Homecoming

It's Black w/ 2!!  How fun is this??? Black w/ blue and yellow.  The moment I read the challenge/recipe I was IN.  I had just finished a challenge using a teal blue and had LOADS of scraps.  So I gathered up my supplies, left over teal blue, "About a Boy" Fancy Pants.  It had this mustardy yellow running thru it.. and it matched fabulously with scraps of "Anthentique's collection: Blissful,  "Prosperity" two sided paper.  So I built up from Swiss Dots Bazzil cardstock, and scrap of black chipboard.  I used my versa mark ink pad with my embossing powders to build up the colors and to edge the chipboard.  My layout was "inspired" by Sketchy Thursdays .  I kept to it this week... wanting it sweet and simple. 
I used my Tim Holtz stamps to create the zig zag stitching and the ruler.  I also used my TH Tiny Tags die. Then I started twisting and rolling my scraps to create the random "branches", that I tied together with some scrap silk died yellow.  I also pulled out my favorites... Stickles and Liquid Pearls to build and enhance. 
This layout is built around pictures of my ds before heading out to pick up his date for his senior homecoming.  Senior??  Oh good grief, I'm not really ready for this am I?  I hope you enjoyed this and thanks for letting my play and share!

OMG this is stunning and I don't even mind the double photos. So much better seeing it this way, love how you have used the distressing poweder around the edge of the photo and zigzagged stitched not too mention the paper rolling to make the embellishments, OK I am gushing now. Awesome, Awesome, Awesome but then I never expect less from you. WOW!!!

This is just gorgeous, Shaunery! Love the shades of the colors you used. Your son looks so handsome. Love the textures and how you added the stitching. All your stamping is just fabulous. Terrific job with the sketch, too!
