"My Favorite Author"

Another Layout completed - "My favorite Author" this was taken back in 2012 when Tony Park visited the Chermside Library - I absolutely love his books and he was a treat to listen to, has some wonderful stories of his foray's into Africa, (he at that time had a home in Africa and one in Sydney - not sure if he still does) and was very friendly and gracious when I wanted to meet him and get a photo with him.  I tried to figure out how I could add the flyer to the layout for safekeeping, and even though I wasn't thrilled about folding it like I did, I ended up putting it on the back of a journal tag that slides behind the photo just so I could keep it with the layout.  (P.S - using American Spelling for my grandkids, LOL!)  
The products that I used were the "This And That" collection of papers, tags, stickers (very little used - mostly just stamping)
Aldi - Mini Stamp Set for "Read More" on background
Hero Arts "Friendly Flags" stamp set for my arrows
Stamping Bella by Vicki Boutin "In so many words" stamp set

Me & My Daddy - Mixed Media layout

A layout I just finished of my son and my Granddaughter Claire.  I used scraps from my stash and fussy cut some pieces including the zigzag border and the gears, some doodling with a white gel pen, A stencil with a Zig embossing pen and white embossing powder.  The lettering was done with my Sizzlits Alphabet set, and I added paint splatters with some Acrylic paint.
