Our Son

I made this layout for the Prima Build-a-page May sketch challenge. I can honestly say I've never used so much distress on one page. I basically distressed all the papers. First I ripped the edges with a steel ruler, then I inked them with Tim Holtz distress inks. I also made my own flowers using different size punches and I used many other Prima flowers. I realized I don't own those beautiful new Prima flowers that everyone uses in their layouts. I'm always using the old style flowers. However, these flowers fit my layout perfectly. I really believe I packed this layout to the max!! LOL,  I also managed to splatter ink for the first time on my background page. That was a huge accomplishment for me as I've never done it before. I was always afraid I'd ruin the paper. Here I sprayed the Adirondack red pepper colour by Tim Holtz. It was quite fun doing it, I went way out of my comfort zone. I really like doing these challenges, they help me become not only a better scrapbooker, but really push me out of my shell.
