I love you my son layout

I love you my son is the title for my take on the sketch challenge over at RSS this month. Here is the sketch


And here is my layout


I have used Three Bugs in a Rug Pattern Paper with white core dinations as the backing paper. Painted some corrugated cardboard with red metallic paint and inked it. Also our 100% boys ribbon for the bottom of the cardboard.


For my title I painted and inked chipboard letters then attached our love and bike charms


There are so many products out there using paperclips for scrapbooking, that I decided to make my own with our charms. To create the circles I punched out 2 circles, 1 larger circle using black core dinations cardstock for the backing and attached a paper clip to the back.
Core dinations is great to distress as it has an inner core colour which I emphasised by running my craft knife around the edges.
Then I downloaded an old newspaper, inked it and then attached the boys cap charm with Dimensional Magic. Black organza ribbon was used to tie the car charm to the paper clip. The arrow is from scrapware which I inked, dimensional magic and added one of our black rhinestones.


Bull dog clip, string (wiped with ink) and our little boy charms for the top corner of the photo
TFL and hope you all have a creative week

I struggle so much with boy pages, I think because I find it hard to know what embellishments to use. :( I love this one its really simple and looks fantastic
