not so perfect photos

We've all got them & to be honest what do we do with them...they don't look so good in the ordinary photo album, but scrap them & they become great pieces that we look back on with great memories. Here's my not so perfect photos scrapped for Stamp A Memorys latest challenge.
This is my photo, I haven't altered it at all before scrapping it,

I have used pumpkin pie & tempting turquoise c/s & rolled it with Nursery Letters jumbo wheel & Versamark to create my own patterned paper. For the lettering I have used Big Deal alpha stamped in basic black & covered in crystal effects. I have followed a sketch from 'PageMaps' & used the colours & stripes in Will's t-shirt for inspiration - as he is in a clothes dryer there's not much else going on in the background!! Yes I will admit to running to get the camera when Will climbed into the dryer mumbling something about driving a car...what else does a scrapbooking mum do!!! Does that count for not so perfect photos or just not so perfect parenting???
