Poor Little Man

Today it is my turn to update the Purple Pumpkin blog. here is my post:

Look at that little face - doesn't it just break your heart? The tradgedy this time was that someone had finished off the last slice of cake and Benji was just distraught! I couldn't resist snapping a couple of photos of his 'sad' face before scooping him up for a big cuddle (and a bowl of ice-cream to make up lol).
I based my page on this really cool sketch over at 'Sketches with a twist'. The twist is to use stars somewhere on your page. I have a border of stars on the paper next to my top photo


Anyway, these gorgeous Pink Paislee (Portfolio) papers and the equally gorgeous collection from Heidi Swapp were a perfect match for Benji's t-shirt. I love the combination of teal, yellow and black for 'boy' pages! I used a couple of masks to ink my background page before arranging a collage of paper pieces, journaling cards and tags to mat my photos. The Heide Swapp polaroid frame was a great place to house my title and journaling.
Now for the purple Pumpkin goodies. The cup cake button was perfect to emphasise the reason for my little man's tears. The teal tickets were also a perfect match for the colours in my papers and photos. I used them as a border under one of my photos and as a single accent next to the other.

A little machine stitching finished off the page. Oh and check out that music note washi tape and the bakers twine attached to my tags - both from Purple Pumpkin!
Hope you are having a great week - with lots of time for crafting
