Little Angel Layout (Dusty Attic and Scrap The Girls)

Happy Thursday
Its almost the weekend I hope you all have something wonderful planned..

I have popped by today to share with you a layout I have created for the Dusty Attic Mood Board Challenge and the Scrap the Girls Challenge.

Here is my interpretation of the DA's mood board and STG sketch

Little Angel

This little angel is my beautiful niece Talisha

As soon as I saw this mood board I just knew that I wanted to use Pink Paislee's London Market collection that I have had stashed away for ages waiting for the perfect layout to use it on.. the soft vintage feel made me think of this gorgeous photo of my little niece and the combination was perfect.

Dusty Attic products used: Mini Marrakesh Trellis DA0808, Little Angel Title DA0028, Dusty in Colour Sugar Plum DA0908.

 Each month STG has a different challenge sometimes it's a mood board other a sketch like this months challenge.. I felt the sketch would work perfectly with papers and photo I had chosen..

Hello Hello

We had 9 amazing days of fun.... we did classes with 4 amazing teachers... had time to just be creative.... and.... visited some of the most beautiful locations in the South Pacific.

Here is the mask

Smile Layout (not a flower in site)

Hello hello

I have popped by today to share my latest creation.... 

I love my flowers and I don't usually create a page without them and for this reason I really don't scrap Donte enough... so this page is very different for me...

The lovely Tracy Kielty from My 2 Angels was holding a retreat, she was collecting ring pulls from drink cans sold at the retreat to help raise money for mobility equipment for my precious little man. Donte has a very rare brain condition called Holoprosencephaly and also has CP which has affected his ability to walk unassisted. This photo was the one she asked me to use for the flyer... which inspired me to actually use it... 

Donte has such an amazing smile and is cheeky to boot..


This photo was taken at our family splatter paint photo shoot... this was before we got all messy

Some close ups...

Products used:
Prima: Trinkets (Finnabair Mechanicals, Ingvild Bolme Junkyard Findings, Resin), Black White and Clear Gesso, Graphite Texture Paste.
