Live *Pion Design/Helmar*

I was so inspired by the new challenge site CSI (challenge #19 due tomorrow) to create this layout as Pion Design DT work (For Mother Collection) and my first project for Helmar Adhesives. I will also be teaching this layout on June 16th, complete with the large white handmade flower (a mix of a few of my flower tutorial techniques), chipboard techniques, gesso, sanding, chalking, and so much more! Class details will soon be posted next week at Paper and Lace (Strathmore, Alberta, Canada).

Well, this is my middle child at the ripe age of 5 years old. You see, he has an amazing sense of balance and he could actually skateboard and ride a 2-wheeled bike by his 4th birthday (self taught!!!). So... you can imagine how high the ramps are and what he does now 3 years later at 7 years old (scares the crap outta me!). Anyways, who says you can't put doilies and flowers and pearls on a boy layout? I created this with the intention of making a baby layout but these pictures just called to me. BTW - this layout style is GREAT for using up your precious scraps :)

I love this layout! Love all the different elements!

Boy's are great aren't they! I knew my son would be my broken bone kid too early in his life! Never afraid to try something at least once!

Deep breath and enjoy the fun!

Hi>> wow.. I love the use of the doilleys and circles, and yes it would be good for those bits of papers too good to throw out, yet not big enough for anything much!!

What a great page, love the design and yes it's pretty but not "girly". Oh, and yes , your "little one" looks way too small to be on that skateboard on that big ramp, but he seems like he's a natural so I'm sure he'll be fine xx.
