Rein's birthday blog challenge

Rein has a birthday challenge over on her blog. I thought this was such a cute pic (thanks for the heads up Jo!) and here's what I did with it... I've had the sheet of paper forever. It's one of those you don't want to cut up but I took the plunge LOL. I did have a minor catastrophe - or so I thought when I accidentally melted the acetate and it started to curl but in actual fact I quite like the effect and carried on melting it. See the pic below. I also really like the way the family appear over the top of the baby image.
