Grin Full of Mischief
(ScrapBerry's DT & Berry71bleu April Challenge)

I decided to veer away from my usual shabby and romantic style to go grunge 
and create a very boyish page using one of my very favorite 
paper collections from ScrapBerry's called Edge of Town!

Not only are these papers absolutely gorgeous, they also seemed perfect for 
the April mood board on the Berry71bleu challenge blog.  The mood board
 inspired my use of the rusty, woodgrain, brick patterns and the metal accents.

I covered my chipboard and wood icons with black sand embossing 
powder to give them an old metallic effect to match the papers.

Below you can see a few ScrapBerry's embellishments that I found in my stash 
that fit in well with my page: a vintage unicycle metal trinket from 
the Vintage Circus set as well as epoxy dark orange epoxy stickers 
from the Around the World collection.  It goes to show how versatile 
ScrapBerry's embellishments are that you can mix and match 
products from different lines for a single page.

Here is a close-up of these fabulous patterned papers!

And the star of my page is baby Tristan, my friend's son, from a few years back!

I am thrilled on how my layout turned out, and that is thanks 
to Berry71bleu inspiration and ScrapBerry's Edge of Town collection!

I would love to hear what you think!
