7/100 'I'm Reviewing the Situation'

Another beaut of a sketch at the fabulous ScrapFriends.....oh how I love them :0)

Another lo for DGS' scrapbook and an homage to his great great grandfather who starred in Oliver!.....hence the title :0)

This little man fills my heart with pure joy. I am so lucky to have him living with me in these early weeks. Our bond is getting stronger and stronger.....and best of all???? He thinks I sing like an angel!!! For those with a more discerning musical ear it is like a cross between a yowling cat and fingernails on a blackboard but both my Grandies think I am a marvel when I belt out a show tune or two :0)

More loveliness from my CKC kit

stamp is Scraptastic Kit Club, button is American Crafts (v old) Journal card was cut on my Silhouette and matted onto PP Portfolio paper and typed on! Arrow is painted SC wood veneer

chevrons were cut on Silhouette, more painted SC wood veneers. The rubber love tag is soooo old, it feels great to finally be able to use it!!
I really enjoyed creating this layout. Lots of fiddling with bits and bobs :0)

Thanks for popping in today,
