Well Here It Is…..

My first sample done for the fantastic Frosted Designs Challenge Blog.  I am on one of the Fabulous Friday Teams, and this weeks challenge is to use Kraft on your project.

This is what I did:


When I first saw the layered sticker with the lyrics to “Here Comes The Sun” by George Harrison – I just knew I had to do a layout about how that is my husband’s and my special song for a little boy.

It began when Connor was only a few days old, and I was pacing the hospital room with him screaming, almost delirious from lack of sleep (yes…ALREADY!!) I noticed the sun coming up, and started to sing it to him – it calmed him down, and  I quickly learn that singing any sweet toned song to him was calming….  But that song just stuck…

I also couldn’t resist adding some WOW – Words or Whatever chippy to the layout.  I’ve used Block Capital Uppercase C1388 as part of my title.  I’ve inked it in yellow chalk ink to match.

Here is a closie:


Speaking of WOW – Wendy has another fantastic Inspiration Post up on the Blog

Here is the layout I did for it:


On this layout I've used the saying "Boys Will Be Boys" C1447. I've embossed the saying with Opals - Lemon Thyme, then added some Yellow Chalk Ink to alter the colours slightly to match.
I've also used Cog Frame Set C819 - Inked with Distress Ink in Chipped Sapphire. 

Here is a close-up of the altered chipboard:


This paper range is one of my favourite go-tos at the moment – Echo Park Boy’s Life – just love the bright colours, they are perfect for boy’s pages!

Photos are of Connor in his Pop’s pedal car – genuine vintage that….

Well, that’s it for me, going to finish my wine, have a shower then play with some paper Smile

Got some BRAND NEW Altamatz  from WOW to play with – feeling super lucky, and I’ll share when I’m done!
