He Loves making a Splash!!

And here is another My 2 Angels DT share...said a I had a few LOL...I found this photo in my ever growing mountain of 'to scrap' was one that Wendy had taken when the kids were mucking around in our pool in Jan 2008, and when my little son was 4 and still swam with floaties on. He looked so cute and so happy being able to float around the pool under his own steam.

For this layout I used mainly coredinations cardstock, with a hint of the orange side of a piece of Adorn It Carolees Creations Rev Em Up Fast Ride A.

I painted some cute little scrapware sail boats with acrylic paints, and gave them a little spray with the clear glacier mist from the glimmermist winter wishes kit. While they were drying, I used the leftover board from the sail boat set as a stencil and misted two boats onto the white cardstock using Moonlight glimmermist. I placed the painted boat shapes just off to the side of the stencilled ones to give a glimmermist shadow effect. I added a cute little bird charm as it reminded me of a seagull. The ruffled ribbon is a navy blue organza ribbon that I gathered using a machine stitch and zigzag stitched in place to look like water.

I ran a piece of the blue coredinations cardstock thru my sizzix machine and embossed it with a Tim Holtz embossing folder, then sanded it lightly to make the pattern stand out.

Materials used:
Cardstock - coredinations cardstock

I just love his happy and so free :)

...My Guys...

Here is my next share for the My 2 Angels Design Team...ahhh boys month...I love this photo of my husband and son together. I took this photo on Mothers Day 2007 with my new camera and it is still one of my faves. A little snapshot in time of my 2 favourite guys.

For this layout I used the fantastic new Fancy Pants paper range Like Father Like Son, and the co-ordinating element stickers. The background is the Be Strong paper, and I have layered this with a piece of the reverse side of this paper as well, and a piece of the reverse side of Little Tike. I machine stitched around all the pieces of pattern paper, as well as the background paper to enhance to printed stitch pattern in the papers.

I added layers of stickers from the element stickers, which I mounted onto cardstock, cut around and layered with foam tape.

Materials Used:

Back again soon with even more to share!

Bam! Ka-pow!!

Hey bloggers :) Gosh I've been a wee little bit slow with the posting this month (sorry *hugs*)... here is a my first catch up post...

It's BOY month over at My 2 Angels and we have been having lots of good boy fun doing boy LO's. Here is my first for September...Bam! Ka-pow! It's my Tough Guy little guy loves to dress up like a super hero...running around the house cape a-flappin', protecting everyone from his 'evil' sisters (much to their disgust!!!!)...
The backing cardstock is the reverse side of a piece of Sassafras Lass Monstrosity Take Note, that I machine stitched around the pattern to add a little bit more detail. I layered this with some SEI Happy Days Balloon (green side) and October Afternoon Cherry Hill Egg Basket papers. The title Mr Tough Guy Superhero is a combination of Sass Lass Apple Jack Glitter Alpha stickers and Like Father Like Son Element Stickers.
I mounted some My 2 Angels Extreme boy ribbon onto some thick chipboard that I painted and inked to add in the necessary superhero words. The Bam! and Ka-pow words are American Crafts Thickers Jewelry Box black alphas. I cut around 2 of my photos to be able to squeeze them onto the page without cluttering it up too much.

Materials Used:

Pattern Papers - Sassafras Lass Monstrosity Take Note, SEI Happy Days Balloon, October Afternoon Cherry Hill Egg Basket.

Hmmmm....I think this LO might come in VERY handy when he starts bringing girlfriends home...hehehehe...
