Tilda & Co challenge # 10

This weeks challenge for the Tilda & Co Challenge blog is

"From Boys to Men"



Here is what I made for the challenge.
The outside covers are made from two pieces of chipboard. I covered them both in papers from Basic Grey, Mellow. Then added the coloured in images of the step, owl and Edwin. "Dad" was made using my cricut. The two corners are decorated with some die cut photo corners in contrasting papers. I used the bind it all to hold it all together.




For the inside I again covered the chipboard in some contrasting BG mellow papers. I cut out a frame with the same papers and put in a photo of the kids. The stars are also from Magnolia and they are coloured in too. I printed out the calendar from the net and adhered it to some card using two brads. The calendar pages will easily rip off each month.

I made this for my DH to put on his desk at work.

Why not have a go at this week's challenge? The DT have again made some fab creations.

Papers:- Basic Grey Mellow
Stamps:- Magnolia
Corner die cuts:- Ellison thin cuts
Dad:- Cricut cartridge, Plantin Schoolbook
Calendar pages:- free off the net
Bind it all.
