Everyday Moments....

Hello Hello :))))
Thought it was about time I brush the cobwebs away and pop back into my sadly neglected blog to share with you a quick little project I got up to over the school holidays.  School has been back for a week now but I haven't been well lately so I just didn't feel the urge to blog.

At the time I did this layout I just wanted to experiment, try different textures and techniques...

Monkey Business.... I have enjoyed recently going through my photos and coming across some everyday moments...always bound to bring a smile to my face and I love to think about those good times.  This photo on the layout was one of those times.  The boys had been given this game from their grandparents, and I remember sitting their playing with them soaking up all the little giggles and silliness that we were having while playing this game. So I wanted to reflect the fun we had this day on my layout, by having fun myself using lots of bits and pieces.

The background paper is some MME.  I scrunched and glued some tissue paper and put it over the top for a different look and texture. Hambly, washi tape, 7Gypsies tape and lots of Shimmerz products on this layout.

I have discovered a love for sequences and that black 'wirey' thing is actually some Prima Twisters, which I just coloured and twisted in my own way. Love it :))

And look what is about to arrive any day now.... can't wait!!!

Hope you are having a great week....thanks so much for visiting.
