Big Boy Aiden

Well hello, Sheila here from Shes A Sassy Lady and it seems like such a long time since I was here at Tuesday Treats. It's just been a busy, busy month, imagine that! You know we all lead such busy lives that it feels so good to just close the door and let your imagination go crazy and just have fun with a layout. So once again I didn't follow Pam's guide lines and went outside of the box. You see, I was just in Chicago for my little Carissa's 6th birthday and in the midst of the party and all the goings on was our little1 year old Aiden. He was so happy and ever so busy with his little toys that I just had to do this page - his way. I didn't know what I was going to do until Friday came along and the wonderful ladies at Stuck On U Sketches challenged us with this wonderful sketch... and once again I was out side the box. You see flowers, I see toys.

After designing the page on My Gypsy Woman I went hunting for just the right papers. I choose My Minds Eye, Twinkle Twinkle little boys stack and I love the sparkle it added. I then got out the scrap box and just used scraps for the toys.
Here is a close up of the background paper. The little brown squares made it possible for me to sent the rhinestones on this pastle paper.
I then turned to all the little toys and got them ready. First I chalked.
Then I inked and put together.
Until I had all my little toys together. I didn't get complex on the little toys becasue they weren't complex, they were just simple little plain line toys for a 1 year old boy.
I then added my rhinestones.
And placed my little toys around the photos.
After I had the toys on I used the glossy accents on the tires of the truck as I couldn't handle and postion while wet so I waited until it was all together.
Isn't that just too cool? Aiden't little world is one filled with joy and imagination and wonder. What a great place to visit.
This is a close up with all the little toys.
And the completed page. How much fun is that? See sometimes you just got to go the fun route. I would like to add that this sketch is perfect for Home Decor, Home Accents and Accent Essentials, but the toys were a better choice for my little Aiden. I sure hope you enjoyed today's project.
Thank you for your sweet words of incouragement, as they continue to inspire me to keep sharing with you.
