New layout with Feb C2P

This was FUN!!!

The "K" is grungeboard run thru the cuttlebug script pattern, then inked with brown and copper. Metal alpha brads for the "ris" for Kris' name.

I will have to rephotograph this tomorrow in the daylight so you can see the metal strips spell out "and her gentlemen". I printed that out on paper, flipped it and the metal over to emboss it into the metal strips. Cut those from some sheets Vivian sent me ages ago. Smeared a little timber brown Stazon over it, attach with brads. I'll let Kris put the boys name in the journal bottom left, cause I can't tell the twins apart!!!

Sorry for the pic but couldn't wait to post this.

AND most importantly, this is my take on Barbara Faulk's sketch which is this month's challenge so get busy and let us see your take on this sketch. A prize is in store!!!

This is the redo of the photo. Much better, you can actually read the metal strips now.

Just love all those little bare tootsies!!!
