#cool #boy {creative embellishments & MME}

hello everybody!

i just came up with a brand new product combination - CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS & MY MIND'S EYE - doesn't it sounds like a lot of FUN?! and indeed - it is! 

here is what i created using products from these two amazing companies - 


when i went to BULGARIA - my home country - this summer i had booked a professional photo shoot for my kids. i mean, we all take pictures of our babies and i love doing it, but i really like to have professional pics as well.

so, i took my two monkeys and their little cousin to the studio and we had three hours of dressing up and a lot of fun! the end result - over 60 perfect pictures, which you will see in most of my layouts!

this one is with THEO - he wasn't posing, he was just laying tired on the floor, but i LOVE it!

the papers i used on this project are from MY MIND'S EYE lost and found portobello road collection. i know it is a bit old paper line, but i really like all the glittery papers and amazing colours in it.

to alter my chipboard pieces i used VERSAMARK ink and SPARKLE N SPRINKLE embossing powders.
for my title i used one of my favorite CE sets social hash tags – there are so many wonderful words to choose from! i decided to go with #COOL and #BOY - there is actually only #BOYS in the set, but you can easily remove the S.
i covered the chippies with white distress enamel first and then with SNS cappuccino [EP422] embossing powder.

then i used one of the newest additions in the rubber stamps range – the paint splat trio stamp – with blue ink to alter the background paper.

 to gather the different stars sizes i combined two chipboard sets – falling star border for the smaller ones …

 ... and stars frame set for the larger ones. i altered the chippies with SNS mediterranean star [EP429] embossing powder.

i also added an extra chipboard layer under my picture, using the circles background chipboard piece.

 i hope you enjoyed today’s post!

have an amazing weekend!

hugs 'n smiles,
