My Beach Boys - a lo for Frosted Designs

This is my 3rd post today. For my post with a lo for Sketches In Thyme, please go HERE! Thanks.

As an opposite to my two previous layouts (this one and this one), which were of a snowy theme, here's a lo with a super summer theme - My Beach Boys. I've made this lo for the new challenge at Frosted Designs, which required to use at least 3 photos (or images, etc.).  We have a wonderful sponsor for this week, One Stop Card Crafts.

For this lo, I took 2 photos of each of my boys, and one larger photo with both of them. I used the Helen Croft's sketch, #40 Scrap a Little:

I only turned it to work with my photo's direction. Again I used printed cs from DCWV "The Guy" stack that I just got (new scrappy goodies...), and the brown strips are leftovers. The big ribbon flower in the middle was made according to Helen's Croft's tutorial, only I topped it with a button. The hearts, the xo and arrow are rub-ons, and I also used some seashells. The ric-rac strip is a die-cut. Here are some close-ups:

I distressed the printed cs' edges and also all the journaling page's edges.

It looks as if I'm back to brown/cream/blue colors...

I'm also entering this lo to the following challenges: really reasonable ribbon (the printed cs are new); gingerloft; secret crafter; creative cottage; pio; crafty sentiments; catch the bug; if the shoe fits; flourishes; craft  your passionpaper issues; papertake weekly; creative inspirations; crafts and me

Thank you for the time you took to visit my blog.

את הדף הזה הכנתי לאתגר ב- Frosted Designs, והפעם - להשתמש לפחות ב-3 תמונות (או חותמות וכיוצ"ב). השתמשתי בסקיצה מאתר של סקיצות מאד מוצלחות (קישור בטקסט באנגלית), ובאותו אתר גם ישנה הדרכה לפרח שעשוי מסרטים. שוב עבדתי עם ניירות מדוגמים של DCWV - חבילת The Guy (מאד מוצלחת! במיוחד אם צריכים צבעים של "בנים"). קצת רבאונים, כפתורים וצדפים מחוף הים. הרצועות החומות הן השאריות מחיתוך קארדסטוקים כדי שיתאימו בגודל לשמרדפים.

תודה על תשומת הלב!

דף מעולה! אני אוהבת להשתמש בהרבה תמונות בדפים שלי. אחרת אני מרגישה קצת "בזבוז"...
תודה על הסקיצה, אשמור לי אותה!
ותגידי לי, איך זה שרק אני מגיבה כאן בעברית?
