The Cuttlebug Spot - Layout Challenge

This week at The Cuttlebug Spot we're challenged to make a layout. I have never made a layout before... I take loads of pictures, and print them too, but never get them to paper. I am happy this page came together fairly simply, and the results have me wanting to keep on going with more pages.

I used 2 cuttlebug folders, Herringbone and Explore, adding texture to the wallet sized prints on the right side of the page.
Paper, chipboard, sticker and rub-ons are Basic Grey - Archaic
Stamps are Scrappy Cat - Journaling Blocks and Autumn Leaves - Talking in Circles (boys)
I love the buttons. I added copper wire in the holes, then inked them with brown Staz-On ink to show the different textures on the buttons and dull out the shine a bit.

This picture is hot off the press... Liam and Mike just returned from a fishing date. Liam caught his first Small Mouth Bass from start to finish... hooked, and reeled in without help. He is so excited. After seeing the bow shoot layout he is certain I need to make one with this picture too! He says, "Mom, Is that a "HOT DOG?" (Mike told him "Hot dog, that sure is a big fish!") So... I guess it is a Hot dog! LOL And he let me know he caught it on his ugly stick... which I later learned is the actual name of the fishing pole. I guess I need to up my skills! Little cutie.

Fabulous job Rheannon! I'm not a layout person either so this really was a challenge. Love that you used the embossed words. Too cute, you're a natural. xxD

Hun, I totally love this layout! The embossed words on the smaller pics on the right are such a great idea and I love the wire in the buttons. But most of all I love that photo you used on the left side - the persepective is great. It´s what Liam saw when he searched for the target - and so it´s kind of bow shooting with him.

Big congrats to him for the catch of his very first "own" fish! It sure is a very hot dog!!!

Big hugs to you all!
