Scrap the Boys October challenge

It's been a rough week at our place this past week, so I am just playing catch up now.
I am sure many of you would have already seen the challenge at Scrap the Boys for this month - the theme is "Technology Savvy" (think iPads, phones, X Box, etc). Whilst my boys are both already clearly suckers for technology (they climb up and tap dance on my computer keyboard every time I turn my back), I immediately thought of a photo I had taken of one of them with his dad a while ago...

{Papers and embellishments from the 'Be Different' collection by Fancy Pants}

As you can see, I went with a clean, graphic style for this layout, as I thought it suited the theme better. The Fancy Pants papers I had from Wild About Scrap were perfect for it! Most of the embellishments were from the same range. I added machine stitching for some extra subtle texture & dimension.

I tried SO hard to keep this page clean, but just HAD to add a few flicks of mist at the end...

I hope you get a chance to play along with us this month. (I am sure everyone has at least one "tech" photo of a male in their life these days.) This month there are THREE prizes up for grabs for participants, so definitely worth playing for! :)
