Lunch with Godzilla
I completely forgot to post this layout! Here's another one I did with the June kit from Crazy Daisy Kits. These pictures of my son are just so typical, I couldn't wait to scrap them. He loves his grilled cheese, and he loves his monster toys. :)
Pictures of a big monster needed a big title, so the corrugated letters in the kit were ideal. I inked them with Distress Ink in "Peeled Paint" and "Brushed Corduroy". Then I stapled them to the layout, because staples are just so perfect with kraft coloured cardstock.
I used a little StazOn ink in brown, to grunge up the buttons, as I wanted a more 'dirty' look for this page. I also cut out one of the captions from the printed note papers, and glued it to the fabric tag.
I had fun with a new border punch on this layout - it's supposed to make an edge like a postage stamp. If you aren't going for a postage stamp look, though, you'd never know - it's just an interesting edge, and a lot less girly than most - perfect for 'boy pages'. I also kept some of the punched bits, and used them as little accents around the page.
And if you look close, I took some of the scraps leftover from the fabric piece (after making my flowers for another LO), and tucked them in a couple of spots. Why waste those cute little triangles?
