Inspired by Color -- and Core’dinations!

I've been wanting to participate in one of the monthly Core’dinations challenges, and today managed to do so! Here is their Inspiration photo for the month of August:

Lovely colors! Fresh, yet timeless, all in one! Using some of the fabulous Core’dinations cardstock, we were to make a layout that used these same colors, and featured an interesting technique. Here is my take on the challenge:

I featured photos of each of my boys, at approximately the same age. I love seeing them as babies! For my fun technique, I made my tag with the yummy turquoise cardstock, and using a chipboard "3" on the back of tag, sanded the cardstock to see the 3 emerge in a slightly lighter blue on the front. So very cool! Also, lots of sanding on this layout, as it's fascinating to watch the background color come through. If you haven't picked up any Core’dinations cardstock yet, I recommend doing so! It's fun to work with, and the possibilities are endless! Happy Scrapping!

Adorable layout. I idea of all three boys at about the same age is a good one.
