BSHS | by Nicolee Cable

hello hello hello...
I hope your Christmas plans are shaping up well......I'm not on holidays yet but I think most things are ready for our big day!

I'd like to share this layout of our youngest son, celebrating a win with his school basketball team last season. I love this photo that a friend captured, he's the one with the cap on and such joy on his face - how could I NOT scrap this memory!!

I often struggle with primary colours but I think I've managed to do this one justice by anchoring it with a gray/charcoal water colour background. It grounds it and gives a soft depth.

I've ripped up a little bag into pieces and just layered it randomly across the page.
I hand cut (yes, it's not perfect!!) the title BSHS (his school) and used it as a foundational layout feature, kind of burying it with the background elements, even though it's the title.
I then ripped up a couple of pieces of washi tape and added to the sides.
I then painted the Creative Cuts bubbles a beautiful water colour blue.

I've cut some Kinder Kreations aerobars in half and positioned them above and below the photo.
I found some matching mini pom-pom wool and glued it on to the hexagon frame, just for something different.

 I then added the resin stars, sequin stars and other embellishment clusters on the layout.

Here is a list of the D-lish embellishments used:

washi tape (from an old JAP kit)
sequin stars (from an old JAP kit)
journal its tab (from an old JAP kit)

I hope you are inspired to create during the holidays and have some time to do so.  I would like to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and I'm looking forward to joining you in the new year! 
Please note the store closure dates as Amanda has a well deserved break over this holiday period.  I'm sure 2018 is going to be a wonderful year for D-lish and its fans, so stay tuned.

All my love
Nicolee xxx
