Lucy's ABC's and 123's

Hey Peachies!!!! How are you all on this beautiful Sunday? Last night as the kiddos slept I had some time to craft woohoo. lol And since I had just gotten my Peachy Package in the mail I HAD to craft with the ABC's and 123's. I am simply IN LOVE with them!!!
So lemme show you and then I'll tell you what I did...
Nothing really super fancy going on but I love it! So I knew I wanted to focus on the picture (thanks Instagram) and my beautiful kiddos. (I know I'm totally partial) ;)  And when I make layouts of all of my kids together I have to be careful I don't lean toward pink (because I really like pink). So I decided to go with grey, turquoise and orange as the main colors with some yellow and red thrown in the mix.
I knew I had to do something really fun with the background so I just used a plain grey cardstock base. I started at the bottom and a regular sized ruler and made a black line about every inch and a half. I left the top blank because the initial idea was to put the title there but I didn't like how it looked so I added a decorative strip there. Next I inked up my beautiful stamps with Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink and went to town. The letters are about an inch apart. You cant see it because i covered some of them up but the entire background has the entire alphabet on it. This was sooo much fun to make and I really want to see what you all make with these so when you get them in please share!!!
Here's a list of What was used:
Ink- Tim Holtz Black Soot
Embellishments- handmade embellishment using various circle punches, prima flowers, buttons, Thickers, Cosmo Criket tiny type and gems (Basic Grey)
