Old photos of my 2 older boys

While I was continuing my spring clean yesterday I found some old school photo's of my big 2 boys and as they were so cute I couldn't have them hidden away again so today I scrapped some of them. This first one I am not quite happy with it it feels as if it needs something else but I am not sure what so please please help me out here :)

My Best Friend

This one I left quite simple as the cardstock I used was embellished around the edges. I used my sewing machine to make the paper pieces into a "quilt" and sewed on my title. I am debating sewing around the photo too but am leaving it as it is for now.

The last one is actually the first one I did and is for the April week 4 weekly challenge on UKScrappers. The challenge was quite involved this week we had to;

Use black and/or white
Use metal
Use 11 of something
Use ribbon
Use something miraculous or wonderful

I used Cosmo Cricket Lil Man pp, thickers, and ribbons from my stash. I made the "cogs" using grungeboard coloured with Fibre Scraps EZ Tintz in tea stain which I then heat embossed using a versamark pad and Personal impressions Turquoise sparkle powder which gave them the rusty look. The black metal brackets are Dingbrads by Around the Block.

  1. Love them all! For the first one - maybe a title - vertical on the right hand side - just saying "brothers" or similar? Saying that - I like it just as it is :)
