The challenge this month over at S J Crafts is "About the Boy". I had these pics in my pile watching to be scrapped and I remember thinking around the time they were taken (last May) that Louis and I had come a long way since our tricky beginnings together. We love to spend time with just the two of us (pretty difficult!) but we have become friends who enjoy each other's company (most of the time!)
I used the awesome This and Echo Park "This and That-Charming" collection and some stunning new washi tape from Cosmo Cricket, but the added challenge was to use older stuff from your stash too. The 3 pieces of chipboard are from an old mini album kit but the colours and style fitted really well. The cardstock is pretty old from a bumper set and the gems are pretty old too! I mixed white acrylic paint with some Glimmer Mist for a pop of colour and interest - lets not talk about how underused and unloved my mists are...
So now its over to you. Something masculine or about boys / men and something older from your stash - easy peasy. Upload it to S J Crafts blog by the middle of June and you could be in the draw for some mini ink pads. Go. Get busy!
Bye for now
