Awesome - Celeb8 Chit Chat

Hi there friends.  I am still in the process of trying to post each of the pages that I have created in the time that I haven't been please bear with me.  I am sharing one of my most recent pages today.  While I was at the Celebr8 technique event in Benoni I was pleased to find the new Chit Chat collection designed by Kim Watson in our goodie box.  This week I found the time to begin playing with it.  Here is one of my pages using some photos of Juan and Stefan taken on Stefan's 4th birthday:

Supply list:  Patterned papers:  Celebr8 Chit Chat; Cardstock; American Craft; Chipboard: Blue Fern Studios;  Wood Veneer:  Cocoa Vanilla Studio (gears), Jillibean Soup (awesome title); Flair: Adri du Preez; Buttons: Cocoa Vanilla Studio; Enamel stars: Cocoa Vanilla Studio;  Die Cuts: Cocoa Vanilla Studio; Embroidery floss: DMC; Paint: Iris Acrylic; Ink: Memento; Stamps: Celebr8; Punch: Fiskars; Other: Silhouette Cameo.

I have rediscovered the pleasure of working with Laura Whitaker's sketches:

Some close ups:
 I cut the big ampersand with my silhouette cameo and then stitched around was then popped up on foam tape of dimension.

 The square chipboard frame is by Blue Fern Studios and painted grey with acrylic paint.

 I cut a tag from the cut apart sheet of the Chit Chat collection and used the twine and string in the embellishment pack.  I found that the Cocoa Vanilla Studio Totally Rad collection's embellishments worked perfectly with this Celebr8 collection.
