MFT - Wednesday Stamp Club

Greetings MFT fans!  I'm here today to bring you my interpretation of this week's sketch!
I've been really jonesing to get back into my original path of scrapbooking.  I started scrapbooking many years ago and then over the years it changed form and eventually led to card making which totally sucked me in!  Love it.  But I have wonderful that I want to use and display and share.  So...back to scrapbooking!  At least making a more concerted effort to include it in my daily creating.  So, without further ado, here is the 8x8 layout I've created using the sketch above:

This is a pic of my delicious, chubby and scrumptious (I'm just a little smitten, no? ;) son when he was a little older than 5 months old.  YUM!!!  He's now almost 6 years old and I've yet to get to his baby book!  So I'm just jumping in!  I followed the sketch..mostly.  I used my MFT Mini Pennants Die-namics and PTI felt to create the pennant flag.  I purposefully angled the flags a bit haphazardly with wonky stitching.  I used the same trick that I showed you HERE to create the long pennant flagpole. 

I picked Claire Keay's Little Loveosaurus stamp set which I stamped, colored with my Copics and then paper pieced.  I placed my sentiment onto bright turquoise cardstock cut using my Bracket Tab Die-namics
What you can't see in the photo is that I coated the Bracket Tab with Versamark Ink (after I stamped my sentiment) and then coated it with clear embossing powder.  I heat set it so that it looks super shiny.  It added a great high gloss effect.  I could have used Glossy Accents but decided to go the embossing powder route instead for this project.

I had a blast mixing and matching my G45, American Crafts and Bazzill papers.  This was a great sketch and a fabulous way to get back into my scrapbooking!!

I hope you have enjoyed and been inspired to come play along with this amazing sketch right HERE!

Big Crafty Hugs!
