Saturday SOG Monthly Challenge

Happy Saturday!
Popping in on this wonderful Saturday becuase it is the first of the month and that means a brand new challenge over at Some Odd Girl!

This month the challenge is really fun.  The challenge is to use a stencil or mask. I used a Heidi Swapp stencil and used my mists to create an awesome background for my layout.  I then layered my pattern paper.  I am really into making my paper pop so I used my perfect layers tool to create matts for my pattern paper. With the wonderful tones of white, grey, pink and red, I knew that the chalkboard look would work really well with this and Core'dinations cardstock is so perfect for that.  I cut a word bubble using the Silhouette and then sanded it.  I then heat embossed the sentiment "love love love" using the I Do clear stamps set in white embossing powder.   I then did the same thing with the smile banner.  I used the sentiment from the clear set Photo Kaylee.  For  my title and doodle cut I used an Elle's studio cut file.  I added some October Afternoon stickers to continue my title and then I stamped my banner using Everyday Smiles " All day Everyday" to finish it off!  I LOVE how this one turned out.  Have you tried stamping on your scrapbook layouts?  I love it and don't be afraid to mix and match different sentiments from different collections.
This is a funny photo my boys and I took of ourselves on Instagram.  We were hanging out being goofy on one of our snow days and I thought to capture us all huddled together reading a book under a blanket.  We had so much fun.  The title really says it all I LOVE hanging with my boys all day everyday!!
