Sometimes I like watching you play

 There have been a few pages involving me recently and my DH took this shot of me - and I like it (maybe it's cos I have my back to the the camera LOL).  I am sat watching my kids and their cousins having a go in a Canadian canoe at our local lake, I was in charge of supervising the kids on the bank and feeding them whilst the boys took them out in the boat.

I am still trying to perfect my misting, so this is the 2nd go at misting (I should show you the back of the page :)) - I masked a strip down the middle and then used a doily mask and spritzed some yellow and green - I wanted a subtle mist effect - still not quite perfect but I am learning.  I then dug out my prima pixie glen stamp and cut a circular hole in a sheet of paper and stamped out a circular image, I also did 2 smaller 1" circles (used a punch) and stamped those in the diagonally opposite corner with some tattered rose distress ink.  I used up some more of my Scrap Rat August papers for this - Echo Park Victoria Gardens, and cut out lots of the roses, then added some rectangular pieces and a a doily - and a journal tag giving the details behind the photo.  A few Martha Stewart butterflies (they have to be one of my most used punches), some liquid pearls and stickles - and a quote off the echo park papers and this is what I came up with.  The title is part hand written and the other part authentique stickers.  So quite a girly LO for me, and a good bit of white space I have resisted adding anything more as I'm not sure what to add....so here it is for now.

The Scraprat September kit is out now, so click here to go and see it (there are canvas shapes and crate paper chipboard lots of lovely things) and click here to see what the design team have come up with.
