MME Cut & Paste 'Flair' layouts

Hi everyone and happy October to you all!  It's almost unbelievable but September came and went in the blink of an eye.  I was always of the opinion that once the year hits September, the clock starts ticking twice the speed until after Christmas! Lol! 
I totally ran out of time to share my last 2 layouts for The Scrapbook Store.  I was lucky enough to get one of the new MME Cut & Paste collections in my DT kit for September.  This one is called 'Flair' and I totally loved working with it. :)
Here they are.

This is my son after he got his first pair of glassed about 2 years ago.  It always is a challenge for me not to use flowers on my layouts, but I had great fun with this one.  I've used Dusty Attic 'Chicken Wire' chipboard, which I first coated in Gesso using my finger.  I then randomly dabbed a bit of black ink on it, covered it in random spots with glue before sprinkling Distress Glitter over the glue.  The cogs are wood veneer  pieces from WOW.

A bit of stencil work using a WOW 6 x 6 Alta Matz 'Chevron flowers' stencil and some Texture Magic

  The little man in the corner as well as my title were cut using my Silhouette Cameo machine.
Just a little owl from my stash and a wood veneer speech bubble from WOW.
The second layout is of my daughter and hubby posing for 'selfies' at her Year 12 Dinner last year. Lol! You can't take them anywhere!  I based this layout on the MME sketch for September.
 Some of the stickers in this collection and some washi tape.
I've used a Petaloo and Green Tara flowers for my cluster and the leaves were punched out using the Martha Stewart 'frond' punch.
The title is an old rubon from my stash.  I've created a bit of texture using several Crafters Workshop templates with Texture Magic and black Shimmerz Dazzlers Paint.
That's all I have for today, but I'll be back tomorrow with another post!  Lol!  Once I get going, you can't stop me! :)
Thank you so much for visiting.  Hope you are having a fabulous week!
Until next time.
M xx
