Super Cute

Hello my lovely crafty friends and as always welcome to my blog. The layout I would like to show you today is for my DT post over at 123 Challenge Blog. Sorry I don't get this up last week for you all to have a look at due to the fact I have been struggling with a head cold. Grrrr, one of the yuks we all wish we could avoid but when you drive a school bus like I do and the little ones have it there is little avoidance. But for now my DT post.

As always over at the 123 Challenge Blog you have 3 requirements to fulfill to be in the challenge and I loved this one. You need tom use the Word - Super, Colour - Burgandy and the final requirement is the Technique - Pencil.

Now for my take on the challenge and the two you but very handsome boys in the photo are of course my sons Harley and Riley. My eldest Riley has just celebrated his 13th Birthday. Wow I can't believe he is 13 already. They grow to fast and I wish it would slow down some. 

I guess it isn't to hard to see that I have used pencils. I started my layout on white cardstock and used TCW's Stencil - starburst and my journal pen. Once I has outlined the stencil I then coloured it with my boy's coloured pencils. Around the center circle I did a little journaling. 

The patterned papers are by Teresa Collins Designs

All the gorgeous clocks are from Kaisercrafts - Antique Sticker Sheet. I thought they were great since the boys had taken a step back in time at a Pioneer Settlement and put on period costumes and had to keep their little faces straight. No smiling for the photos, it was so cute and funny to watch. 

I inked the edges of the patterned papers with Distress Ink - Aged Mahogany. The frame is by Kaisercraft from the Art Of Life Acetate sheet. 

The title chippie is by Scraptopia and I have coloured it with a Kaiser Burgandy (Requirement) Fusion and then used Glossy Accents on it. My word Super (Requirement) is from Webster Letter Stickers. 

I hope you have enjoyed my layout for the challenge at 123 Challenge Blog. To join in the fun please pop on over to the blog, have a look at what the rest of the design team have been up too and get some inspiration. There are stunning designs from the rest of the DT for you to see and then add your creation to the side bar. We would love to see you.
