Pion Design Baby Boy Frame

My cousin is having a baby boy early this summer and this paper from the Pion Design "forget me not" collection was a perfect compliment to the Tattered Angels glimmer chips that I inked with light brown chalk ink. For project photography, I just put a picture of one of my kids. This is actually my newborn daughter in one of her brothers old baby sleepers... must have been a busy week and I ran out of clean PJ's, LOL. I covered a little wooden frame that I bought at Michaels and embellished it - so easy. I hope my cousin likes it!

Design Tip: Don't use Tattered Angels glimmer mist on glimmer chips. I ruined a cute little train I was going to use on this frame (instead of the adventure sign). It turned out flat looking and way too dark. Diffusing chalk ink onto a Q-tip worked like a charm to show the embossing on the chipboard. 

Thanks for stopping by and I will be back on Sunday with another Pion Design project using a new Creative Scrappers sketch.
