Busy Bee

What an inspiration it is to have a late night Scrapping session with a like minded friend. The challenge that I chose was Scrapbookit's March challenge All About Boys. When I started my Scrapbooking journey it was all about girls because for the first eight years There was no grandson on the horizon. It took me a while to learn how to use the boy side of my brain and to also build up a boy related stash. The photo's that I have used are of Noah in the garden. Anything to do with water or has wheels attached and he is a very busy little boy. These photo's incorporate both. I used as my starting point paper from the Bella Rosa Collection pack from Bo Bunny and then added bits and pieces to make it a bit busy like him.

The challenge for this month for the 123 Challenge Blog was Brown, Borders and the word Fun. To create an interesting depth with the colour brown I have used four different shades  and then added just a hint of aqua. Using three different border punches I then layered them length ways on the page alternating all the different papers and borders that I had chosen.  Using the same papers I then triple matted the photo. The photo was a fun photo taken of Chloe and Noah tickling Lily as we were trying to set up a photo of the three. The two littlest thought that it was great fun. I then added some flowers and twine and some bling scattered around the photo. To finish the page I then randomly border punched a few spots and mounted the page on the brown cardstock. The word fun was a plywood cut out that I inked and then glossed.
If you enjoyed my page take the time to pop over to the 123 Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the design team have created and maybe do the challenge yourself.
Cheers and Happy Scrapping
