Be your Own

My Brandon is a feisty, hardheaded, loving, energetic, wonderful child.  He has these looks that make you wonder what he is thinking, what is he ready to tackle, what is he scheming?  It never fails he makes some of the best pictures, you just get lost in the possibility of what he is thinking.  He is really is my sweet Brandon!!


I did lots of layers here, layering in all the different patterned papers from the kit, chalkboard cards, and a few fun embellishments.
 


Here I took strips of papers from the end of the 12x12 sheets (the end with the bar code on them) and layered them on the left side of the layout in various lengths and added in bits of the sparkly trim, burlap, some stamps from Susan K. Weckesser saying "Celebrate the Simple Things" and "Don't go through life, Grow though life", sequins, grey enamel dots and the little camera sticker.

You can see more of the Susan K. Weckesser stamps saying "Create your day" and "Don't go through life, Grow though life" from the stamp set above along with her stencil.  I used some new Graphite paste from Prima with Susan K. Weckesser zigzag stencil going vertically and also the dots along the bottom edge of the layout.
