'You make me Happy when Skies are Grey'
Layout - 2 Crafty Chipboard

Check out my 3 Christmas Giveaways HERE.

Hi again!  I'm back today with a layout for 2 Crafty Chipboard that you can see up on their blog HERE.  I don't scrapbook my younger son a lot as he is notoriously unphotogenic, 
like me!  I got this shot of him completely by chance when I was clicking away at my 
daughter's graduation, after the event when we were all relaxing on the lawn.

If you view my post from the link above you'll be able to see each chipboard piece I used & how I treated it.  2Crafty have the prettiest titles I've ever seen from a chipboard company.  

I love all the foliage type chipboard 2 Crafty produces, I suppose because
 I am a flower addict & it always matches perfectly with the floral look.  

I don't have a problem using flowers or feminine pieces like doilies on male
 layouts as long as I grunge things up enough for them to look masculine.  

Using up the Glitz giant Glitzers & the flair was part of my destashing program
& I'm so happy to be able to use up my microbeads now that they're back in fashion.

I treated the chipboard in lots of different ways including stamping & sponging,
after I had misted them with Color Bloom sprays, after priming the pieces as usual.

DON'T FORGET TO SUPPORT 2CRAFTY & buy their beautiful designs.
If you can't find any at your local scrap store or where you shop online 
feel free to contact Vanessa at & she
will send you a list of stockists in your area.  If you are in Southern Africa
you can leave me a comment & you can buy 2Crafty Chipboard from me :)
