ickle Michael!

I'm back!
I needed some time out this morning so i chose a challenge that needed doing and got to it with my new papers that have just come into stock. 
its the My minds Eye - Miss Caroline range
if you are interested?!?!? if you want any give me a shout :)

the challenge I chose to do is a sketch challenge from the scrap365 magazine blog. they have always had an internet site for it but now they have launched the challenge blog and you can find it and the challenge i followed here

the sketch was very cool, and i just couldn't wait to get stuck into the Miss Caroline range, its so nice, I squealed a little when I got the delivery. it has different sub sections within the whole range, some are more male orientated and others more feminine, but I like and will use them all.
this morning I chose to do some very old pictures of Michael.
he was just over 1 in these photos, looking all cosy and warm in his huge puffer coat and cute bear hat.

the only piece on here that isn't Miss Caroline, is the x and O sheet, and that was actually packaging from another range that i have in. 
i think amongst all the colour it needed an extra bit of grey to tone it back down. 
I love love love the planks papers in the range, there are a few different ones, but this one worked best for me. 
I added some brads from the same range and also a journalling card. 
thanks for looking today
