Scrapbook lay out

A 8x8 scrapbook layout of my gorgeous little grandson & his cheeky smile.
The paper is from Ki which was double sided with the brown swirly pattern on the back & as I had two sheets of this paper I've been able to used reverse side for the other sheet.
I've dug out some more eyelets ( trying to get them used up) & used them around the circle.
The little arrow & hearts I'd coloured with blue ink.

"Hello" Scrapbook Layout

A scrapbook layout using paper from Sassafias called cherry delicious . Its a double sided paper which has very bold red flowers on the other side which wouldn't have work .
I chose this yellow side as it went well with the photos I wanted to use of my Grandson.
The letters are from K& Co & the camera from Simple stories . The large brads are from my stash .
I've added three wooden stars & coloured them with brown & blue ink to match everything else.
Quite a simple layout .

Inchies, Twinchies, & Tags

Karen has arranged for some swap to take on .
I've joined three of the swaps which as you can see from my post I've been busy crafting little inches (1x1 inch squares) using a stamp from Crafty individuals.  This was way out of my comfort zone but I gave it my best shot.
The  second swap I joined was Twinches . Twinchies are 2x2 inch squares, which are much easier to work with I found then inchies.  
The third swap I'd joined was more in my comfort zone making mix media tags, although these tags had to be a little smaller then usual. The tags measured 2inch x4inch.
 My tags was made with Dylusions spray ink Vibrant Turquoise, & Fresh Lime.
The letter stamp is one from the dylusions range & the ink used was Archival Egg Plant.
Using a crafters workshop template I went over parts of the template with Viva Croco Gold Crackle.
Here's a closer look are the finished results once the croco crackle has dried.
It's given the look of gold glass which is a look I'm pleased with  & must remember to use it more often.
