Stuck!? Design Team post - Hey Buddy

Welcome back to my blog, where today I'm sharing a layout for
Stuck!? Sketches! 
I like the large amount of white space and the hint of mixed media for this challenge.

I splurged on some new paper for this layout, as I've been good for way too long!
Crate Paper is the brand and it's the "Cool Kid" range.
The little robot is from Crate Paper too - "Rubber accents"
The flairs are from Studio Fourteen40
Love the animal paper from the same range - "Buddy", 
and the enamel arrow from the matching thickers.

In case you can't decipher my writing the journalling reads:-
What a couple of little Scallywags you two are!  
You love life, playing with your twin and getting into mischief if the opportunity arises.  
Love Granny 8th April 2014.

  7. Oh no I don't believe it... typed up my message and then google crashed :/
    So I said I don't know where to start with this layout. That paper is just perfect for your boys, who are just growing up way to fast. You can really see the differences in them now. You nailed the sketch with your perfect blend of CAS and Mixed media. I really seem to have lost my confidence with scrapping at the moment I can't believe how I am struggling. This really packs a punch and I think it is one of my new faves. The colours are glorious. Thanks for the inspiration. I may have to scraplift this one <3

  8. The perfect colour combination for boys. I love your take on Laura's sketch. Love the hints of mixed media.

  9. Aaaaw...this is so cute and gorgeous! Love the fresh and cool colours and the fresh and cool styling too! These 2 young lads are just too cute! ;-)

  10. I love this fun design with the precious photo - what a sweet face! Hugs, Autumn
