A couple more Scrap That! Layouts ~

Hi, scrappers! I'm back today with details on a couple more of my Scrap That! August kit projects. 

I was itching to do a round layout this time! I am always  inspired by Helena Johansson's work and she does lots of beautiful round pages. The die cut paper behind my layout is a very old paper from my stash made by Creative Imaginations. I thought it made a pretty border. 

I split the large Zva flower (FAO) in half to use on either side of the photo after painting it (yes, painted it!) to match my paper. You will also note the lovely Kaisercraft crochet doilies from the EAO that I've layered and used as flowers with brads from the MK as flower centers. I sneaked in another Dusty Attic piece from my stash (Scroll Border #2) and adorned it with the blue decorative stone from the MK after sponging some Adirondack Salmon paint over my chippy. It is finished with lots of Gesso to give it a whitewashed look. I love how it spills over the page. I also dabbed some gesso around the outer edge of the layout on the Kaisercraft paper. 

Here's a close-up: 

And next we have little Bobby! 

"Bobby" (LO using MK, EAO and FAO)

This is the other twin grandson, Bobby.  He is the cuddle-bug! He has dark hair and eyes and look at that adorable face! Again, I've gone flower crazy but Grandpa says it's okay  .. he is a baby after all. Whew! Seriously, I had tons of fun putting this page together! This was the last project I did and I literally finished off the flowers! 

The tulle and cheesecloth worked great on this page. I was overjoyed to see them in our kit this time! This time, I wrapped the tulle around the photo and then placed a couple of flowers over the knot. I've added the Petaloo Chipboard Frame (EAO) behind my photo, then topped it with cheesecloth and flowers. The yummy green Prima flowers are from FAO and the white and peach (originally white) are from the main kit.

 Again, I've used my MS Floral Vine punch. And the little sprig of white leaves? I made them for the June Reveal and lost them before I had a chance to use them. I was pleasantly surprised to find them hiding in a drawer. Sorry about the shadows on my layout but I had to take this photo outside late in the evening. Anyway, here's a little close-up.

I think that's it for today. I am busily working on more Scrap That! projects although I am taking the month of August off at Stuck on U Sketches  (except for the card challenges) ...  so that I can get some home projects done. Meanwhile you can see what the other designers have done by going HERE. Last weeks sketch was dynamite! And this week's Die Cut challenge is Wow! 

Thanks for coming by! Hope you have a great weekend!
