"Outdoor Fun"

We have had a very hot Summer here and my boys have just had such a great time, doing what they love!!! My boys love the surf, our youngest (featured here) has just purchased his first board with his own money and is sooo proud, I will feature that photo in due coarse!

With all this outside fun however, my scrapping has suffered considerably, for that I apologise! On the Up side I do have a heap of photos to last me a while.... be warned .... Summer could be a recurring theme here over the next few months!!!

This latest page features Scrap FX and Sawyers Place Tapes and Rounds:

I used some summer brights & barbed wire tape from Sawyers Place with the urban stencil from
Scrap FX to create a textured background. 
 I used a plastic bag & glimmer mist to add colour to the background and Viva decor crackle paste with the stencil and a bit of Gesso too. Had no idea what I was doing but it was fun just to play!

The wordlet and arrows are a new release that I treated with embossing powder and glimmer mist, I think the arrows could become a staple for me!!!
 The stencil from Scrap FX has so many "Bits" that can be taken from it, you do not have to use it as a whole. I used the bar code and arrows section and positioned them to suit!

The  "Today" circle is a round from Sawyers Place that I have had for a while and struggled to use, as I do not use a lot of pre made embellishments that I cannot alter to suit, but I am starting to broaden my horizons!!!  
 The little dots are Liquid Pearls..... a little obsession I cannot seem to shake!

Love the Barcode!!

An old Brad from Kaiser that I have had in my stash suits the page perfectly!
 I really have to leave it at that my friends so I can leave this computer and create some pages I have in my head.... a very busy head it is!!! So for now Goodbye, please stay tuned as I have a fun announcement and giveaway coming up that you all may be interested in at the end of the week! So be sure to pop back in now!!!!
