Hey Hi Hello.
This year it seems that Mother Nature has been away with the fairies a lil bit. The weather has been all over the place! For a few weeks, in the middle of winter there was glorious sunshine!! The kids and I took advantage of it as much as possible! And that is what this page is about.

The layout of this page was inspired by the August Sketch at My Creative Sketches. I altered the sketch to suit better, for example just the one large photo, but I believe you can still see the it.

I used the top semi circle to re-create the sun shine and lined it up with the glare in the photo itself.

I thought about many different titles for this page. Originally I was going to scrap it just cause I liked it, but decided to create more of a story about the weather to add meaning, then the title was going to be "Summer (in blue letters) or Winter (in red letters)" hinting at the switch of weather, however I made a mistake and stuck down the WIN in blue first. So decided to let the colour of the letters do more talking then the words.

The page is 90% American Crafts Amy Tangerine, with just a sticker and piece for paper from the another AC brand Dear Lizzy.

Another close up shots of the AC embellishments and fussy cutting and...

post done.
I am now heading to bed for a very early night to try and kick this flu which has began to creep up the day before our first ever, just for fun no real plans, holiday.
Thanks for coming by.
XoXoX Nicole.
