first ice cream cone {CCG challenge 201}

Hi ladies! Hope everyone is doing fantastic! I have a layout of my youngest from a few years ago. Got the cutest photos of him eating his very first ice cream cone! These photos just went perfectly with the current challenge over at ColorComboGalore. If you haven't been there, you should!! They have amazing challenges, and everyone is super nice!! Okay, on to the layout!!

Here is the challenge 201 from CCG:

I also used the current sketch at Sketchy Thursdays (7.21):

Here are some detail shots:

I only used a small amount of the pink, again, trying to not make it too girly. I painted the chipboard white, then lightly edged them with the aqua color. I hand stitched the fabric as a small border to the photos. Used my fiskars border punch on the pink, and my cricut to cut the tag at the bottom. Stamped my leaf on vellum and cut out the image. I didnt want the leaves to be too overwhelming, seeing as they didn't fit the topic. Added my embellishments, and was done! 

I am also entering this into Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday challenge: Buttons!!

  • Colorbok cardstock(white)
  • DCWV SafariKids cardstock(pink)
  • MME Twinkle Twinkle Little Boy paper (teal/brown polka dots)
  • MME Where The Heart Is (brown patterned paper)
  • Vellum (unknown)
