Will you accept "payment" in the form of hugs and kisses?



Sean and Sophie

I love watching my oldest nephew S interacting with his baby sister S. She always has a smile for her big brother. :) He's my go-to guy when I need to run off to the washroom..."You're in charge!"...I wish he still accepted "payment" in the form of hugs and kisses though....*LOL*

Me: Thanks for looking after Sophie, Sean. Come...let me give you a big hug and some kisses!
Sean: Noooooooo! [runs away in horror!!!!]
Me: [Taken aback by the sting of rejection..regains composure] Okay, let's do something you like.
Sean: *big smile* Let's play with shrink plastic!


Some fun with a Prima mask, texture paste and mists [For how-to, please refer to tutorial: How to use texture paste to create a custom background).

I wanted to play along with the Get Picky challenge at Punky Scraps [grid, small photos, white paint, no pink].

Supplies: Crate Paper patterned papers, sticker and trim, American Crafts thickers, chipboard and ribbon, Maya mists, Prima mask, flowers, texture paste, white pen, brown pen.
