Choosing Your Name

I had a fun time doing a few challenges for a crop over at My Scrapbook Nook last weekend and when I saw the challenge to do a LO about a name I knew it was perfect for something that is STILL driving me crazy. 

This sweet little boy is STILL nameless.  Now...I know, I know...we've got time, but goodness it's hard for me to let it go!  lol.  Our kids have always had a name by the time we found out if it was a boy or girl...but not this little dude.  

So I wanted to record some of the names we've talked should be really interesting to look back at in a few years and see what we were thinking of and what we ultimately ended up naming him.   

I dry brushed some white acrylic paint to the background so that my journaling would show up and then used some tiny alphas from MLS for the actual names.  

The cardstock behind "your name" is from Pink Paislee and it's got a nice glaze over parts of it that I wanted to utilize so I sprayed it with a few different colors of glimmer mist and then wiped off the glazed parts which resisted the misting.  

I also laid some stars down on my canvas and misted over them to use for the mat of the photo. you have any names you'd like to suggest?  I'm all ears!!!  lol

ETA - I've realized that if I CAN talk Tim into naming this little dude Alistair I spelled it wrong on this LO!  lol.  Oops.
