Twelve. 12.

Have you ever layered a title?  truthfully this was the first time I've done it and I LOVE it!  I wanted to use both of the stickers but I didn't want a teared look.  So I experimented with the layered look instead--I also wanted to use the stamps in the Yes, Please line by Amy Tangerine for American Crafts.  It all fit just the way it was inspired to be!  Of course I used a my silhouette for some shapes and some mist to make some colors pop...all the rest of the rubons, stickers, paper, stamps, and button are from the same line.

I loved that I was able to capture ONE picture of my handsome boy on his birthday, it wasn't the best coloring wise so I changed it to black and white.  I think it looks better!

 Thanks SO much for the visit today!
