" Siblings"

Hi everyone and thank you so much 
for stopping by.
Today I am sharing a layout that I did for the challenge site Color,Stories and Inspiration as part of the design team.
This is a photo that was taken at my youngest son, " Wade "at his 21st birthday family dinner.
This is him on the right with his older sister and brother.
Its so hard to get these 3 together for a nice photo.

I distressed down each side of the layout and added a layer from Bo Bunny - Double Dot collection "Chiffon Vintage" . All the fussy cut flowers were inked around the edges with Distress ink.
The ScrapFX title was painted with  ceramcoat paint.

The Case File
The Scheme:  Buttery Yellow, Turquoise, orange, White and Copper Brown.
The Evidence: I used stripes, googly eyes, light bulbs, bows, labels and circles.
The Testimony: I wrote  my journalling on the back of the page. I wrote about the night which was for Wade's 21st.
Some of its personal (sorry) but some of it goes like this.. Happy 21st to my baby Wade. I begged and begged for you to have a party but no, you are not the man to be put in the spotlight. So we had a small family dinner and it turned out to be a funny night. I gave you the traditional socks and jocks, all wrapped separately. Photo time and of course in each photo except the one above, one of you three pulled a stupid face. This seems to be a tradition in our family when having photos taken. I must say on this night your "Siblings " played up more than you did.

I sat with a cuppa and fussy cut out heaps of the flowers to place around the photo. I found the little 
bird in my Kaiser cut outs and added a googly eyes as per the case file.

The background paper Kaisercraft - Paradiso Collection " Sandy Toes"  had so much on it that all I did was add some Gesso with a credit card. Popped some tags from the Kaiser cutouts stash with the date on on of them, 

I use some 2Crafty chicken wire which I inked with Distress ink 
then some random brown embossing powder.
I found these layered butterflies in my stash and they are just perfect for this page.

You can see all the layers in this side photo. I added a key to 
signify Wades 21st. I love the date stamp on the side.
CSI has a library with heaps of items you can print off and use on your layouts.
Here you can see the yellow paper in the layers, this is from the CSI library.

21 for his birthday and some fussy cut out butterflies to go with the 
other layered butterflies.

I felt that the flowers needed some depth to them so I added
some buttery yellow pearl paste to the centre of them all.
Finished the layout off with some Petaloo flowers in the Turquoise.

This is case file 196

Some of the other items I used;
Brown bassill card stock
2Crafty chicken wire chipboard
Petaloo flowers

CSI papers from the library
