My Teddy, My Friend

Hi there, how’s your weekend going?  Today I’m sharing a layout for More Than Words’ August Friends & Circles Challenge:


I’ve used some yummy Scrapmatts chipboards & stencils, & my favourite Tattered Angels mists & Canvas Corp papers.

“My Teddy, My Friend”

My Teddy, My Friend

I totally love everything about this challenge…it had me at circles & friends! My daughter from when she started sleeping in her cot, wouldn’t sleep without her friend teddy.  I say thank goodness for teddy bear, she sleeps well most nights.  Now that she’s nearly 6, she still has it in her bedroom.


Canvas Corp Materials: Baby Girl Words on Ivory Paper; Baby Girl Quotes on Ivory Paper; Pink & Ivory Toile Paper

Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mists: Splash; Teal High Heel; Chalk

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists: Navy Blue; Cadillac Pink; Abominable Snowman


Scrapmatts Chipboards: Ornate Frame (CB6011); Hearts Frame (CB4005); Butterflies (CB1045); Stars String Circles (CB5138); Black Scrap Words (CB1237)

Scrapmatts Stencils: Cobblestones (ST5014); Circles (ST5006)


I’ve embossed the frame white, & I love how it frames her sweet picture.  They look so peaceful & heavenly when they’re asleep, quiet & behaved like that, eh? 🙂  I’ve inked the butterflies & stars chipboards white to match the white shades of the frame & the layout.


I didn’t skimp on adding lots of different circles on the page.  I’ve used Finnabair’s Art Stones & Art Melange (some I’ve used upside down), buttons, pearls, bling, circles on the frame, circles on the lace, round doily, circles stencil & pink circle roses.


For the hearts chipboard, I’ve given it a coat of Tim Holtz’s grit paste.  Once dry, I then misted it with Tattered Angels Cadillac Pink Glimmer Mist.  I’ve also applied this paste on my background, along with some good ol’ texture paste through Scrapmatts’ Cobblestones Stencil.


Behind the Baby Girl Words on Ivory Paper is a layer of the Pink & Ivory Toile Paper which I’ve lightly colored with the same Cadillac Pink Glimmer Mist.  For the burst of blues around the frame, I’ve layered the delicious Splash, Teal High Heel, & Navy Chalkboard Mists.  I’ve finished it all off by adding some mica flakes & some subtle glitter.

Thanks for popping in.  I enjoyed creating this page & thank you for the superb inspiration from the More Than Words creative team.
