Terrific Two!!

From my experience my own children I have always found that two is no-where near as bad as its cut out to be. Infact I think that three is way more challenging. Our little Benji is just adorable at 2 1/2. Yes, he does have his moments of stubborn, negative behaviour, but the cute, charming, affectionate times far outweigh the not so good times!
The sketch at get picky this week is based on oval shapes. When I found these photos of benji just having fun in the garden in his oval-shaped hoop swing I thought that they would be perfect. I used bright yellow acryllic paint and Mr Huey's 'custard' spray inks on my white cardstock background. I stamped over the painted areas with my Kaisercraft grid lines stamp. Then I went to work layering strips of OA 'Sidewalk' paper underneath my photos. I added some clusters of circle shapes around the photos and completd the page with my title and journaling. The 'two' sticker has been in my stash since my now 7-year old daughter was 2. Just goes to show that it is possible to use up some of those older items in your stash that you can't believe you once thought were cool lol!!!

Love how you've used the strips of paper with the circles cut out ~ they look really neat. I like that 'two' sticker! And stamping over the paint spray is a great idea. Looks fantastic:):)

SUPER awesome!!! I agree - I found 2 years fine - 3 years was worse (but not that bad still!). :D
I really love that custard mist. I've never seen it before. Wow! You have rocked this challenge, Sarah! And that is so good that you got to FINALLY use that sticker - it must feel good hey? It would for me! I'd be like "yay" party time about that! LOL! It looks great too, when combined with all your funky details it looks "so hot right now"! Awesome work. Love this so much (in case you haven't already noticed!) Thanks so much for playing along with us!!! :D
