So cute layout

I adore this photo of The Boy - he was aged about 3 years and went through a stage of wanting to wear my glasses - unless they were on my face, nowhere was safe!!!

One of my favourite techniques is one I call rusty chipboard...

It's a combination of inking, distress embossing powder and bronze rub :) it really looks all rusty and old in real life!

Layout recipe:
Stamps: Kaszazz, Stampin' Up!
Card stock & paper: Bazzill, Kaisercraft, 1030 Private Extra (?), Echo Park
Other embellies: coils, safety pins, chipboard cogs, chipboard stars, metal charm, string, washi tape, bottle cap
Dies: circles, banners, alphabet
Inks: distress inks (faded jeans, brushed corduroy), SU chocolate chip
Embossing powder: Distress Embossing Powder (brushed corduroy)
Other: metallic rub, sponges


I have to pack up my makeshift work desk tonight for use by The Boy tomorrow for his speech therapy, but this time tomorrow plan to be up to my armpits in ink and tape!
