Watermelon - 7 Dots Studio Jan Challenge

Hello Everyone

Apologies for not posting for a few days but we have had a problem with our telephone and data line, which is still not resolved but I at least today have another option!

So I will be brief....LOL and show you the page I created for the 7 Dots Studio January Challenge.

Appreciating the little things in life....

Here's my take.

I am really so pleased with how this page turned out and love that it's a real boy page! ;-)

This is my journalling and tells you the story of these photo's.  Joe certainly loves his watermelon!!
I love that I was able to capture this sweet moment and watch as the juices ran down his face and was adorable! These are certainly the moments that are really so special! ;-)

There is lots of paint, stamping, gesso and stencilling.

The chipboard is Blue Fern Studios...I really loved the honey comb bits and also the notebook edges...such super pieces.

Thanks for stopping by...
I really do appreciate the visits!
Have a super evening!

  4. Hi Denise, I've been MIA for a few weeks; back now and trying to visit my favourite blogs. What a treat to see this joyous boy's page with the strong colours and great use of chipboard. Jo seems to have grown about 2 inches over the summer. Love the red and grey with the MM. TFS

  5. Great pictures and a stunning layout. The colours actually say watermelon. You must be thrilled with this one !

  6. It is indeed a lovely boys page with a little hint of grunge.... I love watermelon too and reading what you wrote made me giggle - remembering exactly that... not an easy fruit to eat if you want to remain clean.
