Busy Doing Absolutely Nothing layout by Rachel Lowe:

Happy Monday everyone!

Anyone who knows me will tell you yellow once upon a time was my least favourite colour to scrap.
 and I avoided it!

Recently however I seem to use yellow all the time and this layout I have used the yellow striped paper as my base paper as I knew it would make everything else I used pop!

I just love this cheeky photo of my youngest, ah that smile!

I have cut circles different sizes using the gorgeous blue cross paper.

I then attached them in a diagonal manner.

I then have sewn in a messy fashion over the circles to add texture.

Now here is the fun part, choosing your embellishments to place on the paper circles. The sticker sheet has a great collection of boy themed elements. There were many left over, so depending on your photo and the age of your child you could vary what stickers you attach. I have also used a Flutterby flair which I think finishes the embellishment placement off beautifully!

I then cut my photo down to a 4x4 inch square and cut my chosen paper so it looks like a polaroid frame. I have sewn on the paper picture frame to add more texture.

As you can see I have placed my chosen stickers some off centre and some with foam tape to add visual interest and height. In keeping with this theme I have also done the same with my matted photo, attaching it off centre and on an angle.

I love the 2crafty word title 'busy doing nothing', toddlers seem to have such fun busily doing everything and nothing!

I have inked my chipboard title in black and placed again on an angle to keep it fun.

This is a bright and fun layout perfect for little boys.

Thank you for taking time to have a look and have a great day with little scrapping time!
