Testing testing

When this post goes live I should be in Malaysia so this is a bit of an experiment. Let's hope it works. If not then I am well ahead of the game for next week.

I have not had quite so much crafty time the last two weeks as Tet has been in Taiwan and then Shanghai for work. We have a week of him at home and then he is off to India for a few days again. Sole parenting means that when I do have a little time to myself there is plenty of domestic duty type activity waiting for my attention. This layout was one that I wanted to make a start on. I just love the stencil paper and I knew that I wanted to use it twice at least but could not decide how best to do that.

In the end I went with a very bold background paper and changed it for a heart shaped piece in Scarlett's first and last initials - S and T (she actually has four but that is another story for another time). The lettering is form an older Echo Park collection called Playground.  Most of the other supplies are from the City of Lights kit from Studio Calico with the exception of the heart paper which is from the new Amy Tangerine Sketchbook line.

Scarlett loves the water - she is a Pisces after all. She has at least two showers or baths every day - in part because of the high humidity climate we live in and in part because she loves them. She has a ritual after each one which involves a nudey run through the house. For the sake of her dignity I have used a photo taken before she discarded her towel on this particular day.

Enjoy your weekend. I am planning to!
