look-alike {SC october product challenge}

hello, scrappy friends!

this month, i'm hosting the october "by the numbers" challenge at scrapbook challenges. my challenge to you is to create a layout, using the following "recipe":
2 pictures
3 punches
4 main colours
5 different papers

here is a little inspiration from me:

i used 2 pictures of baby THEO and grandpa THEO, made last EASTER, when they were wearing the same shirts and almost the same sweaters - hence the title:-)

i thought the PRIMA "reflections" paper line would be PERFECT for this boyish layout. and no girly flowers;-) only the manly rosettes from TIM HOLTZ. 

check my tutorial "how to make a journalling tag from pattern paper" and find out how i created the FAMILY tag from the "scribe" background paper. 

for the rosettes i used tim holtz' "mini paper rosettes" cutting die. the title is written with brown PRIMA marketing alphabet, which i coloured dark brown with copic ciao markers.

for the layers of my triple border i used ek success punch "morocco", PRIMA marketing lace and martha stewart's edge punch "iron gate". 

i added liquid pearls "white opal" to the punched borders:

to summarize - on this layout i used:
2 pictures - from baby THEO and opa THEO
3 punches - EK success, martha stewart and corner rounder
4 main colours - butter cream, maraschino, nightmist and chocolate cream
5 pattern papers - from the AMAZING "reflections" collection {scribe, cyrus, caravan, kashana and talavera}

so, get those scrappy materials and come to play with us at scrapbook challenges.

hugs 'n smiles,
