lawnscaping challenge #98 - create a background (with stamps!)

hello again! 
that weekend FLEW by for me..sigh. but that's ok, because today is monday! and that means a brand new lawnscaping challenge! and this time, we want to see you create you own background with stamps!

what a great idea and AWESOME way to stretch your stamps, right?
for today's project, i created a layout!

i must say, this came out pretty close to what i had in mind! :)
my little mann was an angel in his 3 year old preschool program, and it was SO adorable! (even more so, since he's really a big stinker! lol!). 

i used the monster with wings from Monster Mash and the squirrel dressed up as an angel from Critters in Costume and heat embossed them in white on the background of my white cardstock. then i watercolored on some soft scattered straw distress ink over the heat embossing subtle addition of color! i love that it's almost a soft, gold color! 

i die cut lots of snowflakes from the Stitched Snowflakes Lawn Cuts out of white cardstock, patterned paper and vellum to ground the photo! then i stitched on the sentiment and snowflakes - those babies aren't going anywhere! lol!

lastly, i added some watercolored tags, with the date (Violet's ABC's), some gold glitter tape and a little sub-title in gold (also using Violet's ABC's) at the bottom! 

so yes...that's my layout! are you ready to play along?
