I've managed a little bit of scrapbooking this week. I've been spending alot of time, going thru my craft room, sorting out the many boxes of assorted goodies I have and trying to decide what to keep and what I think I may use. WOW, I really didn't know how much 'stuff' I had accumulated over the years. It's amazing and has been lots of fun. After focusing on Stampin'Up product for the past three years, it will be nice to use some of the other products in my stash, especially in scrapbooking. So anyway, I've created this 8x8 layout using some neglected product that I found. I love these cute photo's of Caden with his dad; they have such a close bond and share many fun times.
The base is SU cardstock in Not Quite Navy. I've used the Friendly Words wheel to create a background.
I've matted the bigger photo onto a Top Note Diecut in Riding Hood Red.
I've made the little tag using by re-cycling a clothing tag - isn't it the cutest? The other day a friend gave me some Cuttlebug dies that she no longer uses and I've already put one to good use - the little 'love' stamp on the tag was made with it. I've added some dotted ribbon and a button.
Here's a closer look at the details:
The chipboard letters to make the word 'dad', have been painted with red paint, then I've sanded the edges. I've stamped some heart images from the Sprinkles stamp set, but the photo does not pick this up.
