Layout with Attitude

Finally I have managed to get all of my eldest son's new uniform sorted... yesterday was shoes and shin pads and being a non-footballing family I was a little stunned at the price of a piece of polystyrene to protect an already mottled shin!!

Anyway onto my latest layout where he and his younger brother are chillin' on top of a climbing frame. The photo isn't the greatest quality but it just sums up my boys, just a smirk never a full smile, they really don't do cute in my house lol. I wanted the layout to have a grungy feel with a little attitude so I've distressed lots of paper, ripped it and inked quite heavily around the edges. Probably one of my favourites to date, it really did turn out how I'd imagined it and that rarely happens!!!

Materials: Bazzill cardstock and The Edge in black ric-rak, BoBunny Extreme papers, Heidi Swapp fuzzy rub-ons and flame foam stamps, Making Memories skull rub-on and brads, AL Stylin' stamp and various chipboard shapes.

Until next time xxx
