Jake's turn


I am fortunate to have a hugely supportive extended family on my husband’s side. They all know about my passion for photography and scrapbooking.  I often scrap into the wee hours when we are at the cottage all together.  The kids are genuinely excited to see what I have made in the morning.
Besides my daughter, you will often find my nephew and nieces as the stars of my pages and projects. We do a lot of family activities within each month and thus the cousins enjoy spending time together.  This gives me great opportunities to catch the goings on in photos. My Twilight Beauties layout featured my daughter and nieces.  When it was lucky enough to appear on the Scrapbooks and Cards Today blog my now teenage nephew, God bless him, even left a super sweet comment on the SCT site.  For today's post, I am sharing a layout that I made of him from his tween years.
Supplies:
PP, die cut PP, die cuts (MME), chipboard and fabric letters (Thickers - American Crafts), 11 Ransom mask (Tim Holtz), Glitter mist (Tattered Angels), ribbon (Webster's Pages), buttons (MM), floss (Moulin), jewels (Darice) and pen (Staedtler)
Made from the June 2010 Nook kit featuring MME, it has mist masking and lots of distressing to create a masculine feel out of the papers.

TTFN,

Love the texture of all the shaped paper here. What a cutie pie too. I have a girl-tween here, it can be challenging heh?! But so lovely to see them becoming they're becoming :)
