Yep - another "Brothers" LO from me.. It's kinda hard when you have 3 boys to avoid them LOL I *think* I've scrapped a smaller version of this photo - but I love it soooo much, and this larger version was sitting in my cupboard calling to be used ;) And then when the Second CT challenge was put up on Red Earth Scrapping and it had a sketch with a larger photo on it and it really suited the sketch.. so how could I resist??? LOL

The details of the CT comp second round are HERE. Due to circumstances it's no long part of the CT application process, but more a 'just for fun' challenge ;)

challenge requirements:
* Use the sketch PROVIDED

* handmade or hand cut element/s or embellishment/s

* ribbon - any size, any amount, any where (lace/ricrac/trim also ok)

* journalling - more than just the date, give us a few more details - can be anywhere on the page or hidden etc

* something RED on the page - as big or small as you like


I really like how this came together in the end.. I was up at 11pm painting backgrounds but this morning decided I didn't like it so started again hahaha A bit of glimmer mist here and there on the background to liven it up and I was away in the end :)

I ADORE this photo I took of William and Domenik. Dommy would have been around 12 weeks old and loved to bable - this is exactly what he is doing here with Wil.

I've created a little quote box in the embie cluster from a slide projector surround. the quote in it is "a brother is a friend given by nature" ~Jean Baptiste Legouve. The little bird stick pin is also my creation (I love playing with sculpy!!!) I'm addicted to lace at the moment and love that it can be used on masculine LO's as well as femanine!! I've also got some brown vintage ribbon on the LO as well.

There are flashes of red in the fussy cut border between the layers of lace under the photo as well as in the Jenny Bowlin stick pin above the photo and the paper lace ribbon as well. Papers used are from Crate Paper Restoration range, paper doilies and some corrugated card that I rescued from the recycle bin (the sort used for packing between plates etc when new/boxed)

The journalling reads (in case it's hard to decipher) "William, I don't know why we worried about how you would cope not being the baby anymore. Everyone could see how much you loved Domenik and your new role"
