12 times a day

Here is another layout that I did of my son when he was 3months. It was a tough time for us as he was still not sleeping through the night and was feeding every 2 hours. I had a hard time with the colours on this page. Really wanted to use the milk tabs ..... oh well.... the mojo doesn't always flow! What can you do.
Because I like to use a new technique, something old from my stash and something new, here is what I used. New tech: I used a piece of bubble wrap and used it as a stamp on my paper. Something old: lots here - all the paper is old, I used my vintage milk tabs, lots of old buttons, the measuring tape I have had for years and my something new: well..... not much here.... The Love Bingo card I got a while back from LivingRoomFloor at great old Etsy as well as a Heidi Swapp transparent leaf, the letters (times) was a hybrid newbie from Peppermint Creative, and of course I love to have my dear son's name or initial somewhere on the page so I tore the Parker's out of the phone book and painted the edges as well... And as usual, I have used some Melissa Frances rubons of the wings. Love those rubons!

Thanks for looking.

Two new pages - FINALLY!

I have finally been able to finish the Pumpkin Pie page that I started months ago. Then I was on a roll and did the Simply Perfect page. I have been itching to do a 'girly' page and this was the one!

For the Pumpkin Pie page I used alot of different products (Costco paper, Melissa Frances stickers, and so much more...) I like to try a new technique, use old product and something new on a page. So my something new was the paper and the felt (sorry can't remember who). The something old was the Melissa Frances stickers I had forever and the new technique was some photo editing tips I got from the Jessica Sprague book. Also used some flocking and did my own transfer from packing tape and some paper from an old Peter the Rabbit book.

For the Simply Perfect page I used alot of ephemera I got offline, tissue for the flowers and lots of lace from my grandmother's stash. Also used some old paper from that old Peter Rabbit book. It was fun to do this one as it has soooo many layers! Really like the 'cluttered' look!

Thanks for looking!
