Lucky - Love My Tapes & LCOM

This is my last page as a member of the sketch team over at Let's Capture These Sketches. They have been a great bunch to work with. If you've ever been tempted to apply for a sketch challenge blog, watch for their next call (should be soon) - and apply!

This layout features lots of great fabric and lace from Love My Tapes. The newsprint canvas is from one of their self-adhesive fabric sheets - so easy to use! (These grungeboard letters were misted with Glimmer Mist - "Partridge in a Pear Tree" and "Forest Green").

I die-cut these gears from one of their faux suede fabric sheets. I just love the texture of these. The self-adhesive sheets work great with my sizzix dies.

No reason why you can't use lace on a 'boy' page (this is the 12mm brown lace tape). Smaller scale and more boyish colours make it work. The checked pattern is one of the fabric tapes. (The stitching was just for looks - the lace and fabric tapes are all self-adhesive).

For this tag I used a bunch of 'leftover' letters. I coated the entire tag with gesso, then gave it a generous dose of Glimmer Mist in "Partridge in a Pear Tree" and "Tattered Leather". It created a grungy look perfect for 'boy pages'.

And of course, the story as to why he was so lucky. I'm sure you can guess what the restaurant was, based on the drink cups. (For the record, mommy despises this 'restaurant').
