Little Man Layout

Good morning fellow scrappers!  Today is a lazy day at the office.  We're prepping for our annual Holiday party so needless to say nobody is really in the mood to work...then again, when are we ever in the mood to work!?  lol  So I found a little time to put up this post that has been sitting in my 'to-do' box for some time.

This is a DT project that I made for Authentique a few weeks back.  We were doing a cross promo between Authentique & UmWow Studio.  So I've used a couple of UmWow's cute little chipboard embellies as well as a few of their flat backed buttons.

This is my son at about 10 months old--he's a 'little man' in the making which is where I got my title from.  I've used papers from Authentique's Seasons: 'Summer' collection. I absolutely loved the bright splashes of turquoise & yellow that come with this collection.
Once again I took some inspiration from one of Emma's sketches found on Page Drafts.  I can't tell you how many times these sketches have saved me a boat load of time.  When in a crunch, I always go to this site & inspiration instantly strikes!
Here you see all three of UmWow's products that I've used.  There's a button from their 'Dream A Little Dream' flair collection & bits from their 'Star Confetti' & 'Layered Arrows' chipboard.  I decided to leave the chippies raw.  You can certainly emboss, paint, glitter etc...the chippies but as it turns out, the raw color of the chipboard coordinated just right with my layout.  So I left them as is.

Those two small yellow ribbon flowers seen here are items from my own stash.  I have several of these in different colors up for grabs in my Etsy shop.  If interested, please feel free to visit my shop here
I'm such a fan of this hot air balloon die from La-La-Land Crafts.  I seem to look for ways to implement it in just about all my pages!

The large honeycomb dies were made with the Spellbinders Hexagon die.
This little pocket that holds a tag with my journaling was made with left over scraps.  I tied a bit of yellow tulle to my tag so that it's a bit easier for me to pull out.
Some clustering filled with chippies, paper, buttons & a gold metal cog. 
These flocked teddy bears is another fave of mine.  I love using them in just about all my pages that have my son as the main subject.  I think that these bitty bears are the perfect embellishment for baby themed pages.
Ok time for a hot cup of coffee I think.  I need an extra pick me up this morning in order to fully function!  Plus somebody brought in some Christmas cookies to share--& cookies ALWAYS taste better with a cup of coffee!  :-)

Thanks for stopping by, stay warm & enjoy the rest of the week!
