Love this!


I am not sure why Benji was grumpy on this picture but i do remember Adam trying his best to make him smile for my photo. He categorically refused but I took the photo anyway and I really love it!
I based my page on the sketch at Once Upon a Sketch.
 
I flipped the sketch upside down for my page. I replaced the flower clusters with inked and masked elements that matched my 'boy' photo better. I matted the single photo with strips of patterned paper from the October Afternoon 'Woodland Park' collection and lots of washi tape. I did add a couple of yellow flowers to the corner of my photo and balanced them with a yellow spotty button from Purple Pumpkin on the opposite photo edge.
Now for the fun part - I got to play with my new Silhouette Cameo. I cut the title and the cool sketched stars. I am so loving my new toy - especially the freedom that it gives when creating titles. There is no more frantic searching through my alpha stash for another 'e' or 't' to complete a word, I can simply cut out another - bliss! I am only just starting out with my Cameo and I know that there is so much more that it can do :))) So 'Thank you Santa for my early Christmas Pressie'.
Have a great weekend - so glad that it is Friday!!!!

Hey Sarah....yep..closer would be good!!! How's ChCh? Heading there for 6 days early December LOL...poor you...hope Mr Linky has started to behave...sorry I can't help you with that one, except it's NOT happening to me...so don't think it's a 'general' problem. Maybe he's sorted himself by now...hope so. DH is up watching the rugby...he's such a Kiwi!!!!
