6 m.o. - ACC & Scrap Our Stash

So if you dropped by last week, I shared the tid-bit that I was attending a crop on the weekend. I am pleased to say I actually made it to this crop and did manage to create almost 4 pages (3 complete and 1 that just isn't sitting right yet with me) which I will be sharing over the next week.
First cab off the rank is a page featuring my most favourite photo of Jayce EVER! I LOVE this photo! I think it is a mix of the colours and the eyes and his super huge smile.

6 m.o.

The layout combines two current scrappy challenges for this month. The first being my good ol' faithful sketch challenge at the Australian online scrap store Annas Craft Cupboard.

The second comes courtesy of Scrap Our Stash and their latest Stash Challenge #16 which is a shopping list for you to choose 5 items and find them in your personal supplies. I have used wood veneer, stars, washi tape, flair button and a paper clip (close ups of each below).

I have had the Elle's Studio Cameron collection hiding in my stash for a looong time. Once I stumbled on this photo again I knew they were going together! Esp this background paper. The pre-printed cluster down the left side already had the perfect words for this photo. But I added extra to it for added omph.

The 'A smile is contagious' is a stamp that a lady next to me at the crop was generous enough to let me borrow! It is super suitable for this page.

You may have noticed I love to fussy cut around the natural lines of patterned paper. Maybe I'm just no good at original thought. I just can't help it.

And yes I am now going back to look at the layout again and see if the photo is in fact not at all straight! I really hope its straight!! Going to drive me crazy otherwise!
