Heartbreaker by Kay

Good morning fellow Berry71Bleu fans!  Kay here with my interpretation of this month's challenge.  I've created this layout based on a sketch provided by fellow DT member Sandra Przybylska.

This is my son when he was about 6 months old.  I put one of my husband's baseball caps on him & I was able to capture this wonderful shot of him peeking out from under the hat with one eye.  He's my little 'heartbreaker'.  This is one of my favorite photos!  :-)

August Sketch by Sandra Przybylska

Here's the sketch that you much use in order to participate in this month's challenge.  It's simple but versatile.  One can interpret the elements of this sketch in a variety of different ways.

 I've used felt embellishments generously provided by Chantal Vandenberg--one of our sponsors this month & owner of an Etsy shop that provides many felt embellishments in a variety of themes.
 Here's a closeup of a felt mushroom by Chantal Vandenberg.  How cute & befitting for my page.
 Here's another felt embellishment by Chantal & the yellow felt clouds are also by Chantal.  I've tucked several different embellishments all along my page that represent both little baby boys (such as the punched yellow elephant seen here) & more masculine embellishments (such as the bow tie & mustache) to represent the 'little man' he's slowly growing up to be.
The 'Heartbreaker' title & the large steampunk hot air balloon are chipboard pieces provided by another one of our sponsors for this month 'Creative Embellishments'.  Here's a closeup of the hot air balloon.  It was first painted in white paint, then red.  I spread a bit of transparent glitter paint & finished it off by adding a light coat of crackle paint.

Now onto the sponsors for this month & all the wonderful prizes up for grab.  Good luck to all who participate...

Lemon Owl is an Ukrainian scrapbook and paper crafting brand created in the end of 2012. We put our first collection, Attic Door, on sale right before the New Year – the magical time between old and new, past and future, when dreams can come true. We like to experiment with colour combos and interesting patterns while creating our unique designs. Our style is fresh and bright, sometimes it is eclectic, and sometimes it is clean and elegant.

Nicolle Kramer. They are a husband and wife team who design and

If you have clicked on one of my creations and smiled then I consider my work a success! My name is Chantal and I live in beautiful Adelaide, South Australia. I began scrapbooking 5 years ago and since then I've never looked back. I've always loved art (particularly cartooning) and through scrapbooking, this passion has been dusted off and reignited tenfold! Yay! I would describe my scrapbooking style as fun, funky, colourful and whimsical. I love to inject lots of personality into my work and I really enjoy bringing memories to life through creativity.

I'm very fortunate and blessed to be a 2014 Scrapbooking Memories Master, and to have my work published regularly in scrapbooking magazines in Australia and worldwide. Plus now I'm also having so much fun designing and making my own scrapbooking embellishments - so that you can enjoy crafting and creating with a lovely collection of cute bits and pieces to play with too! If you see something you like, but would like a larger quantity, please feel free to convo me. I'm also always happy to make up custom orders.

Have lots of fun looking around and thank YOU for considering byChantalVandenberg! :)
