Creative Scrappers #164 | My First Pet

Hi there! :)  It's reveal day at Creative Scrappers  :)  Sketch #164 is AWESOME and I plan to use it again and again! :)  Here's the sketch & my take on it:
I love how this LO came together.  The sketch design, colors, photos etc. . .they all just seemed to fall into place.  I know I'll love this LO for a long time to come. :)
One of the techniques I knew I wanted to use was masking & misting.  Here, I used a portion of a Studio Calico wood veneer shape to create a sunburst journaling block. I just *love* the color. . .hence the opacity. . .although I prefer to call it 'a thorough job'.  :)  The '4' game piece was added to remind me of Nathan's age.

The two photos above show some of the layers, misting blocks, stitched tabs and bits of stuff I used. :)  -Yes. . .he really named his pet worm, 'Wormy'. . .LOL!
