Angel Babies, Scraps of Darkness Scrapbooking Kit Club

I have another fun layout to share with you today.  I think it is one of my favorites.  The photo is of my 2nd grandson, Cameron, last year on his 5th birthday.  Isn't he a cutie???  I used the SOD November kit "Snow Angels.  It is filled with so many wonderful Bo Bunny and Kaisercraft, Prima, etc., etc., goodies.  I hope you relax, get a cup of cocoa and join me.

The background paper is actually beige with white snowflakes, but it sure photographed differently.  It's Bo Bunny paper from the Main Kit.  I used a Tim Holtz snowflake stamp with brown archival ink and stamped around the page.  I used the irRESISTible white textured spray that comes in the Color Add On.  It leaves a really nice mottled effect.  I also added a few white splatters to emulate snow. 

I cut a strip of Bo Bunny paper from the Main kit about 5 inches wide and adhered it down the center of the layout.  I cut 2 different strips to layer on top.  On the lighter strip I stamped a zig zag stitch.  From that point I started layering papers, tags, die cuts and stickers on each site of the photo. I also used a frame die cut included in the Main Kit to mat the photo.  The stickers come in the Elements Add On.  On each side of the wide strip I glued two large silver snowflakes from my stash to be the center of my flower clusters. 


At the tops of the photo and bottom left side I created some fun flower, snowflake, and holly leaf clusters.  I used the Bo Bunny Snowflake chipboards included in the Main kit; silvery holly leaves from the Elements Add On; Petaloo velvet gold poinsettia from the Creativity Add On.  And last, but definitely the frosting on the cake I used the eyelash trim behind the flowers.  Yummy, yummy!  I also tucked in a few little brown flowers from previous kits. 

I lightly dry brushed gesso around the lo to make it blend together.  The framed sentiment at the bottom right is included in the die cuts from Bo Bunny in the Main Kit. 

Please allow me to extend a very Merry Christmas to you and your families.  I so hope you all have a wonderful Holiday Season!
