Blowing Raspberries

Hi Peoples!
I have a layout to share with you today of my favourite lil man! Chloe has heaps of pages and feel like I need to play catch-ups with Jayce.

The subject of the page is pretty obvious, Jayce learnt how to blow raspberries! And has become a favourite past time of his, especially when he starts getting cranky.
Just for something new and different... I have used a sketch!

This sketch is from the newish Boy Meets Girl Scrapbook Challenge Blog. The blog provides two challenges each month, one for scrapbooking boys and one for scrapbooking girls. Now that I have one of each this is a great challenge blog for me! 
Once I saw this sketch I knew instantly I had to use it! Can be found here. I love that everything is at an angle but still square!!

I tried to go back to the basics, good old paper and glue, with this layout and what better range then to use Pebbles Basics. I split the page into four different colour sections using the same patterns in each colour and only matching colour embellishments. The only exception is the title which is the awesome transparent alphas fro Amy Tan.

As it turns out, seems I can't just keep it basic anymore and had to splat some paint all over the place.
Although I love everything being at an angle I just couldn't resist added a piece of flair and making it the only straight thing on the page.
Once everything was stuck down it still didn't feel finished so I got my journalling pen and doodled around everything while on the phone.

The top corner looked a lil bare, add some twirled twine. Problem solved. Although when I first went to take pictures of this layout the wind picked up, moving my twine and it hasn't looked right since =(

Hope you like it and every one has a fantastic Christmas and wonderful New Year!
I look forward to focusing more on my crafting in 2014 as during this busy few months I have really missed it and realized have much it means to me (and helps keeps me sane =P )
