Sweet Dreams

I'm having fun going through my son's old photos and finally scrapping them. It's good to remember how little and adorable he was.

I used one of my Noel Mignon kits for this layout. The papers were from the summer kit. It was fun to be able to use them for non summer pictures. I added embellishments from my stash, white mist from Dyllusions, white chalk ink from Quick Quotes, and a white Signo pen for accents.

The sketch I used for this layout is from Stuck?! Sketches. It's another Laura Whitaker sketch, which I love! Her sketches allow people to have some guidelines without being stuck (see what I did there?) within a set of parameters. I love her sketches!

I used a dropper to add some big drops of the Dyllusions white ink to the page. The dropper makes it easier to control the ink and the splashes.

I love using flair as embellishments. To create these subtle circles I freehand drew them with a glue pen, then sprinkled clear embossing powder over them. I like the effect a lot.

These Thickers are so much fun! The stitching effect inspired the "stitching" I added to the page with the white pen. I wish I had another set of these Thickers!

I used the last of my Jillibean buttons on this layout. I adore them! I may have to get some more. Again, I created a subtle circle with glue and embossing powder.

Thank you for looking at my layout. Please leave me some blog love and let me know your thoughts. Thanks!
