|Cowboy First Birthday Layout|
|October Afternoon Sketch Challenge|
6 September 2012
I primarily used the October Afternoon Sasparilla line throughout the layout. I've really come to love their Miscellany packs that have all sorts of neat items in them. Several of the buttons, the cowboy flash card and the sheriff's badge come from the Miscellany pack.
The sheriff's badge and corrugated alphabet were both in Kraft and I painted them to match the colors in the pattern papers. I made the paper rosette and little vintage tag at the bottom with 22 stamped on it (his birthday). Stampin' UP So Saffron ink was used to distress the tiny embossed stars, the edges of the layout and the doily. Who says you can't use a doily on a boy's layout?
I thought the cross stitch borders was a fun way to finish it all off.
It's about time I started scrapping some of Reid's first birthday photos as his second birthday is only 2 weeks away - go figure!
