For The Boys

Hi Folks
Hoping to get in my crafty room for a bit today.  The weather is not looking too good so no plans to go out anywhere.  Much prefer to stay in the warm and craft lol.

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at A Gem of a Challenge.  Our theme for this week is hosted by the lovely Katie and she has chosen
For The Boys

The prize as always is

2 individual digi images
of the winners choice from Pink Gem Designs

Here is my inspiration project

I decided to go for a blue and yellow combination using Baby Boy Teddy.  I used the pre coloured version of the image and printed it out a couple of times to enable me to layer it.  The image was then cut out using a Marianne die and mounted onto a doily.  The spotty backing papers are from Papermania.  I used coredinations card for the matting and used my MS Punches to create the card shape.  Just love this punch around the page.  I added some buttons shaped like hands (which have been in my stash for a good 12 months), gems, ribbon and a bow.  

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your creations.  Just pop over to A Gem of a Challenge to upload your entry.  Don't forget to check out the inspiration projects from the design team while you are there.
