Not on the G45 Design Team

Ok so it is official-didn't make the Graphic 45 design team. Disappointed, sad, defeated, relieved (wasn't sure I would be able to fit it all in), the athlete in me who hates to lose was furious. That part was kind of interesting as I hadn't seen the athlete in me raise it's head in quite awhile. OK so I am over it-got a lovely letter from them & some goodies which is also a bonus. Time to move on...
I will post the final projects I sent in a few...but first one of the fun projects I made for ScrapbooksPlus design team.

Clearly this layout is about my sons. Sometimes I am so busy chronicling the obvious events that I forget I really want to remember the people my kids were at certain ages. I started with the paper Mabel "play" as my background & GMisted using various masks. The mat was torn & distressed. I used the quote tag-one of the great things about this line is all the bits & pieces that come with it-as a pocket to hold my journal tag in. The buttons as well as the date of the photos was put on the "pocket". For the tag I used GMist to match the colors of the layout also with a mask & journal stamp. The butterfly comes embossed so I ran a candle stump over it so the embossed portion picked up the wax creating a resist. Again Gmist allows me to match embellishment to the layout colors. The wax resists the GMist letting the design show through. The word/brad is also from the Stella Rose line that sits in the middle of the butterfly.

The title "my boys" is the cool new alphaparts from THoltz's line. They are plastic stickers that can be altered but for this purpose they fit perfectly just as they are. Finally I added some random stamping to "Holtz it up" a bit. The stamps are both from his new line & Tattered Angels & can be ordered through Scrapbooksplus.
