Right on Top

Hello everyone! Hope your weekend is going well :)
    This picture is from our vacation to France 2 years ago. We made it to the top of the Eiffel Tower! This is the view from the 2nd floor. Honestly, the 2nd floor was better for pictures than the very top. There are still so many pictures from that trip that I want to scrapbook! I really had  fun with this LO. I used mists on the background, strips and the doily. The banner is hand cut triangles on some twine.Very simple LO, really. The journaling is kind of faint but that was the plan.

Details:
Papers: Antiquities by GCD Studios.
Alpha stickers: For the Record collection by Echo Park.
Mists: Maya Road -Metallic Latte & Creme Metallic; Tattered Angels- Candy Apple .
Stamp by TCP Studios and doily from my stash. 
     The alpha stickers are from this cool shop I just found called My Scraps and More, they also have a blog. I hope you check them out. I really like the customer service :)
But before you go...

Nothing sweeter than a baby :)

     My nephew has been a super sweet and happy baby. He's already over a year old and I have only made 3 LO's! I got these wonderful stamps yesterday and I couldn't resist making a LO for my nephew. 
     I need to print more pictures of him now. He looks so different and he's so big. But still happy and sweet as ever! Here he is at about 3 months:

 

Details: 
Kraft paper sprayed with Tattered Angels Waterslide. 
DCWV Playtime stack 
Crafter's Companion Humphrey's Corner New Baby stamps (colored with pencils) 
Buttons and embroidery thread from my stash

Love how the Humphrey stamps look on the LO! they're colored with pencils right on the craft paper.
