Scrapbook Tuesday - U R.....

Hello Friends

Gosh! How did Tuesday get here so quickly?  It does not seem a week since I shared a layout with you!

You may recall that I went on a Playground outing recently and we called by Flutterbys for a little spend - that is what us Girlies like to do.  Well I saw this Bella! Kinda Krafty Papers - Count the Ways paper (NBUS) and could not resist buying it for a layout about my Man!  My favourite line on here is "You are the Laces to My Sneakers, though I could not get a whole line on view with my design.  Never mind ey!

I first  mounted the photo onto Kraft paper, then mounted it again on some dark brown cardstock which was in my Snippets drawer.  I also added some paper turns which are VOS/ancient!

I had a good rummage through my Snippety tin for some embellishments as I knew there was another Cool Dude tab which I made using my Silhouette and I had made the UTEE heart some time ago and knew it would sit nicely on the bottom of the larger “ribbon”. 

I did a little doddling around the “ribbons” to add a little more interest as well as rubbing some gold wax around some areas, having already sprayed the background piece with Cosmic Shimmer before I started. 

The stripey paper is some VOS from Papermania that I must have had several years now.  It is an A5 pad and I believe it was free when I joined Docrafts.

The title UR was made using Grungeboard attached to a miniature tag cut from a Snippet of MME, inked with Antique Linen first before using a TH stamp and Archival ink.

I cut the flourish using a TH die and glitter paper which just happened to be left over from some C projects.  The Rosettes were made for previous projects and were just in the Snippety Tin waiting to be used.  The tab also came out of the Snippety tin and behind it is a tag with a message for Mr Hettie’s eyes only.

The Flags were all cut using my SU punch and the stars were stamped using my Wendy Vecchi stamp.

I took a key and a charm out of my “special lickle fings” box – well, he is worth it!

As this layout is covered with Words I am going to put it into the Our Creative Corner Challenge which this month is Words!  There are some clever folk over there so please do go and have a lookie! 

Of course, this will be going to the Playground too as there are Snippets galore on here.  I shall have a cuddle with Parsnip again too!

That is it from me for now.  I shall hopefully be able to call by and see you later, once my hair has been cut.  Hubby is home tonight so he can kick the server for me!  We are having a few problems with it at the moment, hence my not calling by to see you the last two evenings.  I shall have a pop around lunchtime and hopefully later.

Thanks for calling by and see ya later.

I love that you "doddle" round your ribbons! GREAT layout and such a lot of detail. You ARE clever.

What a lovely LO and you have managed to use that word paper beautifully, it is really difficult to keep the focus on the photo when it is so dominant but your 'flag' pieces draw the eye to your lovely DH straight away.

Well spotted Sarn - doddling round the ribbons :) Super layout Sam and I love the BP you bought on our little outing. So much detail too - it's another perfect layout, for a perfect hubby.

I'm up for a crop in NM - mind you, at 7,000 feet up the air is very thin there so we'd have to get in training by climbing a few mountains in the UK first :)

Parsnip is sitting here very happily watching me typing - he really is huggly cuddly I must say :)

Hugs from Parsnip and Di, xx

Gorgeous layout Sam! The detail on this is amazing, so much beautiful work has gone into it. Miss won't let me cuddle that Parsnip - she reckons my hands are too mucky from having a fisticuffs with the acetate :-(! Karen x

A really fabulous layout... I love the background paper, with all those fabulous words, and I love also that there's a hidden message just for Mr Hettie! Brilliant embellishing, from the banners, to that glossy heart, to those great checked letters UR. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Our Creative Corner.
