it's reveal time!! i wanted to pop in quickly with my layouts for the month before i head out for cha. i'll start with my main only LO for the month. =)
i love this photo of my littlest daredevil and i thought it would mix well with the softer tones of this kit. i knew pebbles bag would be perfect for holding a bit more journaling that i could fit on the page.
i took the journaling from my blog post about sam's playground adventure, and added a small photo to the strip as well. i did cut the bag down a bit, then stitched it shut across the bottom.
this was made with addon 1, CLARKSVILLE. i started by placing the photo, the envelope and the polaroid cut from the dear lizzy paper. i dressed up the envelope with some patterned paper on the flap, and then added some misted stars and an arrow from the brad pack. i punched some stars from the polaroid paper and then backed it with the dear lizzy crepe. i stamped the background stamp with malted milk ink & added a few sequins, and cut a few shapes with my cameo and misted them with mister huey's heirloom blue.
i'm also quite in love with the stamps from STEPPING STONE. i stamped the outline with black ink, and then i stamped the solid image with the same - i just stamped it off first so the image would be more faded.
from there, i cut bits and pieces from the number dear lizzy paper from LADY LANE and scattered them around the page, and then added typed journaling. i've been feeling a little melancholy about my littlest dude getting older, and this was the perfect page to record that. i misted the background little mister huey's cameo + shine. i also used some paper from the main.
i used grey paint on the stamp from clarksville for a tone on tone look w/ the background - i also used it on the solid letter stamps, and then went over it with the outlines in black ink.
happy (very early) saturday! please let me know if you have any questions about how i put these together - please leave a comment and i'll do my best to explain it! see you next week. =)
