Double page scrapbook layout

My son's Christening: Started this before the summer and finally got round to finishing it, I think?! All papers, apart from the title, started as white and were coloured by stamping and sponging with Distress Inks in Dusty Concord, Tattered Rose and Shabby Shutters.Main band of paper was embossed by hand-drawing the pattern with a Zig embossing pen and embossing with clear powder and then rubbing the Distress Ink over with a make-up sponge.Une double-page du baptême de notre fils en 2001. J'ai fait toute le coloration des papiers avec encres 'Distress' et aussi j'ai l'embossage à la main avec un stylo embossage transparente et poudre transparente donc il résiste l'encre.

Title font cut with 'Fancy Pants' Cuttlebug alphabet; rub-ons by WH Smith (UK newsagents!); flowers and spacers from Tina (thank you again, I love them), ribbons from local market.
