Up To No Good

Hello everyone! It's another public holiday here in Malaysia, and I get to slack at home and do nothing, yay! 

This is the last layout I made in year 2013, and it's about the 3 kids in my life. This layout captured their mischief and it's another fun topic to scrapbook, but I had a hard time coming up with a nice title, until I saw one layout with a famous phrase from Harry Potter (sorry I couldn't recall where I found that layout),

I Solemnly Swear that I am Up To No Good

I didn't have any journaling on this layout, and I've kept embellishments to a minimum (for my standard, anyway). I have chosen 3 spots as my visual triangle and decorated each with a wooden monkey that my sis bought for me on her trip to Bangkok (yes, those kids are like monkeys sometimes, too playful indeed). I added the kids' initial beside the monkey and did a little embellishing.

Big Brother, ZY

Only Girl, YL

Baby Brother, ZE

The background patterned paper is from one of the Studio Calico kits. I think the bright orange and stars pattern are a good match for kids related layout. The photos are backed with another 2 different patterned papers and some vellum. 

Final Look
When I trimmed the manufacturer's strip from the background patterned paper, I didn't get a clean trim, my blade was a bit dull. So I used scissors to do a little bit more trimming, that was when I didn't get a straight cut and I decided to make the four edges uneven by cutting them not straight, on purpose. It's difficult to tell from the photo, I think.
