Finally a scrap layout! :)
I had a few photographs of my grandson Alistair taken on the same day, and have made a layout already using one... but these two picies of him yawning were just begging to be put onto a layout. I titled the layout:
"Being This Cute Is Just So Very Tiring".
After all the papercrafting and mini-book making I've done over the past few weeks, this seemed too simple. I didn't want any huge swathes of flowers or loads of embellishments - and this kind of feels like I've cheated somehow. Maybe it's just me trying to get used to scrapbooking a 12x12 layout again.... who knows?!
The cardstock and papers are nearly all My Minds Eye, with a little Core'dinations thrown in for the blues. Some of the flowers are raised with silicone glue - but I wanted them to be part of the pattern rather than a statement factor of the layout.
You really don't have to look too closely to see what a mess I can make with a little daub of glue *lol*
The title is part handwritten, and the letters on the banner are cut using the Tim Holtz "Once Upon A Time" Sizzix strip die. A little bit of handstitching... and a couple of die-cut birdies to look as if they're holding the banner-string in their beaks and it was just about done. I think I need to get back into practise... but making boxes and books is so much fun! *lol*
