Southern Girls - Boys are the Bomb

For our Boys are the Bomb challenge we have a great sponsor 

I used an image from my stash for this months challenge, A Randoim Fans, Superboy (sadly this image is not longer available)

Coloured with copic pens and clothing is all paper pieced.  Birthday card for a little boy who loves his Superheros. He has curly hair, so I have left his hair a bit curly swirly.

Inside I used more of the same paper as the backing for the front and added a diecut greeting from the same paper as his cape.

Unicorn Challenge Blog #45

Our theme at Unicorn Challenge Blog this month is "Baby or Child" and I decided to use some Graphic 45 papers and make a journal.

I've used one of those thick hard page books the little children have so they can't tear the pages.  Covered into Gel Medium Matte and added the papers.  Each double page has a blank side (for photos) and the opposite page has a pocket and a journal card.  Ribbon closes the album, gold metallic polish is around the outside of the pages.  Chipboard Sentiment and flowers, which I have fussy cut and layered onto black cardstock and re fussy cut have been added to the front.

Warning this is photo overload.
