James meets the (Great) Grandparents

Still playing catch-up on my great niece and nephew's albums, this page is for James'

Papers are the same as the first pages of his book, Up Up & Away by Mindy Terasawa.
I drew a circle inside and out of my large circle cutter in pencil then used a swirl stamp from a SU Christmas set and some Baja Breeze ink to create the shape.
The photographs were matted onto patterned papers with the edges placed under the circles on the pattern.

I used 3 tags and stuck them together then added rub-on letters for the title.

I cut out clouds from another sheet which was thermographically glittered and added their names to two. 

The base paper has a fluffy cloud/floral shape so I used a Martha Stewart glitter pen and traced them, but only the ones inside the circle.

I punched circles from the remaining patterned paper and put them around the edge on 3d foam.
Buttons and pearls were added too.
I ran a edge around the page with a fine-liner to finish.

Thanks for your comment on my blog... to answer your question, yes, they do come out of the mold before they harden. With FIMO, you bake it in the oven to harden it. So you push it into the mold and because the mold is flexible you can just bend it to pop the piece out and then bake in the oven to finish. :)
