'Twas the day After Christmas!

We love to visit family friends on Boxing day. We have an afternoon of fun games, more food and lots of chatter. This year the older kids and active adults played volleyball for hours whilst the rest of us talked and watched Sophie and Benji have fun in this awesome paddling pool that was set up on the deck. Benji loved it so much that I would really like to get one for him but our friend didn't know where it had been bought from.
The December challenge at 'Show us your Stuff ' is to create a LO using the colours blue and white with a splash of red. These colours were great for my photos - though I think I used more than a 'splash' of red! As usual I had fun inking, masking and blotting over the background. My papers are a mix of OA with a touch of Studio Callico. The cool denim flower, canvass heart and red polka dot button are all from 'Purple Pumpkin'.

Seems very strange for me to read about people playing in a paddling pool on boxing day. Christmas has always been cold for me, I've never been on holiday to anywhere where Christmas is warm, so it's hard to get to grips with :D
Another lovely LO, love the misting :)
Happy New Year, thanks for all of your lovely comments this last year :)

What a fab fun page. Love the masking and the paint. Great use of the colors too. It is a sweltering 40 degrees here today in Melb so a paddling pool sounds wonderful to me...
