Amazing!

I am pretty amazed at the moment! I have completed a second page this weekend! That is a lot for me. Usually a page can take a week or more. So busy with working full time and a life with kids and a husband that are always moving.

Anyway, this picture of my son was taken over the Christmas break just one of those days sitting around talking and I snapped a picture and I absolutely love this picture. I captures his personality so well. Looking at this makes me realize how truly blessed I am to have this amazing boy in my life:)

I printed the picture in full color and also in black and white and sepia tone. Matted them on white card stock and inked around the edges with brown ink.  The background paper is a printed sheet from Sandylion called One-Of-A- Kind Blue. The border is actually stiffened canvas that I cut the shape out of and mounted to the paper. I then took glitter glue and went all around the inside of the shape. Also, 3 glitter glue dots in each corner. I cut the letters for AMAZING and the flourishes out with the Slice Machine using the Basics 3 cart. I then wrapped The Twinerys Cappuccino twine around the letters. And added a bit of bling to the flourishes. The "as you are" is the Sizzix Scrip dies. The tag is a chipboard circle that I added a bit of glitter glue to cover up green dots (didn't match my colors:) and added a bit to the stars. I inked around the edges with the same brown ink and added a small metal heart charm with a twine bow.
Thanks for looking I really enjoyed making this page for my son.
