Senior - A Scraptown Lady layout

Hello blogging friends!! I hope you all enjoyed your Father's Day. I have a Scraptown Lady layout to share with you today using the Authentique Hope collection and My Favorite Things Die-namic dies. Even though the Hope collection is an Easter collection, I thought it would be perfect to scrap this senior picture of my son. The browns, blues, and cream colors were perfect. I used a sepia tinted photo to keep the brown tones going.

I used the latest sketch from Sketchabilities by Karan Gerber. You have until the end of the month if you want to play along too. I loved the ink rings and splatters. They were perfect for the Practical Scrappers On Trend team post today.

I used a new barbed wire fence Die-namic's die from My Favorite Things. I added a little gesso to my fence to distress it a bit so that it looks more natural. Here is a close up...

I also used the Button Border Die-namic's die from My Favorite Things again. I love this die! I can create my own buttons with boxboard and matching pattern paper. That's right, these dies will cut through boxboard as if it were butter. The boxboard gives the buttons more stability and depth.

Stop by and check out the huge selection of dies, papers, and embellishments available in the Scraptown Lady store.
