Stuck?! Sketches! DT 1st August - Boy oh Boy

Welome back to my blog today where I'm sharing a DT page for
One of my favourite paper collections is Cocoa Vanilla - "You Rock"
Just the thing for these two Scallywags!
The hessian heart is from Charms Creations.
The journalling is on the back of the page and it reads:-

These pictures were taken at your big cousin's 18th Birthday Party.
We had lunch outside in the sunshine and you both relished the party food.
Although you have quite different personalities, 
you both enjoy playing football and patting the pets.
We stayed late into the evening and enjoyed listening to your cousin and Uncle playing their guitars, while all the rest of us sang along.
A little snippet of everyday life recorded when you were 6 years old.

  1. Oh Helen what a lovely page and you are killing the mixed media background thing. I can't believe your boys are six already seems like just yesterday they were little things. I also can't believe how different they are looking now. It is such a joy to have twins and watch them grow and develope together and so independently. Lovely every day moments recorded for sure.

  2. Beautiful paper & it is a great background for those adorable pictures! Love how you embellish your pages, Helen--that is one beautiful burlap heart! Your journalling is always a treat!

  3. This layout is gorgeous Helen. You always use the perfect amount of embellies & the colours are fabulous. I can't wait to have a crack at this sketch! Xx

  4. Absolutely wonderful take on the sketch!! Love the background .. just gorgeous .. and your two little scallywags are certainly growing up very quickly. Lovely photos and wonderful memories beautifully documented!! hugs xx

  5. Gorgeous page Helen...the black & white photos pop on this beautiful coloured paper. Lovely sketch and you have scrapped it perfectly. TFS! x

  6. Beautiful page Helen. Love the colours, that splash of red and the heart , just lovely. Sounds like a wonderful outing, especially listening to the guitar playing and singing along.

  7. No doubt about it, you create so beautifully with the lovely sketches from Stuck?! and I always enjoy the journalling about the photos too.. what precious memory's you are scrapping.. love this layout.. the Charms Heart looks wonderful on your page too..

  8. What a lovely page Helen and perfect way to remember a happy day. Scallywags indeed - they look like perfect angels!! :o) I love that sketch, the messily colourful background and your perfectly chosen and placed embellies. You make it look so easy Helen, you're an inspiration. I would love to watch you work on a page - have you ever made any process videos?

    1. Thanks for your kind words Annie. I just love this paper collection; so easy to work with. No, I've not made process videos - have thought about it, but not quite sure where to start. Maybe I should be brave like you and try something new!

  9. This page is so amazing, I love the way the black and white pics stand out on this colourful background! Your "scaliwags" are darlin amd your journaling is so precious, the children will love reading it when they are older.

  10. What a fabulous page. I just adore the layered and stitched heart element!! And your mixed media background is divine!! ~ Blessings, Tracey

  11. Such a gorgeous page and so perfect for these little boys! ;-) Love the black and white photo's against all the pops of colour! ;-)

  12. That hessian heart is THE coolest! I love that you are celebrating the "boys will be boys" theme here. They certainly should be - it's why we love them! Big hugs, Autumn
