ham and cheese *flying unicorn*

A LO is a rare treat in my scrap room!

I've been wanting to do this "ham and cheese" LO since this summer! The papers are a mix of Vintage Blue by Glitz Design, I Believe by Riddersholm, and Oct 31st by Fancy Pants. You can find all these in the Flying Unicorn store! I scraplifted the Flying Unicorn Artist of the Week: Tracy. Tons of fabulous inspiration in her gallery!

Haven't done handstitching in quite awhile. Got a wild hair, I guess. On my boy LOs, I love to have the thread ends showing on the top. Adds a bit of whimsy.

The journaling. I always journal. Mistakes are okay :) I almost always use Micron pens. 
Black is my favorite.

"OH BOY!" is a sticker from Echo Park's Little Boy. The pointer is a stamp from Phantom by Pink Paislee, available at Flying Unicorn. I love pompom trim. I think it's from Beach Babe by Fancy Pants. But, more importantly, it's from my BFF Krissy's stash :) Oh, and that embossing border punch by EK Success? Also from her stash.

Title created with Basic Grey letter stickers and dymo labeler.  The brocade print paper is from I Believe by Riddersholm, available at Flying Unicorn. I LOVE all things Riddersholm! The die cuts are from Storybook, cut with the Expression.

For the die cuts, I inked the edges in brown, embossed with a houndstooth embossing folder/Cuttlebug, and topped with brown, blue, and green chalk inks. The fuzzy creature is a sticker from 
Recollections by Michael's.

Did some misting and masking here. Used a bubbly glimmer screen and yellow glimmer mist. The doodly thing is a rub on from The Paper Studio. The "boys rock" barcode is a rub on from Fancy Pants.

Dude... I forgot to add my signature brads! Huh.

your title for them is super cute... I can imagine by looking at the pic what laughs *Ham & Cheese* must bring to life.
