My Cousin, My Friend

So this is the Layout I started the other day and have finally found a Title I liked and finished it today. If any one has a stack of unfinished Layouts due to lack of Titles I highly recommend checking out The Perfect Title Site. A good online friend of mine Jacqui pointed me in the direction for the site, So thank you Jacqui x
First of all I got some Texture Paste and mixed with some Urban Brown paint and a Crafter's work Shop stencil Wood Grain I used an old card to spread the paste over the stencil to leave a raised bark effect over the card stock. Think I may need to purchase some of these stencils in the 12x12 format soon lol.
If any of you are Dyan Reaveley fans you will have noticed I used the leaves from the Around the Edge Stamp set Which I coloured using two types green ink sprays. If you haven't heard of Dyan, check her out she is great and has some awesome work on her blog.
And the Mushrooms from the Doodle Parts Stamp set which I coloured with my Promarkers.
It took me a while but I found the perfect title, but I was luck to find some perfect alpha stickers from my stash. The photo on the left is my Eldest Todd with my Niece and then The photo on the right is Oscar my Middle son with my Niece. They were posing for me at Monkey World. :) I matted the photos on to some Pink handmade paper and then stuck down them with 3D foam pads and at the bottom of the photos layered some ribbon and lace before sticking the title down.

This is fantastic! I love all the bright colours and texture. It all just works together so well - the woodgrain effect, the leaves and mushrooms for the border - fab use of those stamps! I'm well lusting after the leaf ones, think am gonna have to indulge! :lol:
