Halloween Babies | The Flamingo Chronicals: Halloween Babies

Halloween Babies

Good Monday afternoon my blogging friends!
Did you have a great weekend? It was pretty nice here,
my Mom's birthday, and some relaxing time. Nice.

I have been waiting since last week to tell the news,
I am on the new DT at Sketchabilities !! So happy about that, and there
are some familiar faces on the team to work with too.

Today I have a layout I made with the sensational prize pack I got from
Two Peas in A Bucket - it has a whole pack of papers from Echo Park, one
of my favorites, so out came the Halloween photos.

Chillingsworth Manor papers & die cut stickers from Echo Park, Prima, Viva Decor, Leaky Shed Studios, WOW Embossing Powders, Maya Mist, doilys, Tim Holtz die, Queen & Co pearls, Glue Dots, Scotch ATG, and some random things from my stash.
I layered strips of the paper behind the photo, and sewed a few of them down.
I added some sparkle to the circles with Viva Decor's Glitter pen.
Here I used Viva Decor's Pearl Pen, drew out a design, let it set for a couple of minutes, then drew the color out with my paintbrush. The flower is made with a Tim Holtz die, and the brad is Cosmo Cricut.
 The chipboard is from LEaky Shed Studios, and I have heat embossed it with two colors of WOW embossing powders, then added some Shimmerz on top.

Sad to say, this is the only photo of my cuties from that year, I lost an entire rubbermade bucket of photos in a military move years ago, and most of my DD's baby and early year photos were lost :o( Of course, this was way before the digital age!

I used the sketch from Sketches In Thyme for this 
I flipped it 90 degrees to fit my photo.

Have a great week!
