I really love this circle stamp from SC and waited so long to get it. I stamped this and used bright red embossing powder. Then I added little brads and buttons all over in different colors. I don't think my love was unfounded at all, I am so excited by how this turned out.

*SC wood veneers
Using by 8x10 photos makes pages come together so quickly for me. I used the SC butterfly wood veneers and used paint dabbers to give them a sort of hombre blue shade. I added even more depth with Maya bingo wood pieces. I love the earthy feel it gives the page, very reminiscent of ren-fair.
I am totally addicted to embossing right now and used it again here. The little white sunburst gets so much more depth from being embossed instead of just inked on. Plus, I had to do something special for the LO about the first time Nandini rolled over (at two weeks!).
*story behind the photo
I had so many random little pictures on my memory card from Nandini's delivery which were taken by her proud big brother. They are so hilarious, but mostly just blurry shots of the blanket or his own finger on the lens, that it took a while for me to figure out how I ought to do it. I ended up making a photo grid on picasa with them and framing it in this polaroid chipboard. Note how he did manage to get at least one good picture!
