this letter

Hello - I have one more page to share which will finish off my collection of Then & Now by Teresa Collins - I have totally LOVED working with these papers and embellishments ☺
 The other day my little man was playing with this letter C and I was taking some pictures of him.  Of course, he wants to take pictures too so I let him take a few -  when I was editing my photo's I found this one I liked ☺  And decided to use it for a page.
I've used the 12x12 chevron pattern paper for the base and have done some subtle stamping using ink and also Silks Glaze.  I've gone with a banner style design - you will know it's my favourite by now.  I've added in a few hand-made embellishments and some paper lace doilies.  Here are some close-up's:

I have used a number of the die-cut accessories - the little tags and words make it so easy.  I've even used some of the packing for one of the banners along with the cute decorative brads.
My journalling is a bible text which goes well with this letter c!

The school holidays are now upon us ☺  So I'm hoping for lots of relaxing and fun days with my family and hopefully some touches of scrap booking in between.
As the year is fast closing in - I would love to say a big thank you to all my readers - I enjoy reading your comments and appreciate you popping by.  I love sharing my work and hope you have been inspired in some way ☺
