It's Sue here with you for the final time this month. Today I am sharing a layout I created featuring a photo of my boys when they finally came home from hospital (10 weeks after being born). For this one I wanted to create something soft and pretty, because I don't think you can get anything more deserving than a newborn (or two!)
I started by finding some papers I thought would do the job, and then set about raiding my D-lish stash for the perfect embellishments to go with them. (The papers used on this layout are a mix of Studio Calico; Kaisercraft and Websters Pages.)
In this cluster beside my photo I used a Pinkfresh Studio - Up in the Clouds gold foil die cut; a flair button; a gorgeous Green Tara mini heirloom flower; a paper rose and a Forget Me Not. (Don't be afraid to use touches of pinks or peach on baby boy layouts!) I also attached a Journal It's - Wordfetti strip to my photo with a small gold wooden peg.
This next cluster features more beautiful paper roses (because you just can't go past the classics!); my favourite grey paper doily; Pinkfresh Studio - Up in the Clouds gold rub ons; D-lish Dots; washi tape; and a Freckled Fawn Wood Chip arrow word (coloured with gold paint pen). I love the way all these elements combine.
For my final cluster, I repeated the same grey paper doily, paper blooms, washi tape, rub-ons and D-lish Dots as I had used previously. This time, I also added some more strips cut from a Journal It's - Wordfetti, a handmade heart embellishment from my stash, and finished it all off with a gorgeous gold sequin bow. (These bows make me happy!)
Til next time, happy scrapping!
