Just Chilling

Here's my cheeky boy, looking all chilled out, watching TV in his sister's chair, and melting my heart with his cuteness:


Supplies: American Crafts White Cardstock, Studio Calico Classic Calico 2 'Numerical' Paper, Crate Paper Sleigh Ride 6x6 Pad, Pink Paislee Portfolio Alphas, Simple Stories Sn@P Alphas, Stamps from Pink Paislee, American Crafts, and Banana Frog, Mister Huey 'Clay' Mist, Gems from Papermania and Hero Arts, 3D Foam Dots, Black Ink Pad, Sewing Machine and White Thread.

I love catching moments like this, as I know they're the ones I'm going to love looking back at in years to come. Plus I adore stripy clothes on my kiddies, so this babygrow is one of my favourites!

I added the heart detail surrounded by gems and pearls, to show how the moment captured my heart. I placed it up where his eyes are looking towards so he's not looking up at an empty space, and the arrows are stamped around the edge to bring the attention back down to his face:


The papers are stitched on with a zig-zag stitch to soften the edges, and I stamped some bunting to write my journaling on top of:


Finally I kept the title sweet and relaxed like the photo:


Have you captured any chilled out moments on your layouts lately? It makes me feel at peace just looking at this page, which is something I need right now, to calm me down in between the frantic preparations for Christmas. I've still got so many cards to write and presents to buy!

Finally - I'm still waiting to hear from NikkiD to claim her Frosty Festivities prizes. If anyone knows a way to contact her please can you let her know? If I haven't heard from her by next Thursday (13th December) then I shall re-draw the prize!

Bye for now, x

I am in love with that washi tape. I have never seen the Christmas stapmed looking one over here...Is it MME or TIm Holtz or??? I want to track it down! I am on a stop buying all comsumables (except glue and cardstock) for 2013. Exceptions are Gift money and the 4 scrapbook garage sales each summer at the LSS in my town. Some of that money is going to be earmarked for that tape!!!
