Although it is imporatant to record the special events in our lives like birthdays, christmas and holidays it is the ordinary moments that I really love to record. This was one such moment. We were walking together to Sophie's school end of year disco and Benji and Sophie held hands and started to skip down the footpath together - Benji looking back every few skips to check that I was following. At the disco Sophie and her little friends treated benji like a life-sized doll. They danced in circles around him, fed him chippies, carried him from one side of the hall to the other and even got him doing the 'limbo' dance. It was such a lovely evening.
I used the sketch at 'Stuck' for this page - it is an a4 sketch so I adapted it for my 12x12 layout. My base paper is Prima and the rest is October Afternoon. I added paint and spray inks to my background to add interest and texture. I couldn't resist attaching the little balloon to Benji's outstretched hand by loops of string :)
