Jax Sketchabilities #104

Meet my adorable new grandson Jaxon James Browning. He finally made his appearance (ten days overdue) on Nov. 30th at 11:23 am after a very long night of horrible back labor. Unfortunately my daughter Jessie had to undergo a Caesarean section as Jax's heartbeat kept dropping but both mother and baby are doing fine.

 Isn't he priceless! Biased grandma that I am lol. I used Maja Design Vintage Basic Spring for this layout. This layout was based on sketch #104 from Sketchabilities.
 
 Did a some dry brushing with Gesso for the base and then added paint splatters in various colors. I also used a Bo Bunny and Kaisercraft stamp before I applied the paint. You can also see some moulding paste here.
My little banner held up with two heart brads from Prima's delight collection.
Additional masking done with a Chevron mask and some moulding paste. You can expect to see many layouts featuring this little guy as he lives only six houses away from me! :) I can't wait for the holidays when I am taking my two oldest granddaughters for two weeks the pictures I plan on taking of the three of them together! Well that's it for now.
 
We are getting creamed with snow flurries! Got a foot overnight and it is coming down fast and thick. Apparently we are going to get 35 cm every twelve hours! Ah life in the North. At least I got my hot bath in and a coffee in hand before we lose the power (if we lose the power). All the best! :)
