This Day in Pictures

Have you checked out the 'Life, paper, Scrapbook' challenge blog? If not you really should as there is some incredible inspiration to be had over there.
Last month I entered their sketch competition and was thrilled to win a guest designer spot on the blog. here is my page and the sketch that it is based on. I really loved the sketch. It has such a fun feel that I thought it would be perfect for these fun photos that I had taken of Sophie and Benji at a local indoor playground.
Now there is a good story behind the background on this page. My son wanted me to teach him some mixed media techniques to use on a gift for his girlfriend. So I got out my stash of inks and masks and we had a play together. The result was the background to this page :))) I simply layered some bright papers to mat the photos and added some fun embellishments.

Here are a couple of close-ups and finally a picture of my gorgeous 20 year old son creating his gift for his girlfriends 21st :)

Have a great weekend :)
