Mandy Schiller Scrap Challenge #2

Well, I am really just getting this in by the skin of my teeth. Mandy set another layout scrap challenge this month. Like with Mandy's example, I too turned the sketch around. This is the first page I have scrapped of my son Kyan and I'm really happy with how it turned out, although my camera's batteries were going flat as I took the picture so it looks very grainy. I'll try and take another photo tomorrow and swap it on here, but to make the deadline, this will have to do. So here is the layout we were to use and my attempt at the challenge.

Edit: I'm back and I've changed the photo's. My batteries still need charging, but at least these pics in daylight are a bit better :)

For my page, I have used a piece of textured Not Quite Navy card stock layered up with a square of DSP from Summer Picnic. I also used Old Olive, Not Quite Navy and Chocolate Chip card stock, Chocolate Chip ink on some cardboard letters and a white rub on for the word "and". I've also done some paper piercing around the circle and faux stitched with a white gel pen and paper piercing on the scallop edge and Chocolate Chip strips although this is hard to see in this photo. The buttons believe it or not come off an old skirt of mine which I have donated to my husbands rag pile but not without pinching the buttons first. These are finished off with some hemp twine. Well that is about it and although there isn't a lot of detail on this page, I feel the photos do all the talking. Thanks for looking.
