Scrap the boys- oct

Hey bloggers, I'm sharing a layout today for the STB challenge.
the challenge for october is to
 "use HANDMADE BOY EMBELLISHMENTS on your layout,  you may use purchased handmade products, however please feel free to make your own!!!"
I used some embellishments from 'a lil somethin' (the flags) and a 'Charms Creations' lolloipop.
I used this cute resin 
Prima mushroom i got last week. Just dipped it in some distress stain
to colour it. Those tags/tickets are from 'a lil somethin' aswell.
 and the cogs are from 'purple pumpkin'.
Not bad, I used three different types of handmade embellishments. :)

I also used this brick mask from Prima, a Tim Holtz mask, and some punchinella
to achieve the background texture. Last weekend I saw the super talented 
Kerry Murray use this fabulous 
technique where she layered her masks and stencils.
I wanted to try it our and here it is. I'm pretty happy with the 
end result. 
Cheers everyone, hope you all have a great week.
thanks for all the lovely comments you leave me.
