My fingers have been distinctly lacking in ink these last couple of weeks. October is such a busy month in our family - birthdays galore, including my youngest son who turned 7 yesterday. I borrowed a friend's 7 seater car, filled it with a bunch of his closest friends and took them to a play centre. Let's just say that every form of bodily function was discussed between said boys and the trip ended with a very serious burping competition - which my son very proudly won. Not sure what that says about my mothering skills or his manners!
Speaking of little monsters, having a bunch of very sweet ones in my car reminded me of this little fella from the Paper Smooches set of the same name. I coloured him with Copics (annoyingly you can't see any of my shading in the pic - but it is there, I promise) added a swirl of twine and stamped and embossed a chevron background from Mama Elephant. I took my cues from the latest Time Out challenge pic and the latest Freshly Made Sketch. It also happens to fit in with the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge to use monsters in your project:
Enjoy your weekend!
