This turned out to be another sentimental layout. I love it when I get to blend all the scrapbook items as well as the photos, to complement each other. :D
It's the first time that I used a quote for a long title. This was taken from Technique Tuesdays Ali Edwards stamp collection.
I used Get Picky's September sketch challenge #12:
Our family photo was taken last April 2011. Little boy looked adorable even if he wasn't looking directly at the cam. The photographer's assistant tried in vain to make him smile. Hahaha. :D
As always, I took some close-up shots to showcase the techniques I applied in creating the layout.
Look at that! Lovely layers of fussy cut patterned paper,
clustered together and further accentuated with Zva Creative crystals.
painted with white acrylic paint and Golden coarse pumice gel.
Look at that texture. Love it!
Ranger blue perfect pearls mist
to fill up the upper right and lower left corners.
Materials are all from Scrap That's "Romantic Spring" May 2011 kit.
Additional embellishments: Kaisercraft metal key, Creative Imaginations metal word sentiment, Shabby Green Door baker's twine, Maya Road pearl pins, Technique Tuesdays quote stamp, Webster's Pages floral whimsy, acrylic paint, coarse pumice gel.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to submit this in time for the deadline. Totally forgot about it and was soooo busy with lots of stuff. Oh well. Hahaha! :D
However, I am entering this in Scrapbookers Anonymous' various challenges for the month of September, as follows:
1. Main challenge: chipboard
2. Birthday mini-stash challenges: long title, bling-bling and stamping! Wee!!! :D
I'd like to thank Lea for posting her comment and informing me about the above challenges. :D
Lastly, this LO is totally a 101% labor of love.
