LOC TCR#4 Love my Bear

Helo - I am finally here -  have felt like I am 'behind the eight ball' all day and have had to photograph this layout three seperate times to get rid of shadows as it is WET and overcast - not that I am complaining about the weather - it is just hard to photograph properly!

This layout is for The Color Room - using the colours for this weeks palette, I love the autumn tones and there is plenty of inspiration around here at the moment - Canberra is spectacular in autumn.

These photos are of my children when they were younger, they wanted to have a Birthday Party for their Teddy Bears - they just loved those bears ( and just quietly, still do!)  I used the delish cupcake from the Layers of Color art stamp set Birdday Party and added it to the lace.  I also added a leaves and flowers throughout the layout from the Nature Walk art stamp set.  I love the special touches they add.

I have tried to keep a masculine feel to things, for my DS's sake but could not resist adding the flowers from Nature Walk here as well!

How cute is this cat from the Dotted Delights art stamp set - I just had to add him - I love the tail just hanging there, as cat's do!   The flourish is from the Creative Flourishes art stamp set.

These ticketed sentiments from Autumn Leaves  are among my favourites - my DH hunted for them, and the punch, everywhere for me when I was new to stamping and finally found then at Simon Says Stamp - I thought it was the cutest name for a 'little shop'  - LOL!  How little did I know back then - and what a darling my DH is for going to so much trouble for me - I am keeping him!! LOL!

I love these letters and  have to tell you that my DH got me these too - from our local Kmart - they were on sale for $1 a pack - God bless that man - he looks after me.  I inked them with Tim Holtz Distressing Ink in Walnut Stain and then sponged them with Marmalade - ink, NOT jam - just incase you wondered! LOL!  So there you have it - I am happy with it, but you know how it is, they always look better in real life - or is that because of my photography!?!?
