On the Beach and Boys Layouts

Howdy Jess here ...

On friday I got my AWESOME order from my2angels ...woohoo!!!
I certainly took advantage of the sale and nabbed me some FAB bargains.....

So what was a girl to do with a whole bunch of new scrappy bits? Spend the weekend scrapping of course......and here's a couple of lo's I can share...

First up is a lo about my boys at the beach.....I wanted to keep it simple as I really wanted the photo to stand out....

I've used the October Afternoon Seaside range.....and an awesome Tattered Angels bingo card....I also used the Tattered Angels packaging as a photo matt and for my journallings strips! I sprayed my cs with some yummy Glimmermist.....


Tracy sent me a gorgeous M2A design white felt frame which I sooooo just HAD to use....it didn't fit my photo so I chopped it up, sprayed it with some Glimmermist and used it as a lovely textured scalloped border piece! I used one of the Scrapware sailboat chippies and just coloured it in with some gel pens......



I love these Scrapware cloud chippies....I sprayed them with Glimmermist, embossed them with Tim Holtz Distress Powder then added a geneerous coating of Crackle Accent.....they turned out to match the water in the photo so beautifully....



Finally I added a bit ofmy2angels black rhinestone scroll....and there ya have it...one lo : )



For my second lo I used a mix of Sassafrass Lass, October Afternoon and Cosmo Cricket pp's......the journalling is on an awesome scrapware chippy....


I couldn't wait to use one of Tracy's new pins, which I tucked into some gorgeously green bakers twine and added a cute little bicycle charm.......


To give these Scrapware cogs a little something extra, I sprayed them with Glimmermist then added on Some Crackle Accent....


And for a little bit of somethin somethin...I popped on some my2angels 100% boys ribbon......



Well we've come to the end of the post folks....Thanks for having a gander.....
Love and Peace xox
