Is it Bad...... ?

... to have favourites??

Sort of like picking a favourite child... a bit tabu!  lol  ... but, at the risk of sounding like a complete fat head, i really do have a soft spot for this 1st May layout i did for Stuck?! this month.  It was prompted by a sketch i did too, which was probably why it came quite easily to me:

{you amaze me}

Maybe it's the combination of that AWESOME sass pp (i absolutely LOVE it) and the melissa frances resin products.... so yum!  That photo of my littlest man was actually cropped from a much larger photo and therefore almost overlooked.  i just love the expression.




a little bit of bo bunny gabrielle in there too, which is just totally loveable....  :))

oh, and here is the sketch again... just in case you feel compelled to give it a go  ;)


Another day on the sports oval today for DD#2's regional athletics team selection trials...  :))
Hope you are all having a good one!

See you soon with some more shares.

cheers

I have been waiting to see your fab creation from that awesome sketch and Miss J, you didn't let me down. Like totally awesome girl (said in my skater voice).
And with regards to favourites, we all have them at some stage, even if we don't admit it, even with the kiddies. I am trying to get a few more DS1 LOs as he always seems to be left out. Maybe because they loose their cuteness by 9.....just kidding, more because he won't take a pic for me.

Kim said...

Propped up my chin in good time before logging in to check out your blog, knew it would hit the desk in a milli second otherwise. I've been totally shamelessly scraplifting your awesome techniques in my layouts of late, hope you have seen the credit I have made sure to give you. There is something special about torn and ripped muslin and the feel of the pulled-out threads squashed into a nest. Now the lady in the haberdashery around the corner knows exactly what I want as soon as she sees me come in LOL! THANK YOU for being such an awesome inspiration Jules and yes, your little man is seriously cute but don't tell him :))

Cathy said...
