Hugs, Kisses

The challenge for January on the More Than Words Challenge blog
is in celebration of their 2 year anniversary so what a more fitting way
to honour this than to use a photo of my youngest son celebrating his 2nd birthday!

 The word 'Birthday' is the inspiration for the layout and the creative challenge is to use tags.
I've tucked a couple of tags in behind the photo and incorporated bright colours, balloons and a few small toys.
Here are some close ups.

Both my son and I are very pleased with the outcome.
Products used:
Papers; 7 Dots Studio - cotton candy dreams, Prima - sunrise sunset, Dina Walkey clear gesso, Dusty Attic distressed grid stencil, Prima Color Bloom spray mist - lime wedge, Ranger distress spray stain - carved pumpkin, American Crafts Zing! embossing powder - apricot, BoBunny nested terrific tag dies, Sizzix banner dies, Scrapiniec chipboard, Art Alchemy acrylic paint - metallique lime peel, mini prills - lettuce entertain you!, Art Alchemy glass beads - crystal, Art Ingredients melange art pebbles, Art Ingredients art stones, Art Basics light paste, Elizabeth Craft Designs silk microfine glitter - soft green.
