Showing off my WOW projects

I have a few pages to share with you today, this month is simply flying past and I've realized that my blog was lacking a little WOW factor.

I have been busy scrapping away but I have been a little slack remembering to share my projects here on my blog. We did a recent trip to Victoria to show Harrison the snow. The short trip was a big hit and I managed to get plenty of photos along the way.

My first page features some fabulous Wood Veneer pieces the  Ampersand and the title piece So Awesome were left naked to compliment the colour palette.

The Messy Star chipboard frame has been simply covered with gold ink and used to frame his golden smile.

Snow & Sunshine

The second page is a beautiful snap of my Mum with Harrison and how's the amazing back drop of Lake Mountain.

I have used the 6x6 Background chipboard panel as a feature behind the photo. It was covered with gold ink first and then randomly coated with gold embossing powder.
