A Lawn Day

Thursday, August 15, 2013

Well hello there!  It feels good to be back to regular scrapping and regular blogging.  I know my mojo isn't where I'd like it to be, but it's slowly getting there. That's why it was fun to create this particular LO for the Aug 15 reveal at About a Boy.  The newest challenge is Anything Goes.  I can even have a girl in the photo!

So that's exactly what I did. I chose a photo of my younger son and myself from a few years ago.

After a day in the pool, and dinner out, my Dad wanted to take my older son fishing in the pond. So I hung out in the grass with Little Dude. As tired as he was, he was just so pleasant and happy. At that time, he would rarely sit still, so for him to come sit in my lap was a treat.

The easiest way for me to get some mojo is to grab a collection pack. All the papers, embellishments and even alphas are all right there. No thinking involved, well, except which papers to choose...Anyway, I wanted something light hearted with a bit of whimsy, and this is what I came up with. I did use a stencil with mist as well as some gems, wood veneer and an extra journal tag & border. The rest is all from the same collection.  

It was nice to get away from my red, blue, yellow with buttons and do something a little different. Now let's see what you will come up with for the Anything Goes challenge at  About a Boy.
