My Boys, Always

Hello and Happy Thursday!  I've been a bad blogger, we've been super busy but I finally found some time to scrap :)  Of course I combined some challenges, this week I combined the CSI Case Challenge #81 (LOVE the colours this week!) with the Studio Calico Sunday Sketch Challenge.  Very satisfied with how it came out :)

I used some water colour paper as my background and flipped the Placement Circles (Pink Paisley) over and used them as a template to paint some imperfect circles with my water colours.

I placed part of my title on the clear packing the Basic Grey foam letters came in, cut a banner out of the paper bag the kit came and splatter both with colours.  I really love this technique as I customize almost any accent to colour co-ordinate with my project :)

I then began layering and used part of the packaging from the Picture Perfect diecuts from Basic Grey (I was obsessed with the packaging from this kit) 

I layered some more :)

Close ups of some of the embellies ::) 

The finished Layout :) 

With the exception of the water colours and the Dymo Label Everything either came from the Studio Calico Valley High Kit or the Studio Calico Molly Kit

Thanks for stopping by!
