Can't believe it's the 17th of the month - where on earth does the time go? The Waltzingmouse Blog Party has come around again and the theme for this month is 'Summertime fun.' I had thought of doing a Christmas card since, in Australia, it's the height of Summer (so wrong!) but then decided on a layout instead:
Summer makes me think of happiness, bright colours and heaps of fun and this pic of my eldest boy with ice-cream on his nose sums it up perfectly. The background was done with the border stamp from Asian Gardens. I've coloured in parts of it with a marker, then added some sprays of Glimmer Mist. For the centre of the sun I used one of the flower images from Folk Art Medallion, together with the circle image from the same set. To make the ice-cream cones I used the cupcake from Frame-it and layered the images together. I then added the cupcake icing to make the ice-cream. Finally, the journal spot is from Very Vintage Labels 4.
Anyway, that's enough waffling from me now....time to schmooze the gallery!
Enjoy the party and thanks for stopping by,
