I realised the other day that I have a lot of layouts, but have been lacking on the blog posts. So I have decided to try and catch up and do some sharing.
Today I want to share with you layout I made with a Let's Scrap sketch from August 2013.
Various patterned papers from my stash
Bling and buttons from my stash
Kaisercraft Boy rub on
Making memories letters
October Afternoon stickers
I loved these pictures of Jonathan, they were taken on a Saturday afternoon after we all went grocery shopping. The special thing about these pictures is that was the day be bought him his first rugby ball! A very proud moment in every dad's life if they have a son! I captured these pictures in the kitchen while he was trying to play with the ball and at the same time crawl towards me.
I printed the pictures almost immediately after taking them, as I was extremely keen to make a fun layout. But I battled for days to get the right paper. Finally I found these old papers at the bottom of my paper rack. The layout came together quickly (once I had the paper), then it was time for embellishments - this took another few days. Due to the fact that the papers were so busy and I did not want to distract from the photos, I really battled to find something that worked for me.
I made some flags with washi tape, which I adhered with some staples and added some buttons and bling. I also painted chipboard cogs black and added some Kaisercraft rubons.
The title I did with bits and pieces of left-over letters I had in my stash. Lastly I added some stickers from an old October Afternoon range, some buttons and bling.
