Dad's 60th Birthday!

Hi there fellow scrappers! Here is my first Scrappin Studio post and I’m working with the delightful Elmwood Park and Capture the Flag, Studio Calico’s July’s main kit and add-on kit. Both are simply adorably playful and fun ... they make me think of playgrounds and carnivals in the summer! And gosh those wood veneer tweety birds are to-die-for!

I'm going with a more classic theme with this post as I decided to scrap this photo taken with me dad and brother last December at dad’s 60th birthday. As you can see, at 60 (centre), he is still more fashionable than me and bro together! Ok this pic was actually taken back in December last year but I haven't had the oppurtunity to work on it hehe.
Slightly rustic layout with a touch of cute with the wood veneer tweets. I added emphasis to the photo with some stenciling using distress ink (Tea Dye) and punchinella. (Lace ribbon, sentiment rub-on, cream prima bloom, ink, sticklers and liquid pearls not from kit)

I placed the tweety birds on a piece of paper that came with the graph stamp! *recycling*
Adorable mini envelope from Capture the Flag add-on kit. 
The toothpick flag stickers are so awesome!

The wonder of the SC kits are that they works in many ways, I usually scrap with monotones with max of 3 to 4 colors so it works for me as well! In addition to the gorgeous SC kits, I’m experimenting with my new Sizzix Eclips... I created the layout title and the 2 layered flowers using SC papers and the Decorate Your Life cartridge. Guess what, you can also get the Sizzix Eclips from Scrappin Studio here *wink*

Satmping with the graph texture mini stamp, then alphas cut using Sizzix Eclips. 

Flowers are cut using Sizzix Eclips, distressed and layered and decorated with buttons from Capture the Flag add-on kit. I sneaked in a Prima bloom as the last layer.

Check out these gorgeous kit here! Thanks for dropping by :) Do visit the SS blog for more inspiration from the Design Team :) Have a splendid Sunday folks!

This is an awesome layout Marina! I have missed your amazing works of art! I am so tempted to ask if you would do a special layout for me of my girl. Love all your layering work!
