White With 1 - Jan Challenge

Love You to The Moon & Back

This month's challenge over at White With 1 is:

Royal Blue OR Navy and White; and

use a banner somewhere on your LO

Pop on over and check out all the gorgeous CT creations for some inspiration!!

For my CT LO I decided on navy. At first I thought this would be a difficult challenge as I didn't have much in my stash that was Navy, but I found a few cute pieces in my scraps and went from there.

This is one of my absolute fav pics of Luke when he was little, as I don't have very many up close shots of my children when they were young. Almost makes me want to cry looking at it... he was so sweet and now my baby is all grown up!!

Went with a bit of masking as I had some navy paint. The banner is a Scrap FX chippie which I painted white and covered some of the banners with Kaiser pp. Bit of crumpling, embossing and punching for some texture and some bakers twine. The cute covered aeroplane button is from Sam over at Purple Pumpkin.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving some love :)

  8. This is so cool. I love your masking and the shape of your banner is great. That is a very cute pic and I know what you mean by close ups. My eldest is only 9 but even back then, photography was different and no digital so pics were hit and miss.
