Time Flies – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone! I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog with a layout of my youngest son to share. For this page, I’ve combined several of the FABULOUS CE 6×6 panels. I just love cutting bits here and there and using them as layering elements. I used paints to alter most of the chippies on my page, but left the mesh panel bare since I wanted to incorporate a variety of neutrals to offset my vibrant bg paper and the bold colors for the chevrons and frames.

I’ve also combined 2 challenges as inspiration for my layout. The sketch and title are for the Scrap and Music challenge #23 (Someone Like You) and the I added the magic and wonder theme from 7 dots studio. Hope you like what I came up with!

Reluctant Model – layout for Sketchabilities #104

For my example of sketch #104 at Sketchabilities, I picked a photo that was taken of Matthew shortly after we got home after a haircut. He was tired and didn’t really want his picture taken at the moment, but I really thought he looked cute with his new cut, so I asked him to smile for one. He agreed to just 1…AFTER I’d taken this picture. lol I scrapped the photo of him grinning broadly a few weeks ago…this is actually a pic a took just seconds before that one. 😀
