100% Boy......

....even if he does choose to wear his girl cousin's shades!!!!

There is a beaut of a sketch over at Life Paper Scrapbook this month, and this little photo of DGS was calling to be used :D

There is lots of fiddle farting around on this one....playing without thinking!! So here goes:

The chipboard glasses are from a collection I bought on sale by Farmhouse Paper Co (a new one to me!) A few MME stamps with Versamark Ink...uber bright!

You will have seen me mention my mate Lizzy many times here on my blog. She is queen of mess (in more ways than one!!!) and loves to play with various mediums. She has been using Gelatos for a while now and I love what she does with them. She sent me a pack for my birthday so that I could play too....yay!! Here I have mixed the red with some yellow paint and glass bead gel and then used it with a Crafters Workshop stencil. I am hooked so will just have to get the rest of the's only right, don't you think????

Another of my sale purchases was this transparency sheet from it! Another couple of MME stamps :)

Now this may not look that special to you but it is significant to me. This title was in a set that I bought 5 years ago!! It was a Cosmo Cricket kit from QVC and I bought 3 to make DGD's first year albums (I know people, this was in the very early days!!!) Anyway, I can remember thinking that I would never have a use for this embellie and gave the other 2 away but kept this I am 5 years later using it for my boy :)

the background is a Heidi Swapp stencil and Color Shine (my favourite mists, by a mile!)

Here is the sketch that inspired it all:

Thanks for popping in today,
