My Little Shoebox, wheeeeeeeeeeee

I've been hoarding these papers for AGES now, how bad of me :( they are actually from my win from 2Peas :)

Finally after moving rooms and rediscovering all things I love :) I decided to have a play around

Little Grub Boy - My take on the My Little Shoebox Sketch for January. Loved the sketch but decided to alter it a little and only used one photo instead of the two. Thought that worked well for a journaling spot. Zac the outdoors man, he LOVES it when Pa is home from work and I don't see him for those 4-5 days, except for Breakfast and Tea. Goes away clean and comes back covered from head to toe in dirt, oil, grease. I love that he loves it.

Joy - While I had all the papers out I quickly threw together this layout of Adam. I quiet like the pink through out this. Works great with the colours in the photo. Had a little fun with my stamps too :) how adorable are those birds *sigh* so glad birds are still 'in' and I LOVE my tree too. Super fast embellie thats for sure.

Thanks for stopping by

I'm planning on hitting the desk tomorrow so be on the look out for some fun new creations over the weekend
