Kraft It Up Challenge

This months KIU challenge was to use kraft cs of course and to have 4-6 photos on your LO.  I decided to use some recent pics I took of Luke which he was playing is guitar.  Thought I would go for the grungy look and used kraft for background which I stamped with Prima music stamp, splattered some paint and inked the edges.  The pp is Bo Bunny Mamma Razzi and the embellishments are from Creative Imaginations.

Scrap the Boys - July Challenge

This month at Scrap the Boys the challenge was to use a portrait shot and record your boy’s vital statistics right now making sure you add in some quirky facts.  This was my take on the challenge.  I used a very recent pic of DS Luke, looking very handsome.  The pp's are Prima, Glitz Design, Rusty Pickle and Kaiser.  The embellishment used are Basic Grey Basics and Glitz Design.  Grunged it up with some silver and black misting, stitching and staples and then stapled on some string.  

The 10 things Luke loves are:  listening to heavy metal,  to play your guitar, the band 'Trivium', watching 'Top Gear', your Doc Martins, sneaking coke from the fridge, dressing up for Cosplay, Mum's bolognese, to watch Anime and getting on your computer.  TFL
