Adore Our Gift From Above, and Memories I Love - The Scrapbook Store

 My 2nd layout for The Scrapbook Store this month is of my son Jesse, using the Websters Pages 'Modern Romance' paper collection, along with some other products, which are listed below.  I used a mixture of flowers from both Prima Marketing and Manor House, and highlighted with foliage SVG files using the Silhouette Cameo.
Jesse was only a couple of months old in this photograph - whenever he couldn't find his dummy (pacifier) he would suck on his thumb.  This stage did not last long thankfully, and he soon tossed the dummy at around 9 months.  Its not the best photograph, as was snapped on my old phone, but its still very precious to me..... and one I needed to scrap.
I used elements for the title from the 'Carving Our Name' paper, and the title was painted using the 'Pool' acrylic paint dabber - such a pretty colour!! The tiny birds, were fussy cut from the 'Candlelight' paper...

Materials:
Buttercup Cardstock (unknown brand)
Manor House, Winters Song-Snowbird Flowers
Silhouette Cameo and SVG Files

.....and a 2nd layout of me, at kindergarten.  I was only 3 when I went to Kindy, and started school at the age of 4 - very different to today.  Again, I used the Websters Pages, Modern Romance paper collection and various elements available at The Scrapbook Store.
The highlight of this layout is the gorgeous Manor House vine flower, that I added in extra flowers too, and some fine branches using the Martha Stewart 'Branch' punch.
The background die-cut paper was fairly bright, so I applied a light coat of Gesso over the entire paper to subdue the colour a little, and sprinkled/sprayed with Primrose Color Shine.
 The sketch for this month is still running, and you can enter by heading into the Gallery.  Details of this months sketch, can be found 'HERE'... great prize to be won too!!!
Have a great day/afternoon, evening ....

White Shimmer Paper (no brand)

Both layouts are too cute for words, however I do love the little thumb in the mouth, he looks so content. I love the colours on these pages too.
