My Boys

"My Boys", A sketch taken from the nearest scrap store in Carins. They do a challenge every month.
"Scrap Therapy" 
The boys are my sisters' children, Edward and Ethan. I wanted to leave a bit of me when I left, and of course such little adorable monkeys they are.....just love them to bits. I sure am going to miss playing dinosaurs  bad man and getting all the latest info explained top me.....I won't be missing the Macky's ice cream that I got addicted too!
The paper I  used is brought out through Stampin' new project...hahaha

I have tried something new here. Using the basics....card stock. design paper and gesso. The back ground is made with masks and gesso, using the bingo and the ink splatter design from "Work Shop". Circles punched out of design paper done the same as the back ground. The numbers are fancy cut from the design paper and flowers cut with dies. Below are a few more close ups to enjoy.

I hope you had fun.  I am blogging on  borrowed wi-fi over here, I am now in New Zealand catching up on friends and family ( So much to do and so little time to do it. ) so my blogging will be even worse than it was!
The good news is, I shall be home in about 3 weeks, so I shall get over the jet lag then get back into the routine.....hopefully!
Have a scrappy day, scrappy love Susan.
PN: A special hi to all my new made friends in OZ.
