Angels Unleashed...Mcauley & Icah...It's a boy thing!

Well hello and happy 2011 to all of you beautiful bloggers!! I am trying to make a promise to myself to post at least once a month in this new year....maybe more if time allows....

This is a photo of my son and our newest addition, Icah...he was a Christmas gift and has brought us so much joy in a short time...so much fun! I changed the photo to b/w and added the eye color...and here are my lovely angels unleashed!!!! The papers are from DCWV, from the Be Mine collection and the Le Creme Stack. I water distressed the papers, crumpled, tore and then did some lacing with embroidery floss. There is a book page peeking from under the marquee that I cut and laced.

Several cricut carts were used for this one. Angels was cut from Graphically Speaking...the word was angel, I cut past from the same cart and added the S. The gorgeous fence is from Heritage. The shimmer papers cut wonderfully...especially for small, detailed images. I added the Griffin brad from Creative Imaginations.

The wings again cut from the shimmer card stock are from Indie Art, the clock from Graphically Speaking, and the lock and key are from Sentimentals. the Friendship tag and flower were both from my stash. I cut the marquee from Sentimentals and the photo mat from A Child's Year.

The 'collar' is embossed with my cuttlebug and then some faux stitching added to help with the total look. The metal items are all from Hobby Lobby...things I've picked up on clearence here and there. The It's A Boy tag from the baby isle at Michaels. I have added Mcauley and Icah to the 'dog tag' along with the date. Both unleashed and thing are computer generated, letters cut apart and inked.

The clouds are cut from Zoobaloo, the stars and star flourishes both from Home Decor. I also added some feathers to create a since of wings. The quote is "Each of us are angels with one wing, to fly we need only embrace each other."

Thanx for stopping by, hope you have a fab day!!!!!
Much Love,
