Oh, I did soooo enjoy doing this one! 
The SCRAP THE BOYS sketch:
I had planned to do a OTT MM LO. 
Hah! Acronyms! I mean an Over The Top, Mixed Media Lay Out!!!
But, instead, this happened. Pretty much by itself!!
 I used washi for the inside frame. Then, because it often does NOT
stay stuck down, added rows of stitching to it.
The little clusters started with tag type embellies, but somehow a
number of animals wanted to be added!!!
Added some subtle stamped 'splats' - the teddy was done on my
Brother Scan'n'Cut....the green dot tag is actually washi I covered it in....
The little dog is a gift from Anna U, I gave it a studded. Well, bradded collar
The black triangles another washi covered tag. And the little flair was one
of the gifts we got at Camp Mojo.
And lastly, a little stamped bird [on packaging that happened to be
the perfect colour! But SHINY, so I had to use STAZ ON ink].
Then I fussy cut it. More dang fussy cutting - bane of my life!
And the journaling says it all, I think;)
Thanks for looking & Happy Scrapping y'all!
