Guest Designer at Scrap Africa

Hi and welcome to my blog....yes, I said Africa.... it sure is a long way from New Brunswick !!!
I was totally honored and very surprised when I received an emailed asking me to be part of this week's challenge. The challenge is to create a project dedicated to the boys/men in our lives.
I chose to make 2 layouts ,one for each of my little dudes.
Scrap Africa blog can be seen HERE !!! Go have a look around, they have amazing talent on this site !!! Thanks again ladies for having me as a guest :)

First up, Mr Gabriel !!
He's the funny one in the family and I really do think he is Simply Amazing!!

                                Beach Fun
Supplies for this layout are from the Macho-Nacho Soup from Jillibean Soup .
 I created the "Sunburst" behind the title block by hand cutting a few of the neckties and adhering them in a semi circle on dark brown cardstock and trimming the edges .

 Gabriel often says "this was the best day ever" so I had to include this sticker to my layout.

an other close up :)

And now for Mr Felix, well just look at that face !!! Never a dull moments with this one !!

                Hello ,my name is Felix ....I'm Awesome
Hope he never walks up to someone and says this !!! I think  he's confidant enough to do it !! I'll have to keep an eye on this handsome devil :)

Supplies for this layout are from Simple Stories - Awesome collection and created it with a sketch from Kristine from Creative Scrapper.

Thank you so much for visiting me today ( maybe some of you all the way from Africa) !
Hope you'll come back soon, I have lots more to share in the next few days :)
Happy crafting :)
