a moment to smile

Hey, hope you are keeping well - I've had some time to get into a few challenges this month and it's been so nice.  Here I have a page to share for Bird is the Word - 'shadow' challenge!!
 This is a picture of my oldest on a recent camping weekend - he says that I never scrap about him :( - so I found this nice quote and teamed it with some Basic Grey.  When they get to teenagers, you can't really scrap all 'cute' any more, so I've made it fairly neutral and with a thought to ponder on ☺
The word 'shadow' has been included in the journalling!
So I've used lots of Basic Grey - Clippings collection on this page - a recent favourite of mine ☺
Here are some close-up's:
 ... a chipboard clock from Imaginarium Designs - have painted it white, then added some ink to the edges and a brad to the centre ... Manor House flowers sitting on burlap with a few cute Kaisercraft resin blossoms ...
 ... computer journalling - found this quote on the internet ...  some background stamping and inking using some circle stamps that I have ...  the main title is also stamped ...
... flair buttons from Paper Stories - oh I love these ♥♥

OK, so that's my page - I'm sure my boy will be smiling now ☺  Have a great weekend ☺
