Scrap365 April Sketch Challenge #1

Say Cheese!  

Based on a sketch by Lisa Saunders for the April Scrap365 sketch challenge

 - I had hung on to these little snaps of my boys for years, not really very good photos but their little noses look so cute!!!

Anyway, I had a lovely time with lots of cuttin and stickin and inkin and discovered that the Cuttle bug does an EXCELLENT job of squishing beer bottle tops - all KINDS of ideas to try out with those...

The photos weren't brilliant quality and had lots of dark distracting stuff in the background, so I cut around the shape of the boys (really carefully as I'm a bit superstitious about cutting bits of them off!), and then mounted them on plain white card matted on black and just added little marks with a pen.The patterned paper pieces were all hand cut and layered on black card to make them 'pop' out. I used my Cricut for the title letters, which were also layered on black card and shaded with Rangers Distress Inks using a stencil brush. Speech bubbles were cut with the Cricut.

Cute boys! By the way, my brother was named Richard Lee. I just wanted to let you know that I'm locked out of my email account. I got in once and changed my password. 2nd time it wouldn't take my old one or new one either. And two of your YT friends asked me about my Hitler costume! smile!
