Star Dad

Hello, Hello, Happy day to you!

A Purple Pumpkin share for you today, using one of my most fav colour combos Navy, White and Red, I just love using this combo on boy layouts... I even love it when Chris wears Red and Navy, it so suits him!

Close ups first... yummy Purple pumpkin, flower, button topper and spotty buttons...


A heart button and lollipop flower too....

I sprayed the paper with water then scrunched the top layer of paper up and "shoved" a spotty button underneath, teamed it with a funky brad and a hand cut star from the pattern paper to create this cute cluster.  I've been doing this a bit lately, it makes the layouts more dimensional which is a bit of problem with storage, but I really love the look so I'm rolling with it!!

and the full layout... Super happy because I even took the photo for this one on a recent trip to Mt Tambourine - it is so nice now that Caitlin is a little older and can actually go for a Rainforest walk.  She is pretty good until the walk back up the hill!!  


and while I had the red and white out, I whipped up this card too....  I have centred a heart button on top of a washi tape flower I made - I've been doing these a bit too lately, they turn out pretty funky!  Sentiment is a SRM sticker layered ontop of some wide gross-grain ribbon and I made an effort to use one of my embossing folders too!



thanks for popping by today and sharing the love!
