Scrapbook Acadamey DT project!

I was quite happy with how my DT project for The Scrapbook Academy, turned out and I thought I would share my creations with you!

I used BasicGrey, Offbeat collection 12X12 patterned paper , Elements Sticker sheet, Offbeat Olio Rub-Ons, fibres and glazed brads. I also used my beloved Melissa Frances rub-ons, my QK Silhouette and squeeze 2X2 dies.

The paper has a very modern feel to it and I decided to use the co-ordinating stickers and rub-ons for the focal image instead of a stamped image. I really like how they turned favourite is the thank you card...the fresh green and brown go so nicely together!

Then I worked on my 12X12 layout. All the kids albums and our Family Yearbooks are 12X12. I also have a series of "all about me books" that I call "Pieces of Me" that are 8X8. I really enjoy scrapbooking about me. I have tried to jounal over the years but I can never stick to it so the 8X8 books are like my "photo Journal" and it gives me a reason to stand in front of the camera from time to time.

For this page I focused on my son, Kieran, the apple of my eye! He is such a sweet guy and a real ham too. He always has me crackin' up and I think both his sweet and silly side came out in theses pics that I took of him outside playing after school!

I really love this paper....well, I love all BG paper but I think this paper will be perfect for another great layout idea that I have. *Note to self...get some more of this fabulous BG pp!

I only added a bit of journaling on this layout that I printed on my computer and cut into strips. I also cut Kieran's name in the same font on my QK Silhouette! Now, I have to point out my favourite thing that I did on this page. I used the border stickers to be the ground as the orange things looked like the leaves of veggies poking up through the dirt. I stuck the garden marker with the beet on it into the "ground" and made a little puny comment..."nothing "beets" loving you!" he, he he...I'm really quit proud of myself for coming up with that,lol!

Thanks for stopping by and having a wee look-see!
