All boy

I think this is one of my favourite pages with the Simple Stories Awesome papers from ATDML (gosh that was a sentence!).  I still really like the sunburst effect (to the extent that I have a couple more of this style of page lined up for you too).  I work out the size of my rectangle on a piece of scrap paper and then use it as a template for my patterned papers.  For this one I stitched around the edges and then layered up one of the 4 by 6 papers (says Today down the side), a journal tab and bingo card.  I was also very thrifty as I removed some of the paper that wouldn't be seen behind the photo and then used my ek success punch to make a pulled out book page style thing.

We got given a whole sheet of the stickers from this range, I have really enjoyed using them, and it's definitely something I will look out for in the future.  I added a small sticker banner at the top of the page, some stars, a bit of a sticker strip of stars and cogs and a little 'rock' banner.  I also added some Tando chipboard stars which I left their natural grey and then added some silver stickles to.  I punched out some little stars from sticker sheet too and stuck those on, the alpha is are some chocolate thickets and I added a few splashes of brown cosmic shimmer mist. 

The photo is an old one when we went to Kilve beach and tho it was a windy and wet day I really like the photos and the light, as well as all those pebbles/rocks in the background.  If you want to see more Simple Stories pages then the DT gallery is here.
