This makes me ridiculously happy!

For the June 15 challenge at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge I created this layout about my two sons, using a photo from more than 8 years ago! How time flies!

I love everything about this photo (except that it's so dark), see that look on Timothy's face and look at those hands ...  Tim was so in love with his baby brother!

I mainly used the Dear Lizzy/American Crafts "Neapolitan" collection for this page. Such an awesome collection!!

And some close-ups:

Supplies: Dear Lizzy/American Crafts "Neapolitan": patterned papers, chipboard shapes, accent & phrase stickers; Amy Tangerine/American Crafts "Yes, Please": flair and adhesive pocket; Pebbles: layered paper flower; Studio Calico: wood veneer; Bazzill Basics: cardstock. Tools: Silhouette Cameo, Martha Stewart border punch (birds), Dymo tool.

And the start of the page was this sketch:

If you want to see the awesome job the other designers did with this sketch, then hop on over to AFSC's blog! and .... why not play along?!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I really appreciated your visits!


  1. Ja, die foto is natuurlijk onbetaalbaar, zo lief!
    Knap dat jij van deze schets deze supermooie LO hebt weten te maken. Vind hem echt erg erg mooi!
    Jouw Silhouette komt goed van pas, hè? Bij mij ook, maar ik merk toch dat veel designs gemaakt zijn voor lay-outs.

  2. wow! beautiful! I love the birds on a wire above your photo!

  3. What a sweet photo!! Love the misting/masking in the background Monique, and the pop of Yellow for your title!

  4. Monique, this layout is so pretty. I can imagine why this photo of your boys can still make you feel weak in the knees after all the years. Such a lovely moment captured.

  5. Such a precious page, Monique! I love the beautiful, misted background and all of the little bits you worked around the page.

  6. Love how you used the Dymo tool! Beautiful.

  7. Wat een heerlijke foto om te scrappen...ik vind het best een moeilijke schets maar jij hebt er een geweldige layout mee gemaakt! En wat schattig zijn die 'pons' vogeltjes!!

  8. The masking, the bits, the colors and layering are just gorgeous!!
