Inspired by Shimelle's June 4x6 Photo Love :)

Hi Sorry for the blog neglect, it has been a rather hectic week and I have been feeling rather down in the dumps. :(
I have managed to complete this LO based on Shimelle's 4x6 Photo Love June Class unfortunantly I had intended on making this a double LO but after starting on the First side I realised I didn't have the same colour Cardstock for the Backgroud.
Also I ventured off the sketch a bit as I did my borders using Mr Boy "Traffic Jam" (Green side) with circles on which I then punched holes in the middle of each one using my Crop-o-dile and then added Eyelets. I then wove ribbon in and out of the eyelets and stuck them on a wider piece of Mr Boy "Dinomite" Patterned Paper (Red side).
I used this Techneque for both the Top and Bottom borders and love how they turned out despite how fiddly and time consuming they were to do.
I used a Yellow Scolloped border sticker for the bottom of the layout too as it looked a bit to much of an empty space at the bottom with out it. For the blocks I used the Dinosaur part of the Mr Boy " Quadrants" paper.
I used Mr Boy Chipboard "I love you" and " I can sometimes resist temptation, but never mischief" as I felt this fitted my boys and would work better on a layout based on the three of them :)
I think this has got be another favourite layout for me and was nice to have a play with eyelets and my Crop-o-dile that don't really get to come out. :)
