My First Layout of My NEW Baby Grandson
"This Is Me"
Sketchabilities September Challenge

Hi there, thanks for stopping by. Today I have my very first layout
I have scrapped of my gorgeous NEW baby Grandson Henry.
He was only born last week & we are all over the moon.
I thought this sketch from the current challenge over at the 
Sketchabilities blog would be perfect so I have based my layout on it.
Great sketch, thanks Sketchabilities.

I loved this Kaisercraft paper & just had to fussy cut all those little elephants .

 As always I have used lots of my favourite 2Crafty Chipboard too including..
"All About Me" - title
Mini Jig Saw Pieces
Skeleton Leaves
Skeleton Clock Face


Well thats all for today.
I hoped you liked my layout.
Until next time.

Part Two of My September DT Reveal For
2Crafty Chipboard
"Sweet Cheeks"

Hi there paper friends, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have part two of my Spetember DT reveal for
 I have done this layout using these very old pics
of my youngest son, who is now thirty !!! Where has the time gone?
He was the cutest little boy says one very biased Mother !!

2Crafty Chipboard used...
Sweet Cheeks - title
Chain Circle Frames
Chain Lengths
Mini Cameras
Mini Hot Air Balloons
Mini Fast Forward Arrows

 The title "Sweet Cheeks", the "Hot Air Balloon" & the "Fast Forward Arrows"
were all treated with a coat of gesso followed by some simple mustard
coloured acrylic paint. Too easy. 

  The "Chain Lengths" & "Chain Circle Frames" were firstly wiped 
over with some brown ink before being heat embossed with some vintage photo 
Distress Embossing powder. When cool I then wiped them over with some 
Viva InkaGold paste in both gold & copper to achieve a rusty metal look.

I sponged a little brown ink on the  "Mini Camera" to colour it up to match.

  Well thats all for today. I hope to see you back here again soon.
Until next time.

Such a beautiful  moodboard with so many things to inspire you.

Firstly I have have gone with the colours of the moodboard because
 they matched this photo perfectly.
Lots of beautiful Prima flowers to help set the scene.

I was inspired to create some little tags to suit my photo like the tag on the moodboard.
Lots of fussy cutting as well as some nice background treatments & a scattering of pearls.

I have used both script & music notes paper, also inspired by the moodboard.

I have also tied string around my photo like the box in the moodboard.
