Another P please Bob! (for Patchwork that is)

Couldn't resist the title - hopefully some of you will remember Blockbusters TV show?
I really enjoyed this challenge, this syle of page really works for all occassions.
My niece had her son last October and I promised to make a scrapbook for her as I did for her daughter, and all the great nieces/nephews so far!
I had been shopping Lynn recently and found this a pad of 12x12 papers called Up & Away by Mindy Terasawa. They were just what I had been looking for to start this project, so here is my first page.

I cut some of the papers into the 3" squares as before and once I had inked the edges, stuck them onto a 12x12 cream sheet.

The papers included a sheet of assorted tags and an alphabet too.
I cut around the letters, inked the edges and added to the tags with 3d foam, then added the bunting with more 3d pads. I used bakers twine through the holes in the tags, looping it along the way.
Some of the papers are thermographically glittered as you can see below, just gorgeous!

 I cut a round tag and added below the photograpgh which is 13x14cm and mounted onto the reverse of one of the papers.

A selection of buttons from my button box were threaded with the same twine and added.

And of couse, the random cross stitches onto the page.

For full details of the challenge and fabulous prize on offer hop over to Scrapology blog - some great work by our amazing DT this month too!

Thanks for looking.
