a magic time

 Hello - hope you are having a great start to this new week ☺
I have a scrappy share!!  I was inspired by the October sketch from The Scrapbook Store to create this page.

 I just love this photo of my boys with their dad - it was taken recently on a weekend away at the beach.  We were watching the sun setting and it was a beautiful time of day.
I haven't added in a lot of pattern paper.  I like to work with a white base and create my own backgrounds.  For this page, I've created a mixed media feel in the background.
The sketch shows circles, but I've chosen to keep my photo's rectangle!
Here are a few close-up's:
 I love the shine these gold sticker letters give - I've also added in some sequins too.
 I love wood veneers - these hot air balloons worked well on this page.
The background is a combination of:  paper circles, texture paste with stencil, water colour paints, mist and ink.

In between a lot of other projects and busyness of life, this is my second scrapbook page for October.  Not so many ..................... but I'm glad to fit some in ☺

Creating with love + happiness
