This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

A Day to Remember - Sketchabilities #120

Hello Everyone

I really loved the new sketch up at Sketchabilities and so just had to play along! ;-)

Here's my take on it.

This is just such a special page for me, because I don't often have photo's where Joe and I are together. So I loved that we had this photo taken, even though it took HUGE amounts of persuasion for Joe to sit still and also not pull funny faces! ;-) Little boys and ants in their pants!!!!

My journalling says this: It was such a mission to get you to sit still for 2min! You loved running amock outdoors, playing and fishing! You had such a ball! Old Millstream June 2014

We had a family weekend away at Dullstroom, flyfishing, and it was just a wonderful weekend for us all! ;-)

I used one of my favourite stencils and then did some painting....which I am sooooo loving at the moment.
On the circle chipboard I also did some crackle work.

On the chipboard leaves I added some white embossing and was thrilled at the result.

A close-up of my sweet boy and me! ;-)

I will rather add a list of goodies used, as I think this is easier to make sure I list them all.
