Scrap the Boys JULY

Hey there, although the theme is ocean I have gone with an ocean in winter photo. OK you can't see the ocean but we are there. We live in the northern suburbs of Perth, very close to Hillarys Boat Harbour. We used to like walking the dog (he's too old to go travel in the car now, but that's another story) there along the groin. Ben would always walk along the top of the groin while the dog and I stuck to the footpath. I love this photo of my son with the beautiful blue sky for a background. I have gone for a  nautical theme rather than really beachy because it's a photo taken in winter. I used some really old "wave" pp from Echo Park and nautical PL cards from Becky Higgins. Thanks for stopping by.

Stuck Sketches July 1st

Sometimes my son and I like to pop out of the house, on the weekend, for a spot of morning or afternoon tea. Sometimes we like to go to Krispy Kreme.

I have been waiting for an excuse to use my new Amy Tangerine ephemera (from the Better Together collection) and this was the perfect set of photos.

Instead of spotty patterned paper I went with a spotty doughnut under the main photo. I love the look of that Amy Tan patterned paper, it already reminded me of sprinkles. So what goes well with doughnuts, coffee of course (for me, not my son) and that Shimelle background pp of take away coffee cups felt like a perfect combo with the bright doughnut.

I love it when a plan comes together.
