Welcome once again to my blog. I have been a little slow
at bringing my latest DT post for Let's Capture Our Memories
to you on my blog. I have still been busy with mum and to cap
it off I'm in full swing with working out what secondary school
my eldest son is off to next year. :( Yes I'm a clingy mum. I'm
not looking forward to this change in our lives at all. But no more
crying on my blog for now. It's time for my layout.
This is the sketch for this months challenge. It's a beauty so don't
forget to check out my fellow DT's at the blog and while there
please join in on the challenge fun.
I hope you like my take on the challenge. I just loved this
sketch and how my LO turned out. The photo is of my eldest
son Riley and a day we had together. A special day I will
The patterned papers are by Kaiser Craft - Velvet Ensemble Collection.
The flowers I have fussy cut from the papers. I placed corrugated card
on my base paper. The chippie boarder, title and bench seat are by
Scraptopia. I colored them with Copic - Moss YG67. On the boarder
chippie I cut and stuck a piece of the corrugated card. Around the
patterned papers behind the photo I used my journal pen to do some
stitching on each. Around the photo itself I used a slick writer black-
medium pen to just make the photo stand out a little more.
Like always I love to fussy cut. It is great way of getting the optimum
from your papers and I just love cutting out the papers.
As you can see I have also fussy cut my son Riley from a second pic
and placed him on a seat and colored it green to match the seat in the
photo. It was such a beautiful day at the Ballarat Botanical Gardens.
