Hurrah! I finally got some scrapbooking done yesterday. It took all day of leaving it and going back to it till I was sure I was happy with it but I got there in the end!
I wanted bright colours to match his pile of toys and chose the blue to tone it all down a bit! The bright circles paper is from a summer DCWV box from QVC that I've had for a bit and not used that much! The blue spotty is K&Company from sparkly sweet collection pad and the dark blue is cardstock from the DCWV set. I cut the blue and blue spotty in half and stuck onto a plain white sheet of 12x12 (I use the inserts the scrapbooks come with to save £). It save's wasting half of each side and the bits left will help with the double page spread I eventually want it to be part of! I then edged everywhere with pearlescent sky blue. The peek-a-boo was from K&Company Sweet pea baby boy vellum quotes book and in a pale brown. I went over it with a pro marker in Indigo Blue to match my page then used four blue docraft brads from an essential brights pack to hold it all together. The ribbon is a celebrate ribbon from hobbycraft and the heart embelishment was made by me with my silhouette! I coloured it with the blue inkpad and then just traced it onto the back of the spotty paper and cut out and added it with foam. Used my Tim Holtz vintage die for the lacy border in a pale blue cardstock and stuck this down with wet glue and it was completed....now time for me to go make the second page with all the left over bits of paper!
