Priceless, and some exciting news!
On our recent trip overseas we experienced a 24 hour delay. United airlines apparently couldn't find any hotels in the whole of LA to put us up and all 300+ passengers had to sleep on the floor of the departure lounge. Despite everything my 7 and 3 year olds had an absolute ball! It was all part of the big adventure for them! - and their dad seemed to be having just as much fun as they were :)
I loved the sketch at 'Sketches with a Twist' this month and the 'twist' was doodling (which I almost always include on my pages anyway!). I was going to use a plain cardstock background until I saw this stripy paper in my 'Cakewalk' collection. It matches benji's jacket perfectly. Being such a bold print though it was very hard to work with. At first I used my bubble wrap stamp and white paint to create an area of contrast around my photos but I found that the photos still got lost in the print. That's when I tried the black paint and it worked much better for the page. My elements are a mix of 'Cakewalk' and ''Sidewalk' (I love how all the October Afternoon collections work well together). Don't you just love that game spinner die-cut?
Now for my exciting news - I am delighted to be a new member on the Design team at 'Kraft it up'(Thanks so much Mel!!). Do come over and ckeck out the new challenge tomorrow and have a go yourself. There are great prizes to be had :)))
