adventures

 This picture was taken a year ago - I've always loved it so much as both boys were not aware that I was taking the picture - they are busy looking at something whilst hanging over this wall.  The latest challenge over at Let's Get Shabby - to be inspired by the characters from Beatrix Potter - was the perfect opportunity to use it.  I have a Beatrix Potter book and Peter Rabbit buttons - yay - I can finally use them!
I think the little kittens are so cute - they have so much fun and get up to mischief - reminds my of my boys!
Here's some close-up's of the details:

 I've cut out some of the pictures from the story book - one matches the photo quite well with the kittens peering over the wall!  And I couldn't miss out using a Peter Rabbit button which I got from Lil Red Rocket some time ago.
 I've added in some roses and leaves and made a bunting with paper punches and twine.
Letters are by American Crafts and Adornit - love these little letters and one sheets lasts for ages!  I've used a Tim Holtz mask and glimmer-mist for the background.

I must say that I really enjoyed putting this one together........ and I've squeezed it thru just in time as the challenge finishes tommorow night.
Thanks for coming by and happy crafting.

Well you have just rocked this. I cannot believe how well that pic matches the photo. And how easily you have incorporated the theme into a LO. The details are just beautiful. I hope you win this, just priceless.
