to find time to use it in a layout.  So we video taped a special message for Adrian and hid it beneath the third photo, as shown in this next close up.  This is fast and easy, once you get the hang of it!  The real question is will it withstand the tiny hands of a one-year-old boy.  
The message contains a code to STKR.IT.  When scanned, he will see this video of us blowing kisses to him.  I
