Moments Together

Hello! I played along with a couple of fun challenges. There is a black & white challenge going on at the Flying Unicorn Forums and it was so fun to do! I have never made a black & white layout and it actually came together faster than I thought it would. 

I knew I wanted to use my 13arts Fly Away collection because of all the lovely black & white (& All is Lovely: Big Love background paper) so I also played along with their lovely sketch challenge (plus use butterfly & 2 mediums). I added two butterfly rub-ons and fussy cut one sitting on top of the flowers. I added black acrylic paint to some gel medium and made the black lines, painted the papers, flowers etc with some gesso, and sprinkled gesso & black glimmer spray over the page. 

My husband is not into his picture being taken so it was surprising when he said lets take a picture at a booth in the mall in 2007. It was a sketch picture with a silly background but I treasure it because it was his spontaneous idea. So sweet. Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

Just the two of us

Hi! I played along at Once Upon A Sketch for their July challenge. The challenge is to use the sketch and the journaling theme numbers. I chose 'Just the two of us' for my title. The journaling is a hidden tag above the picture. 

It reads: I always push you on the swing and and on this day you asked if you could push me. It was so funny. I had to keep reminding you to back up as I went higher so I didn't knock you over. We has a couple of close calls. I enjoy our time together. Just the two of us.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello! I played along with Sketchabilities sketch #118 and CSI case file #129. For my evidence in the case file I used a silver metal (geoclip), and chevrons. And for the testimony, I documented this meal (hidden journaling on the back). 

It reads: This picture was taken at Granny and Sydneys 50th Anniversary dinner. We had it in a private dining room at a local restaurant. It was a very lovely evening with lots of smiles, laughter, and good food. By the time the champagne and cake came out, all of us were so full. Except for you boys. Aunt Kelly and Uncle Tom brought the cake, so Finn was asking about that cake throughout the whole meal. Cake is always the best part of the meal for a three and five year old! Both of you were so happy when it came. That was the quietest we saw both of you all night! Your face says it all. Mmm...CAKE!! 

Thanks for stopping by!
