The big reveal.....

So I gave you a couple of sneaky peeks of Deanne's layouts that I made for her.

Bless her she visited me on Saturday (VERY hung over.....!!!!) and I was suffering from a right stinking migraine but Deanne and crafting were the therapy that I needed to lift the tension for a few hours. She loved her layouts (well, so she said!) so I can show you the final images now.... da, da, daaaaaaa

I used my fave on this LO - BasicGrey as matting to the photographs and dampened, scrunched up, flattened out, torn and then rolled the edges for the flowers. The leaves are hand cut from white core card and scrunched up then distressed to give a shabby chic kind of look. The cream background card has a lovely acetate from Fancy Pants on it and underneath that there is a little bit of hidden journalling.

The one of Jack is also BasicGrey but this time from their Cupcakes range. I wanted to keep this fairly simple to emphasise the size of that Rollover hot dog that he's eating. I've rolled the journalling round to reflect his lunch!

This was such a challenge to scrap someone else's photographs, as although they say they like your work, they could just be being polite. I loved doing it though.

Right.... on to our next challenge. My turn next and it's going to be a sketch!
