Deer and Fawn September challenge

This month at Deer and Fawn designs, the challenge is to use orange in a layout. Orange is my new favourite colour, I love it, it's so bright and cheery.
I had this photo of my nephew Lachlan, taken nearly 4 years ago at Christmas, and used it for this challenge. He was happily eating his Christmas lunch, I was an interrupting aunty and asked him for his photo, he was obliging  - love this little guy.
For my layout, I was inspired by a sketch designed by Ana Castro, I love her designs, they are awesome. I chose Websters Pages patterned paper, as well as Basic Grey for the orange. I spattered some orange paint onto the background. I backed the photo with Project Life journaling cards, added washi tape. I embellished with Charms Creations starsand mini tab, and Scrap Fx chipboard which I embossed with Lindy's stamp gang embossing powders to make them look a little rusty. I also added the button from Birdies embellies and resin stars from Cocoa Vanilla.
I'm just a little pleased with this layout.
Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
