Crafting for all Seasons #76 "Lots of Layers"

Good morning all.
Own up...who pinched April!! I can't believe it's May tomorrow, this month has just disappeared! Thanks to those who've asked about me, I'm fine just a bit tired and run down after the virus and also really busy so me time has been on the back burner for a few weeks.

Today it's time for our next challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is "Lots of Layers". We're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. We're being sponsored by Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet who gave the DT images and papers to work with.

I've used the pre-coloured version of Baby Gangstaz Joel from Reeces Scrap Pieces and printed it several times so I could decoupage it. The backing paper is from Crafter's Companion's Camden Town and was on the disc which came free with the winter magazine. Dies are all from Spellbinders. Sentiment is computer generated and happy birthday is from my stash.
My Godson will be 13 in the summer so this will be perfect for him.

Fabulous Sponsor 2014
