A year of Firsts ** Scrap That! Exclusive Pion Design “Birdsong” Kit/TCR/OUAS **

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog. Well this week is just gorgeous here, hot and feels like summer still, except pretty chilly at nights now. For this layout I used my Scrap That! Exclusive Pion Design “Birdsong” Kit.. the sketch from Once Upon a Sketch and this weeks palette at the Color Room. The photo is my grandson and one of my dogs and is called “a year of firsts”. There is a hidden journaling tag and lists just a few of his firsts this year.



The little square under the flower cluster is actually a piece of DA. I painted it, inked the edges and added a stamp to it. I tucked in some Tim Holtz film strips in with the flower clusters and a Prima metal trinket. I made the brown flower yesterday and I love it!!! I will do up a tutorial soon on that flower, it was super easy to make.

In this close up you can see all the layers of goodies. I have a DA scroll under the small flower cluster and a DA border piece on top of the punched piece. I used a tutorial at DA and I first painted the DA then I stamped it and inked it and covered it with crackle accents.


You can see the DA border piece better here and the tucked in journaling tag in with the layers.


Ok well that is it for today. Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you have a fantastic week.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
