My Brandon is a feisty, hardheaded, loving, energetic, wonderful child. He has these looks that make you wonder what he is thinking, what is he ready to tackle, what is he scheming? It never fails he makes some of the best pictures, you just get lost in the possibility of what he is thinking. He is really is my sweet Brandon!!
He is yet another layout made from the wonderful August Kit from Birds of a Feather. It is just jam packed with so many goodies, papers, and embellishments I still have some left!! I did lots of layers here, layering in all the different patterned papers from the kit, chalkboard cards, and a few fun embellishments.

Here I took strips of papers from the end of the 12x12 sheets it the kit (the end with the bar code on them) and layered them on the left side of the layout in various lengths and added in bits of the sparkly trim, burlap from July's Kit, some stamps from Susan K. Weckesser saying "Celebrate the Simple Things" and "Don't go through life, Grow though life", sequins, grey enamel dots and the little camera sticker from the May Kit.
You can see more of the Susan K. Weckesser stamps saying "Create your day" and "Don't go through life, Grow though life" from the stamp set above along with her stencil. I used some new Graphite paste from Prima with Susan K. Weckesser zigzag stencil going vertically and also the dots along the bottom edge of the layout. You can also see a little cutout from the May kit, the colors matched perfectly!!
Here you can also see some more Susan K. Weckesser Stamps and stencils in the zigzag and now in the line of "x" in the same graphite paste. Here you can also see another little cutout from the May kit along with some more torn paper just below the picture. To learn how to tear paper, please see my tutorial on the Art of Tearing Paper.
