'you are so loved'

Hello are all my crafty friends?
I was really honored to win a challenge over at the 'Scraps N' Pieces' blog last month.
It was one of my favourite layouts I've ever created.... you can see it here....
This is what I came up with to Guest Design this month.

'you are so loved'

Here is the beautiful moodboard that they sent me to work with...gorgeous turquoise with gold.
I just realized today that I should have posted this way earlier in the month as the challenge is closed, but even if it's too late to join in this month I hope you'll visit their blog, lots of lovely work to be seen and inspired by and a great challenge every month.


Here are a few close ups....

 I found this photo of my little boy when he was just a few days old;
I thought it fit the theme of 'you are so loved' perfectly.
I created some texture in the background with heavy white gesso through a brick mask,
and then added a Lindy's Stamp Gang Spray called 'TiffanyLou Blue'.

I embossed a bit of chipboard with gold embossing powder and 
added some gold thread and some Prima flowers.

Thanks so much for dropping by!
Have a wonderful weekend...
