Fun Starting Point

I was thrilled to see the new Shimelle Laine starting point appear in my reader this week. I had some free time this morning so I had a play with it.

I ended up keeping the layout pretty monochromatic with some pops of colour from the brighter chevron from On The Bright Side by My Mind's Eye. Most of the layout is made up of papers from my Studio Calico 35 mm kit and the Lomography add on. I also added some of the Dear Lizzy mason jars. I have saved a couple of sheets of this paper to cut out and it seemed to fit nicely with this layout.

The photo was from a casual weekend snack session at a local mall. Fresh fruit and fresh fruit juice are just what you need in our tropical climate. I love this shot of Tet and Scarlett sharing a juice. She has a really mischievous face. The title refers to something we say a lot... the you could be any one of the three of us. It is fair to say that Scarlett is a Daddy's girl though so it probably fits with this photo best!

I have another sketch on hand that I am going to start working on. This is my last day with a good chunk of crafting time this week as I am off to a goat farm on a field trip with Scarlett tomorrow and she has Friday off school. I have a feeling the goat farm could prove a great photography opportunity.
