Eclectic and gorgeous!!

I’m just loving Jessica’s 2 new collections – Suigeneris Beach which is a LIMITED edition, and also Unamused Boys… So boyish. So textured. So grungy. So ME!!

I got this gorgeous candid photo of DS2 this weekend on our walk – stomping across the bridge.Journalling reads:
A little game that I used to play
with my mother was the Three Billy
Goats Gruff crossing over the troll bridge.

Now, as a mother, I love to watch my
boys stomping across all the
bridges they can find.

Papers and elements from Suigeneris Beach Collection by Jessica Bolton. Alpha from her Unamused boys collection (available separately). Arrow from Jess’s painted arrows set. Fonts used are Hotel Coral Essex, Vaguely Repuslive and VTPortable Remington. Created in Cs2.

None of these photos turned out very well (shock horror!) but they were too cute not to use… our SMALL 6 year old DS likes to take on more than he can handle (eg, his father!) and it’s so much fun to watch!Papers, elements and green alpha from Jessica Bolton (www.EclecticScraps.com) new Unamused boy kit. Tater Masher stamp also by Jessica. Messy paint strokes by Meredith Fenwick,at SBB. Stamped alpha by Nancie over at ScrapArtist. Dotted journalling stamp by yours truly!

Font used is Highland Perk. Inked action by AtomicCupcake, created in Cs2.

Contrary to popular comments on the first layout, I didn’t duplicate the photo for the journalling, but actually cut the bottom off another photo that didn’t turn out quite so well… but I still love the effect. Something a bit different.

I really thought that with starting work (I’ve already done 9 hours this week, with a FULL day on Saturday still to come) I’d be tired, burned out, whatever. But I actually think that having the time out of the house is letting my right brain come up with ideas because I feel so inspired… Look, I even put more than one photo on a layout, and how often does THAT happen? rofl…

But now I should go and eat lunch, clean my house etc etc. It’s a beautiful sunny day, I need to go ENJOY it!Happy Crafting - Cassie.
