Howzat! | Scrap the Boys November Challege

Hi everyone! Here I am with my first design team share for the month of November, and I am kicking off with Scrap the Boys. This month at STB the challenge is SPORTS, so I decided to scrap this gorgeous photo of Hunter with his new cricket bat on Christmas Day. It was the item that was top of his wish list, so to say he was happy was an understatement!


I used a bit of a mash-up of materials for this layout. The background papers are both from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio 'Totally Rad' collection. I added some mixed media using a Dylusions ink spray (applied using a waterbrush) and some stamping using some of my stamps from Viva Las VegaStamps. I also added some small snippets of torn washi tape and some splatters of mist.

The alpha stickers used for my title were also from the Totally Rad collection. (And for all my international friends who may not understand, "howzat" is short for "how's that?" and is a term often used in Australian cricket when appealing to the umpire for the batsman to be given out.)

For the layers under my photo, I used papers from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio 'Tis the Season' collection (to give it that Christmas touch); as well as a paper doily from my stash. Dotted around my page, I also used a few wood veneer pieces from the Tis the Season collection. (This range is currently available from the Cocoa Vanilla store for a massive 40% off!)

To embellish my layout, I used a variety of die cut ephemera pieces, stickers and acetate stars from the Totally Rad range; as well as one of the Cocoa Vanilla Limited Edition flair buttons.

Thanks for stopping by today so I could share this with you. You have until the end of the month to scrap your take on this "Sports" challenge and upload it to the Scrap the Boys blog to be in with a chance of winning a fabulous prize! We are looking forward to seeing all your fabulous sporty layouts!
Til next time, happy scrapping! X
