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.

Sing Lil Bird - Scrap Around the World October Challenge

Morning Everyone

It's so nice to be able to not rush this morning.  I am off for 2 days, as it's school holidays and so decided to spend some time with my son. A great way to start a week! ;-)

So he is sitting here eating his breakfast and I am just quickly doing this post.

I finished a page for the October Scrap Around the World Challenge....
The mood board is really super.

The inspiration from the mood board, was that picture of the girl with her eclectic shorts and I immediately thought of the Zip-A-Dee-Doodle collection from BoBunny, as well as the colouring.
The sentiment was also so gorgeous and I have had these photo's of Joe for a long time now and it fitted perfectly.  The puzzle pieces cam together quickly! ;-)

So here is the page.

These photo's were taken in 2012 when Joe was still at nursery school and they had a end of year concert.  He was dressed as a Macaw and had to sing and dance with his class.  They were all sorts of animals. He really did sing and dance and was not afraid to do his part.  It was really so precious!
So hence the title....Sing Lil Bird.

These little birdies at the bottom of the page just fitted in so perfectly with this theme.

I had to include this photo, which shows his little tail feathers.  He couldn't stop waving it around!!

This is a close-up of the journalling. Isn't that the sweetest little face?!

I did some gesso, stencilling, watercolouring and stamping on the background. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a super day!
