Well it is week 2 at the Swirldoos Design Team Challenge (yes - amazingly I managed to get through the first round!)
The challenge this week is layering and whilst hunting for a photograph I found this one taken by my father in the mid 80s of my son (on the right) and his cousin, both aged around 7/8 years old. It has always been a favourite photograph and I was really pleased about scrapping it, but of course I then had to go down the masculine route - no layering with flowers, lace, butterflies or fancy flourishes!
I am still working with the kit which came last week. I added a few of my own papers and this lovely turqoise kraft core paper from the Nostalgic Collection. It is No. 9 if anyone can tell me what colour that is - I have to keep buying another pad just to get another sheet!
I did a bit of wobbly (on purpose) stitching around the inner sheets, but unusually for me there is no inking in this piece at all. So quite clean to put together.
I am having a few camera problems at the moment as my old point and click is sadly dying. So the colours don't look so bright in the top photograph. A new camera is on its way next week - I just hope I can cope with all the fancy menus!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend and are enjoying some more settled weather.
Thank you for looking x
