big brother & little brother

 I've used the palette over at The Colour Room for this LO - it's their 50th palette and they have a great blog hop happening with all the designers showcasing their LO's and talent.  So take a peek!!
This colour palette is really a good one for me - with boys we can always use blue!
I'm really enjoying making different BG's for my LO's - for this page I've used a stamp, white ink and embossing powder - once the image was embossed, I've lightly sprayed with glimmer-mist, allowing the white image to show thru.  I love this effect and will def. do this again - I have tonnes of stamps to use!
Here's some close-up's:
 a large birdie button (keep an eye out for these - I have some for my Etsy shop)
 I used Leeann's technique to colour bakers twine and pegs with glimmer-mist - it worked great - I used these pegs and twine to make a little bunting.
 Here I've used the Arty Tree Road from Stuff 2 Scrap - I've used white ink to colour the chipboard, stamped up some small words onto the chipboard, then embellished the trees with buttons. This sits on a white doily and I've added in some roses and blue/white twine.

.... and here's the colour palette if you would like to play along too!  There's a sketch to use as well; which I started out with, but then as my LO progressed, I shuffled things around a little.
Thanks for coming by!
