Scrap it with Song - My Little Hero

It's the 'Pops Gals' turn over at Scrap it with a Song this week with David Bowie's Song - Heroes......

............and this is the layout I created using the lyrics as inspiration.
Every day I spend with my grandson Jacob is special, every day I spend with him brings me joy and he truly holds they key to my heart.

When I took these pictures I was thinking of a fun layout about playing at the park, but when I knew I was taking part in this challenge I knew they portrayed (to me) a side of my grandson who has a zest for life, adventure & fun.

I used for this layout:

MME Life Stories Paper - Frequency Grid
Bo Bunny - Chipboard Swirl and frame (around photograph)
Tim Holtz Grungeboard Key and Hinges
K&Co Handmade - Alphas, Flowers and Bird Cage and Bird
PDQ Chipshapes - Rad - Heart
Cuttlebug Folder - Houndstooth
Cosmic Shimmer - Candy Pink/Golden Fish (used on key)
                              - Meadow Lush (Frame around letters)
Basic Grey - Brown Brads
Authentique - Petite Type Square - Peach

I enjoyed putting this layout together (as I do with any layout of my grandson) and look forward to many more.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog.

My Wish - Scrap it with a Song

This is the 1st of 4 June challenges over at Scrap it with a Song this month they are featuring songs chosen by the wonderful Design Team members! First up for the month we have Janet's choice, "My Wish" by Rascall Flatts.

Seeing as we have just had the Queens Diamond Jubilee in the UK I thought I would use I red white and blue background paper.  I usually use a sketch when putting a layout together as it saves time but went 'freehand' this timea and I like what I came up with.

I also kept pretty much with a spotty/circles theme to give it some unity.  I was itching to use some stamps I had recently bought from my favourite craft shop - Papercuts Whitley Bay by Andy Skinner/Personal Impressions - which I chose to use on the kraft border using Tim Holtz Worn Lipstick Distress Inkpad.

The words in the journaling circle show what I wish for my gorgeous grandson Jacob during his life.

I used the following products:

Free paper from Simply homemade (clouds)
Sissix Framelits - Kites
Pentel - Metallic Brush - Blue
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Worn Lipstick & Faded Jeans
Stabilo Bionoic Pen - Black
Sassafras Lass - Sweet Treats - Journaling circle, small wide arrow & sun stickers
Personal Impressions - Andy Skinners - Tempting Textures stamps
Glitz Paper - Kismit - Katy Witt (Dots Background)
Glitz Paper - Kismit - Numbers
K & Company - Handmade Serenity Paper - Kraft Frame
Echo Park - Little Boy - A Little Dirt Never Hurts sticker

Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog.
