beach bum

hello - it feels like forever that I've been here to share something - I have been busy creating though, working on some things for a shop!!  I hope to share that with you soon ☺
Today I got this LO together for the sketch challenge at Basic Grey - the sketch is by Leeann and is such a fabulous and fun sketch to play with and of course you need to use Basic Grey papers☺
So here is my take on the sketch"
 So this is not your typical beachy theme LO with these pattern papers, but I decided to try and make them work anyway.  I just LOVE these photo's of my little one with his cousin♥♥.
Most of the papers are from the Picadilly collection - I've also used some of the Basic Grey fabric bloomers and sticker letters for the title.
Here are some close-up's:
 ... love these fabric bloomers ... Basic Grey sticker letters - I've outlined in a black pen ... and a resin bird from Polly Scrap Kits...
 ... the flag element of the sketch with twine and another fabric bloomer ...
 ... I've also added in lots of stitching ... and some stamping using Basic Grey stamps ...

And here is the fun sketch to work with:
Ok, that's all for today - thanks so much for coming by - I appreciate you looking at my work.

I'm still finishing up my LO based on the BG sketch and I just happened to click on your link in comments. So glad I did! I love your interpretation of the sketch! New follower, too.

Popped over from the BG link and I am so glad I did! Love the pictures but the felt flowers and the visual FLOW are wonderful. Really lovely.

What a 'cheeky' layout ... when he's older he's either going to love that his bottom was your 'theme' or hate it! But it's cute!

The Picadilly papers are perfect for this layout, love it!
