Best Buddies

Hello crafty friends and welcome to my blog. Today I would like to show you a layout i have created for my DT post over at Le's Capture our Memories. As always you have a wonderful sketch for the challenge and I'm sure if you hop on over to the blog, see what the rest of the design team have created you will be inspired to join in the fun with us. Now for the sketch. 

This is my take on the sketch.

Of course these are my two very handsome boys but the photo was taken a few years back now as this Saturday 22nd August my eldest son Riley becomes a teenager. Yes the big 13. The patterned papers I chose for this layout are by My Mind's Eye and October Afternoon.

I mounted my photo on the patterned paper and them placed it on some corrugated cardboard that I inked with Distress Ink - Spiced marmalade. The circles are a memory Box Die - Loopy Rings

I inked the edges of my patterned papers with Distress Ink - Black Soot. My Best Buddies chippie Title is by Memory Maze and the Hearts are Scrapmatts. Both have been coloured with a Distress Marker - Iced Spruce. 

I don't normally hand journal on my layouts because I never really like my handwriting. I give it a go this time though. The chevrons are from a Kaisercraft collectibles packet. 

I hope you have enjoyed calling by again and that I have been able to inspire you a little. Please call over to the Let's Capture Our Memories blog and join in the fun with this sketch.
Happy crafting and may your mojo flow.
