Always U!

I just received my newest kit from Noel Mignon called, "Sweet Sue!" It is such a great are all of her kits! I knew I had to scrap these pics of my 13 year old being his silly self. He loves to pose and act goofy for the camera! I hope he never loses that playful spirit of his! I cut the star and circle using my Cricut and George and Basic Shapes cartridge. I did some inking, distressing, and faux stitching. ( I was waaaaaay too lazy to pull out the sewing machine. I am back at work you know! LOL!)
I love these stickers by Sassafrass and decided to create flowers with them. Yes, flowers....even for a boy's page! They are "masculine" flowers! : ) I cut the "petals" and folded and turned the edges up. I layered them with pop dots for dimension. I adore this star stick pin and stuck it in the middle of my main "masculine" flower! ; )

The stars were punched with my SU! star punch and covered with Distressing Stickles in Shabby Shutters. (One of the many fabby things in this awesome kit!) I inked the edges when they were dry and added rhinestones to their centers.

If you didn't grab a "Sweet Sue" kit yet, get it quick! There are only 13 of them left!

Have a great day! And thanks so much for paying me a visit!!
