Today's 6x6 layouts are another double duty ones since they are for Melanie's Blogaversary and PaperCraft Planet's Love Album - the design team theme for the month of January. It was pretty fun working in some Nestability scallop hearts with these cute photos of my kids.
This photo is from last Christmas, taken just before their school Christmas program. They don't look very happy, but they were - they were just giving me their 'serious' smiles. lol! I think my favorite bear of Melanie's is this one from her Jumping for Joy stamp set. He's just so cute!
This photo cracks me up because it really shows how much Ashley LOVES to touch and hug her brother and how much Isaiah likes it! heehee... He actually doesn't mind hugs - but Ashley is VERY touch oriented and loves to snuggle with everyone in our family.
So, this pair of lions and sentiment from Melanie's Cuddles and Hugs stamp set fits her perfectly - she never likes to let go! LOL!
Once again the images were all stamped with Black Versafine ink and clear embossed with detail embossing powder on GinaK's 80lb. Pure Luxury cardstock and colored with Copic markers. For the lion's mane, I added some dark brown flock with my Quickie Glue pen - it's really fuzzy in person.
The nestabilities were all cut from Basic Grey's Cupcake paper and then sanded with Tim Holtz's sanding block to reveal the white core of the paper. I love that shabby look.
Here's the links of all the other gals doing the Melanie blog hop...
Lee, Kim, Theresa, Donna, Lori, Erika , Carolina, Pam and Barb - plus, don't forget Melanie's blog too! She's had some awesome blog candy up for grabs this week, hasn't she?
Have a great day - it's Monday and back to school for the kids. Good luck getting back into the swing of things! By the way, January's Class schedule has been added to Gina's website. I hope to see you at a class of mine this month!
