Scrapbooking with Colour Combinations..

Hi there Scrapbookers..
I have eventually decided to post the L.O. that I made on Sunday night on Zeffy Scraps on USTREAM.
Each time my friend Elina from Scrapbookers In Greece posts a colour challenge I mean to do it ,but never get to it this week I am very happy to be able to use the colours from challenge #28.
This is our babies' first Spring and I thought I would surround him in lovely that he is still a baby!! We can safely say that this is the spring-time of his life and we will have to wait and see what his future holds......

I used the sketch from Sketches In Thyme Thursday Takes #72. As you can see I substituted the 2nd photo with a die cut hand....
As I said above I made this L.O. live on USTREAM...the papers are Kaisercraft ,Sweet Nothings. I cut out the roses from the sheet of paper called "Dozen Roses" I used the roses off the die-cut sticker sheet and the yellow rose and blue flowers off the rub-on sheet.
My circle is a chipboard lazer-cut from Leaky Shed. I gessoed it and then painted it white,added crackle medium "Clear Rock Candy"...once dry I added a little "Picket Fence" Distress Stain.
Katerina thank you for the "Patetura" Vintage music is so cool!!
The white border at the bottom of the page is also of the sticker sheet I added  little  pearls
Oh yes the die-cut hand and the little Elixer label are both from Pink Paislee "Butterfly Garden"

I must tell you that I was not happy with the L.O. Mr Nino... Today I have misted the background with Mists...I am still not happy...This will be the first time I am going to pull a L.O. apart and add new papers...I will just keep the matting and the metal tag....I welcome some suggestion for improvement....
Have a good week-end...are you doing Tim's lessons?  I could not  make any of the tags today as all three had Picket Fence Distress stain on them.....and I do not have any!!
LOts o' Love.


  1. Hi Zeffy... I cannot understand why you are not happy with the layout of Mr Nino.. it looks beautiful..but i do know what it is like when you have an idea in your head and the layout just did not turn out that way.. The Our Hands layout is stunning.. what perfect papers for this layout.. soft and sweet and very spring like.. love it!!
