Playtime Fun

Day one of the four day weekend has begun and I am exhausted at lunch time! I have always had respect for pre school teachers but the more time I spend with my three year old the more amazed I am that they are not dropping with exhaustion!

I have been trying to finish off my older kits before starting new ones but the urge to play with some of the papers in Neverland overcame me. I had just broken up my January kit remains when I worked on this layout so I can almost justify my choice.

Life Paper Scrapbook has regular colour and sketch challenges. I liked the look of the current sketch so decided to have a go.

Here is the sketch: 
And here is my take on it.

I initially attempted to add some ink and try some  masking but it was not very successful. I covered it with my papers and was quite surprised to see how much the paper had warped a couple of days later when I decided to photograph the layout. The papers are all from the Neverland kit. I am in love with the KesiArt paper with the tear drop A side and the hot pink B side. I definitely would love more of that particular paper.

I included a couple of repeating embellishment clusters.

I am not entirely sure where the washi is from but the little puffy stickers are a special Amy Tangerine SC collaboration  along with a couple of Basic Grey enamel dots.

These photos are about nine months old and are from an outing to the Botanic Gardens for a picnic. We had intended watching a band perform but it was so crowded in that part of the garden that we settled down in a quiet spot and Miss Three and her  Daddy played some soccer. It wasn't long before MT had a new friend joining in.

I hope you are having a great week.
