Bambo Baby

 

 
 
 
Sorry it's been so quiet around here.  Been a bit swamped, we had some relatives in town over the weekend, a bunch of family/friend activities, and I've been working on DT projects and cards for the PC call.  BUT, I've been itching to do some layouts, so here's my take at the current Pretty Little Studio sketch.  I'm also going to link it up at ScrapFIT since I've got stars in my layout.

This is kind of a companion layout to the one I did for last week's sketch.  I just love the look Carina has....that 'why am I here and what is going on' look.

The pretty houndstooth paper is from Pretty Little Studio's Sand Castle collection.  I used the full size sheet, for the grid, and you guessed it...Slate cardstock.  Pretty Little Studio collections always have some sheets that have the prints on a smaller scale, in quadrants on a full size sheet, so I used the mini pink houndstooth quadrant to cover a Jenni Bowlin star.



One of my goals for this year is to do a better job of incorporating stamping on my layouts.  The stamp set I used is an older CTMH one that came with the Elemental workshop on the go.  The little 'circles' at the top were stamped using that set.  Those are actually half circles.  I stamped them and then used a circle punch to cut them out.  The little plaid stars are also from that stamp set.



Lots of machine stitching on this one too.

Hope that you had a great start to the week!

  2. LOVE this layout with the B&W photos--the pink and grey/sorry SLATE are perfect compliments--soft but with lots of graphic interest. I have those same 1/2 circle stamps--I'll have to dig them out!
