Sweet sweet summer

Remember my scrappy lesson at Christmas time?  Well, this was my first attempt at trying it at home.  Promise me you won't laugh!!  ;-)  I don't have the range of products available to me, so I had to improvise just a little...


I've created this for the current Scrap The Boys challenge:
This month the challenge is to scrap a layout featuring your son's favourite holiday/summer activity and use that to inspire your layout!

 
 
I've used texture paste over a mask, painted over the top with glimmermist, but I think I used a bit much :S ... anyway, live and learn ;-)
 
See, there's a Rainbow Splendour big red felt flower there too!!
 

 
 and just a 'few' sequins :-)
 
Thanks for visiting!!  I'll share my other pages from Christmas time soon, I promise :D
