{Scrap Factor Week Three}

A huge big thanks to anyone who voted me through this week. I have made through to Week 3.

Please go check out the gallery and take a look at the entries (and don't forget to place your vote for you fave!) This weeks theme is all about song lyrics. Also you can play along and win some goodies (there was no hybrid entries last week :( so why not give hybrid a go!!)

Here's a sneaky peek of my Week 3 layout!
& here is my full size layout from week two, plus the info about it from the UKS gallery.
As soon as I read this weeks challenge I knew what Ad I wanted to use. I saw this advert ages ago in a magazine, and I love it so much I actually had a pic of it on my phone for awhile. But I managed to find the particular magazine!!! And celebrated!

I had downloaded an amazing set of word art from OScraps called 'Everydays Life 2' by Weeds&Wildflowers and Cinza Designs. I layered up one of the phrases on a recent picture of Maxwell. I made a little flag out of a printed wood grain paper by Jennifer Pebbles, wrapped it round a pin and added bling and bakers twine. I then used this picture of him in the garden as the jumping point for creating the misted border. I used a Heidi Swapp mask and a mister huey mist in white. As I had the title 'I love my life because of you' on the photo I wanted to add a monogram to the page. I am a big fan of monograms as embellishments (or use numbers). I had this lovely alphabet from a digital kit designed by Shimelle called Bazinga. I printed this on the same colour cardstock as the background. As the letter was coloured it meant I could introduce the reds/oranges into the layout. I love this woodgrain bunting in Orange from Little Musings -and so simple to create. I cute and inked the edges of the shapes, then glued and folded them over bakers twine. I felt this drew attention to the top of the layout and leading the eye down onto the journaling.

I used the word art in the photo as the starting point for my journalling which reads :- 'I love being your mum. I loving saying that. I love having this as my job. I love having that as my label. I love your caring nature. I love watching you grow. I love your character. I love your cuddles. I love watching you learn. I love you.'The final touch to the layout was to add some red scallops to bring in some more colour and I punched out some butterflies in the same cardstock as the misted background. I attached these with foam squares to the layout to bring in some extra dimension.
