Sk8er Boi - By Crece

Hi everyone, this is my first post for Purple Pumpkin for 2013, I hope you all had a wonderful New Year Celebration. Have you been able to find time to scrap and create during the holiday period???
I have managed to sneak in a few moments to be able to create some layouts, but its full on when the kids are home all day.

Here is a layout I created from a sketch from a challenge blog I frequent.

'Sk8er Boi'
This is my big boy Andy. He loves ride his skateboard down the hill in our street.
want to see some close ups of the Purple Pumpkin products I used...


and here are the strips of Washi Tape I have used.

have you noticed that when you use some of your washi tape on black or coloured paper it turns out
 like this..

 The 'white' of the washi tape doesn't really show very well does it...

Cut a strip of white paper/cardstock and run the washi tape along it...
Cut the strip...

 and there you have it, your whites looking white on a black or coloured piece of paper...
remember to put double sided tape on the back so you can stick it onto your layout like I have done above.

Hope you have a great rest of the week, Happy Crafting
