'Hangin' with my crew' with Simple Stories Say Cheese III by Kerryn Fry

Good morning everyone!
Welcome to the AAS blog on this chilly Friday morning.

The start of a new month brings some different collections for me to showcase.

My first layout features Simple Stories Say Cheese III collection and as you can see 
I am back to my masculine theme, my comfort zone :)
A great photo of Master 12 with one of his baseball club's american imports, a great teacher.

Here are a few close ups of the page.
2 Crafty Chevron Bits have been painted with Black Distress Paint and elevated using foam tape.
I have also used foam tape on a number of the embellishments to give the page some dimension.
The Simple Stories Say Cheese III Bits & Pieces were a great source for each cluster

I have used some stars from the 2 Crafty Star Pack to coordinate with the collection, they have been painted using Distress Paint and then I have added patterned paper to the larger stars.

I have left the background quite plain on this page, but I have doodled using black gel pen 
around the edges and added some faux stitching to a few areas.
There are a few staples added in a few places.

Thought I would share a bonus page that I did during school holidays.
I am still making good use of the fabulous school collection Photo Play Real Genius
The photos were taken from Master 12's last day at school for 2016.

You Basically Rule

I had a ball playing with this background.
Deliberately picked school based templates for the patterns.
I have cut the pencils out from Photo Play Real Genius 3x4 Cards and 
propped them up with foam tape. 

The 2 Crafty Stars were painted with Aged Mahogany Distress Paint and 
stamped using Gold Brilliance Ink and Kaisercraft Grid Stamp.

That's it from me today.
I hope you have been inspired to hit your craft desk this weekend.
Have fun and stay warm.
