You are growing up...


I have a couple of entries to share with you on this cool, crisp day.

My first entry was submitted at Soul Scrappers
for their Word Challenge - STILL (WC16).

I chose a sketch from Scrapbooks, Etc. (May/June 2009).
Here's my layout:
Love this photo of Andrew, looking so sharp in his uniform.  Photo was taken by our
daughter after his graduation from Basic Training in Texas.

Journaling reads:
You are growing up...
but you are STILL my little boy!

Supplies used:
Paper: Colorbok, DCWV
Arrows: Hand Made
Silver Sharpie Marker
Computer Font: Polonaise
Ink: A la mode Blue
Sharpie Marker

 The hearts were traced & cut from a random die cut I've had and the edges sanded.
The arrows was traced along the edges with a silver sharpie.

I'll call this my "arrow grouping" since there are several arrows pointing toward
the photo.
I placed the journaling blocks onto the blue cardstock and outlined it with silver.
The large arrow was hand made.  Dashes were made along the edges and inked after.
I have several strips of patterned papers behind the photo as well as various ribbons.

A better look at my arrow and layering.  A different size heart which was also traced,
cut and sanded. 

Here's a closer look at my grouping. 

I just HAD to show you a closer look at my boy!  :) 

An even closer look at my layering of papers and ribbons and the silver dashes along
the large arrow.

And now for my card.   I submitted this card at Colorful Creations
for their Card Challenge using Metal (Novembercard).

The metal piece is the star on the tip of the tag.  Hard to miss it... as it's such a dark purple!  :)
Love this border punch!  It's so elegant.  I punched a couple of strips of cardstock and layered
them, cut out the tag, added the sentiment and flower stamps and ribbon.  The edges were inked.

Supplies used:
DCWV, White cardstock
EK Success Border Punch
Tag: Paper Pizazz
Metal Star Brad
Ink: A la mode Aqua & Stampin' Up! Lavender Lace
Sentiment & Flower Stamps (unknown brand)

Thanks for taking a peek at my Blog!
Hope you'll stop by again!
