Sweet Friends - June Hip Kit - Stuck!?

Hallo there.  I never knew that your heart's capacity to love can expand with each grandchild that is born.  Sometimes my heart just feels so full when I look at the ones who have my whole heart.  Wynand took these photos of Lukas on their small holding recently.

Lukas turned 8 in June...isn't he a handsome young man...just look at those dimples.

 Lukas never gets bored with his own company.

 He loves to play with his farm animals and his car collection.

I wonder what is going through that head when he is so busy playing.

Today I am playing along with Stuck!? Sketches latest challenge.,,and I am using one of the photos of Lukas taken on the day the photos above was taken.  This is my first page with the June kit and I always find cutting into a new kit challenging...not knowing what I love most.

Supply list:  Patterned papers:  Hip Kit Exclusives, Pink Paislee, Simple Stories; Alpha letters: Jillibean Soup; Wood Veneer: Jillibean Soup, Chipboard: Blue Fern Studios; Brads: Simple Stories; Enamel dots: Simple Stories; Die Cuts: Hip Kit Exclusives; Puffy stickers: Hip Kit Exclusives; Embroidery Floss: DMC; Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink; Stencil: Crafters Workship; Stamps: Prima; Texture Paste: Daler Rowney; Embossing Powder: Lindy's Stamp Gang.

Here is Laura's sketch:

Some close ups:

 I cut the Blue Fern Studio's "Seeing Stars" chipboard apart, painted it and then heat embossed it.

 I added some frames to my layers.  I love stitching on my pages...if you haven't noticed ;-)

 I also used some corrugated board for extra texture.  I used one of the project life cards above the photo.

 A little bit of mixed media behind my title.

 Love how this one turned out.
