Week 4 - SB top 50

week 4 of the scraplift challenges over at Scrapbooking top 50 Aust
This week we had to scraplift
and here is my take of her awesome page
 I have kept a similar sketch but flipped it, but went also with:
oranges and blues,felt items, badge, circle behind the photo and stars
next up was a lift of Em Stafrace
Here is my take on her page:
I have flipped the sketch, but kept a similar shape.
Still used the filmstrip inspired photos,
the banners under the photo, similar colour scheme,
stenciling on the background and replaced the
buttons with brads 
these scraplift challenges have been so much fun and because
I have done both lifts each week I have now completed
8 extra pages this month!!!
Gotta be happy with that!

I had photos that suited the criteria so I gave it a go
sport photos, 1 photo smaller than 6x4, stamping, and I have picked the colour 
red from the list
to compliment the colours in the photos.
Here is a closeup of the stamping and embellies
Here is my take

proudly in his room.
