into the light details

I love to distress photos, and I use a hardware store style sanding block for all the edges. I then took the corner of the blovk, and used it to scratch-distress the surface of the photo, all around the image of my son. I love how this brings focus onto him, and emphasizes the rough and tumble personality he sometimes exhibits. I have discovered my love for these tiny alphabet font stickers! I am anot abig fan of my own handwriting sometimes, and these are a perfect solution! These are from Carolee's Adorn It, and I have used Pink Paislee, and other manufacturers with just as much success!
This close-up shows my fussy-cut clouds, and the new polka-dotted American Crafts thickers, which coordinated well with my background patterned paper with a faded black and white focus!

Some Recent Layouts!

Whew! This past month has been a whirlwind! I have been able to find some crafting time, but am just now getting to photograph and post some of my layouts! I hope you will leave a comment and also enter my 750 Followers Giveaway!

I really love this layout of my little guy. The photo was an accident, a mistake! But, I loved the fact that the light was not on his face.

I really like this little bird paper, and have been wanting to use it since I purchased it in one of the Me and My Big Ideas stacks. I love all of the colors! I then fussy cut clouds from another piece in this same stack, and added those! I hope you like it! Please comment and leave me your blog address! I would love to visit!
