Mess Maker Layout

     If you saw my ScrapStuffz October Reveal this is the matching page to the layout, and I think I actually like it better than the first one!  If you haven't seen it's companion you can find it: Here
     I tried a technique I saw on your tube for creating the photo frame using half circles.  While the tutorial showed using all patterned paper I chose to use two patterns and two solids to give it a less busy effect. 
    The title comes from my little ones shirt, but applies very well as he fell asleep having a bottle and there is milk dribbling down his chin.  I'm sure he'll love this photo when he's older...haha
   The splatters, stars and asterisk type items are embossed using red and black to match the washi and thicker title. 
    Have you tried any new techniques lately?  Leave me a comment and I'll come check them out.

    1. Thank you Diana - I thought the colors balanced out how light skinned my little one is and how light his shirt was.
