DYSU Challenge #64 - PLAID!

Winner's Choice of 3 Digital Images

Winner's Choice of 4 Digital Images

A "Toodle Club Membership" and a Toodle Birthday Calendar

My project started out as a card. Quickly, I decided that with this adorable little guy's image from Crafty Sentiments,
I would be missing out on a great opportunity to create a
Summer Memory book for my grandson.

Being a beginner with Copics markers,
I had quite a challenge with the hair on this image.
I was far from happy with the way it looked, so I dampened a terry cloth with the Alcohol Blending solution and dabbed his head a bit.  He's hot, so I figured his hair would be damp, also.  It may not be visible in the photo.

I also dabbed the fan with some dotted cloth to make it appear more textured.
Since I have no pictures to add just yet, I finished up the remaining pages in co-ordinating papers and added some little Summer stamps.

I am including photos of only two of the pages, as the pictures didn't come out very well anyway. But you get the idea.
Once I fill it with photos of Hayden having a great summer,
it will be one of his favorite mini albums!

Check out the rest of the Design Team's projects!
Plaid is so much fun to play with!
