An altered project

So I have been working on some of my faults for this I always order the altered project deals through CTMH but I never end up completing them. So I am trying to change that. So here is the Rock the Block promotion that I just finished putting together.
So the colors I used are Juniper and Creme. Inspired by one of my fav paper packs. Veranda!
I decided to use up some embellishments that I knew I was not going to use any where else as well. So I added the Bliss flowers /butterfly pack, juniper buttons, pearls, stick pin, and Creme ribbon that I had left over from another promotion.

(dont know why it keeps underlining but I cant seem to get rid of it )
This little guy has been sitting in my craft room for a very long time. I found him for a $1 at Micheals once and thought, hey I could do something with him. Well today was that day. I had a spot that was looking bare.. when I looked up to think there he was. And doesn't he look fab on top of my blocks. I think it almost looks like the project was made around him.

Thanks for looking
By the way I also have 7 layouts completed that I will start posting very soon so keep checking back!

layout # 5

This layout has been sitting around since Jenn's last scrapbooking weekend. I just had not finished it. I really liked how it turned out with nothing on it. So I kept humming and haaing over if I should leave it or add the extras. So here it is with the extras. I am not 100% happy with the results but its growing on me.

These pictures were taken last summer at our camper after a weekend of straight rain. I decided to get some cute little pictures of my little guy mud puddle jumping, why? Because I am a scrapbooker and a nut all at the same time. It did not take long for my 13 year old to join in. So 200 pictures later and a lot of weird looks from the other campers this is what I got!!
(ok i dont know why but only the last picture will enlarge if you click on it)
Hard to see here but I used spray mist on the layouts, I used our Ch reinker and a little of out pearl paint. I should of added extra reinker but that's ok.

I then used our Flip Flaps - I really adore them by the way for big layouts like this one. Really there is more then one 2 page layout here.
I used some sunset assortment accessories I had left over. Also the ch felt flowers were lying around from another accessory kit I had. I also added pearls as well.
The banner words are embossed with cocoa embossing powder then brayered with sunset.
I added some cut outs from the Art Philosophy Cart, and a canvas button badge to this one.

Hard to see I know but the second title states A mud puddle jumped on me! Got to love Robert Munch. Sorry noticed afterwards in the final picture the little felt flower fell off, it was part of the sunset cluster at the bottom of my sons picture, of him giggling.
