Hello there,
I hope your day is going great!

I am just popping in to post my layout for this months challenge for SHOW US YOUR STUFF which is to use this sketch..
and use some mixed media...  Well I could not resist that challenge! I took a couple of photos of my layout as I was creating it as sometimes I end up covering up most of the back ground... just so you can see the mixed media I have used..

 I got my page and stuck all sorts of die cuts that I had cut out but hadn't used.. then covered the lot with gesso, did some misting and added some stamping.and some netting... then flicked some gesso around the page..

 And I set this aside to dry overnight.

Then I layered my photo and placed it on the page..

some closer views.

A gorgeous Charms heart in my cluster..

We dont remember days, we remember moments..

I enjoyed created this one..
Thanks for your visit and thanks so much for the lovely comments you leave me too..

Hello there!
 I havent fallen off the earth if you have missed me, I had a little holiday at the beach last week.. We had a lovely time at Coolum on the Sunshine Coast. My parents came with us and for the first time ever we took our dogs. It was wonderful to take our pooches for a walk along the beach each afternoon, good for them, and good for me too to get some exercise.. the beach is a dog friendly one and it is doggie heaven! and so good to watch the dogs and owners play on the beach together..

This is when we first arrived after travelling for more then 3 hours with one stop on the way..

And that is my DD with our dogs, we were not sure about letting them off the leash, they were quite happy to be on the lead with us..  They loved the water but had to get used to not drinking it!!!

So that was us last week, home now and trying to catch up with the washing and all that doesn't get done while we were away!!

I did create a layout for the SCRAP THE BOYS CHALLENGE SEPTEMBER before we went on holidays so I had better put it in a blog post before this week disappears quickly too!

It is to create a layout with you and a male in it.. I chose to use a photo of my son and I.  I came across this quote too, not sure now where I got it from but I thought it was a good one to use on my layout...

Some closer views.

Lots of stencilling chipboard and dies..

My Son.
I love that quote.. and no matter how old my son gets, he will always be my little boy (in my heart cos he is taller than me now!!!)

Thanks for coming by, the days just seem to get busier. Thanks so much for the lovely comments you take the time to leave me too.. Have a great day!
