Tuesday Talk

I'm back in scrapbooking mode again today and I'm entering this page into a new to me challenge at Scrap the Boys. And with all my boys this seems like the perfect challenge blog for me and I'm delighted to have found it.

The challenge for November is to use this mood board:

And this my page:

I fell in love with this photo as soon as my son sent it to me - my little grandson looking very pleased with himself for discovering hot chocolate!

And as his pyjamas had stars on I decided to use them as the basis for my page. So I started with the base paper in the orange from the mood board and then added the diagonal top and bottom starry strips. Next I stamped some stars down the right hand side and matted up the photo using the green and black from the mood board.

Finally I added a note pad and some die cut stars using the beige mood board colour and finished off the whole page with a title, enamel shapes, die cuts and word stickers.

Papers: Bazzill Basics cardstock; Kaisercraft, A Touch of Gold; ep, Times & Seasons
Stamps: Uniko, Background Builders Seeing Stars 
Ink: SU, baked brown sugar 
Punch: ek, notepad top
Dies: Xcut, stars; MFT Die-namics, cute cameras & ampersand
Alphas & stickers: Frcled Fawn; Simple Stories, I Am
Embellishments: SU enamel shapes 

Well I'm so pleased you found my blog today, huge thanks for your time.  And keep crafting!
