Inspired Blueprints Sketch #60- Baby No More

This is the latest sketch from Inspired Blueprints. Have you ever checked out their gallery and blog? Full of talented scrappers there!

And this is my take on it. I badly wanted to dig into Basic Grey's Marjolaine line as it has nice calming tones of blue and strong greens, very suitable for layouts for boys, and I tend to have more pinks and peaches in my stash. The greens in this line were quite dark and strong but I realised that they were a match with the greenery of the photos we took in Australia during our Ocean Road trip, so I scrapped another pic of Asher from our Aussie trip again! I suspect there are a lot more of our vacation pics related layout to be coming.Lol.

Basic Grey produces the prettiest lace cardstock all the time! I just had to cut into mine and use part of it to matt the photo on. To keep the green a little 'toned down', I stuck the cardstock over it so that it doesn't overwhelm the whole layout. As for the circle, I cut it out from another paper and adhered white lace to the border to give it some dimension before I attached the photo and embellishments. I added stickles to the petals of the flowers to 'brighten' the look a little too, and of course a few crystals for a little 'bling'!

A close-up. My usual style of layering the embellishments...Aida said in my DT post that I have a layered style but honestly, I do not know my style also??? If anyone is reading, can you please leave a comment and tell me what my style is? I think I am shabby chic but I like layers and sometimes I go for clean lines too cos' I am a neat freak and I dun like messes.

And a side profile of the layout where you can see the 'layering' better.
And a very very very happy birthday to my favourite LSS, Made With Love! They are 7 this year. May there be many more good years to come! The store is having some fantastic offers in celebration of their 7th birthday, so do head down for a look. (Psst, I have been down almost every week since February.)

Thanks for being with me and have a good weekend!
