Just Because...

Happy Friday everyone,

Well after a good start to our morning...all housework, floors mopped, washing out etc done by 8.30am, I wandered over to my scrap desk and picked up two photos that I had lying around for ages.  So I began a layout...a just because layout...because I wanted to.....

I love you...

Just a very simple layout using a bit of paint, misting, stitching and love those Studio Calico fabric rips which I have had for A G E S.... and of course a Prima flower and my Flourish with a Bling.

This photo of Riley was taken nearly two years ago.  Riley use to love hiding under the laundry tub! He could fit under there with Finlay in it and the door shut!! I don't think he could do that!!

I am feeling inspired by these two challenges.   I wonder what one I should do!!.

Colour Combos Galore...
The Colour Room...

Have a great weekend :)
