Little Dude Layout

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by.  Today I am sharing a layout with you and the star of the layout is my beautiful grandson - who happens to turn three TODAY!  What a wonderful three years it has been - my heart has never been so full, my eyes overflowed so much and my neck had such loving arms around it!  But back to the layout...I had a pile of over fifty photos and have managed to work through quite a few of them.

The photos have been trimmed and layered onto patterned paper that has been popped onto the 12x12 background at an angle.  Spellbinders Shapeabilities Sunburst Etched Dies by Seth Apter has been cut/embossed and the two largest Dies have been glued onto the lower right corner of the layered photos. Die D-Lites Gears Etched Dies have been cut/embossed in gold card stock and layered into the Sunburst Dies. A large red button has been glued to the centre of the Dies.

Gears have been layered onto the top of the photos along with three red buttons.  The sentiment stickers are used to create the sentiment above the photos and the other part of the sentiment is from Cosmo Cricket.  

The ants are Rub Ons, as is the sentiment on the photo.  The Washi Tape is from my stash.White Paint Pen has been used to add a hand drawn border  

This card is for the following challenges:
