Wiped Out...

My youngest is just starting to get confident in the ocean and loves to jump the waves at the beach...this time, the waves jumped him LOL...We are really beach loving people so this months theme at My 2 Angels really isn't a challenge at all!!!
For this layout, I took a piece of  kraft cardstock and lightly misted it with glimmermist. I added a Bo Bunny Mama-razzi Panoramic die cut, trimmed the middle a bit and adhered it to the misted background, placed my photos, smeared crystalina kindyglitz along the bottom third of the page then sprinkled diamond dust all over to give a sandy feel. I added a torn and scrunched onion/fruit mesh bag (recycled scrapping at it's finest!!) and added dobs of glue and more diamond dust. I placed some cute fish, turtle and a shell shaped follow your heart charm in the mesh and attached using silver jump rings.


The title was done using letter stickers that were inked lightly, adhered, outlined with pen then highlighted with kindyglitz and diamond dust. The arrow has been inked then coated with black embossing powder and shiny embossed.


The journalling block is the fabulous little imaginisce To Love and Cherish Snag'em stamp frame (and at $1.99 it was an absolute BARGAIN!!!!) - stamped onto a random piece of scrap chipboard then lightly rubbed over with ink to 'dirty' it up a bit.
To make the circle frame and star embellishment, I cut out a circle frame and a star from chipboard (or you could die cut one if you have sizzix/cuttlebug). I coated the circle frame in some ink then used Ranger embossing puffs embossing powder (black). Sooo gave a fuzzy flocked effect. I inked the tips of the star and dipped it into some white embossing puffs, then added some - yep you guessed it - kindyglitz and diamond dust for added texture. The silver circle frame charm has a cute little 'youthful' word from the bottom of a set of Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type alpha stickers, and has also been given the kindyglitz/diamond dust treatment.

Materials used:
Titles and Journalling - Making Memories Paperie Letter stickers (poolside), Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type Letter stickers, Imaginisce To Love and Cherish Snag'em Stamps - clear frame.
Embellishments- Follow your heart charm, fish charms, turtle charm, silver circle frame charm, silver jump rings, onion/fruit bag, chipboard arrow, black rhinestone swirl (you could make this yourself EASILY by using pva and our loose black rhinestones), black organza ribbon.
Product - glimmer mist (yellow daisy, moonlight from the Winter Wishes kit), Twinklets diamond dust, crystallina kindyglitz, Ranger embossing puffs (black, white), Zing black embossing powder.

Hope you like the pics of my half drowned son LOL!

Adore My Little Cougar

And here is the fourth of this month's My 2 Angels DT shares...This photo was taken of my son at Auskick...he looked so serious and tough and BIG in his little footy guernsey. I really loved the classic old fashioned footy photo feel of this picture, so I kept the papers toned right down to suit.

I used a mix of different papers, with the backing paper being a piece of Bo Bunny Mama-razzi Aperature, the numbered paper is a piece of Sass Lass Apple Jack Translate, some dotty Jenni Bowlin Extension Black Micro Dot, and some Like Father Like Son Big Guy (both sides).

 I stamped an Imaginisce To Love & Cherish Snag'em journalling box stamp onto some Tim Holtz Grungeboard and used some of the cute little Jenni Bowlin TIny Circle Alphas to journal with. The title is Holly Doodle Alphabet stickers - cubicle that I rubbed with black ink, stuck down then coated with dimensional magic. I finished off with a large pearl head pin with some ribbon snippets tied around it and a pair of footy boot charms on a charm ring.

Materials Used:
Product used -  black ink, dimensional magic.

awww my rugged little boy...
