Just Add Ink - 256

Good evening crafty friends.. 
Tonight I'm happy to share with you a simple styled layout based on the sketch from JAI for their challenge this week.... I'm excited because this is the first challenge layout I've done in a while AND Hunter assisted with this one too! :) 

It's fairly simple, but we had a good time making this fun boys themed layout featuring a photo of him and his big brother (my older son, Lane) walking through a beautiful Forest Boardwalk. 

This is the sketch that we were challenged to use.. As you can see, I used multiple indivial squares to make up the tag shape in the middle.. The big doiley round shape has been changed to this large diecut pattern paper.. That is how it originally came from Kaiser, many many years ago.. This is an OLD collection from my large stash.. lol..  We used some twine at the top to create the ribbon bow from the sketch too.. 

The alpha letters are from Bella.. 
The stencil mask I used with the impasto is from Memory Maze.. 

Something else I wanted to share is how we actually got our base AND squares out of ONLY ONE piece of 12x12 pattern paper.. We cut out everything from the middle of the paper that will be covered by the large round piece.. Simple hey! :)  

Thanks very much for joining me.. Please do drop by the Just Add Ink challenge blog some time to link up your own challenge entries! Cheers, Toni.. xoxo



  1. Toni, this is a gorgeous layout of your boys. The big scalloped piece is fabulous, and I love that you've journalled around the inside of the circle. (I love the name Lane, but couldn't quite get away with giving it to one of my boys!) Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week. :)
