Saturday magic

Just a quick post today as I'm expecting the grandchildren to arrive any moment. So excited!

Today's challenge entry is for The Memory Nest and it's a scrapbook page.  The photo is a real vintage on of my three boys when they were still small and cute - now they're still cute but all taller than me.  I love chevron paper so this challenge was exactly my sort of thing and the colours are so joyfully summery I just couldn't resist.

Yay! I was featured at the Memory Nest.  First badge and am super delighted!!!!! Look here and here for the link.


Paper & card: Tim Holtz, background & scraps from my stash
Ink: Ranger Distress Ink, frayed burlap; Mister Huey's color mists, sunshine & opaque white
Stamps: Molly Blooms, stitching, My Mind's Eye, the sweetest thing; Technique Tuesday, Good Times & Beautiful
Alpha: AC Thickers, Iguana
Embellishments: buttons from my stash

Thanks for looking.
