Baby layout and a photo

There are so many things that you can do with the Core'dinations cardstock. It is really fun to play and to see what I can come up with next!!! Here I created a layout with a technique or two. I picked Unscripted Sketches #9 for my inspiration. Gotta love some good inspiration.
When our youngest grandson was born, his big sister was 11 years old and let me tell you she is madly in love with him and him her! I got these cute photos of her kissing him and holding him close.
This close up photo of the one corner of the layout gives you an idea of what my score lines and distressing look like. I used my Scor-Pal tool to create a little border to my background cardstock. Sanding the scored lines let the core show through on this Vintage collection cardstock. The brown colored paper has all of the edges distressed with a Tonic Paper Distresser.
I just had to share a photo of the amazing blackberries that are growing in our backyard. This year is yielding a bumper crop and we are SOOOOO enjoying them.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
