Friday

Never a dull moment when these two are around...*winks*


Never-a-dull-moment

You are know how entertaining kids can be...there's never a dull moment when littlest nephew J and niece S are around. :) The 4 year old recently discovered the merits of using his baby sister as "leverage" to get his fabulous aunt [aka me *lol*] to comply to his little whims....



"Gu Gu, Sophie wants to [insert things he wants like watch a cartoon, go to the playground etc]....."

It is hard to say "no" when they just look so cute together. He would hold her hand and they would go down the slide together...[All together now, "Awwwww..."] *LOL*



I had fun with my Blue Fern Studios chipboard pieces on this layout. They were all coated with a layer of gesso first.....
1. Coloured with Faber Castell gelatos
2. Covered with a thick layer of Liquitex glass bead gel
3. Painted with Daler-Rowney acrylic gold paint


Playing along with Sketchbook 365 and Scrap Africa.

P/s: Happy weekend friends!:) I would love for you to come play along with my guest Ashley's patterned paper challenge and LESSology Challenge #29: Birthday Party :)

*Edited* This layout made Top 3 at Scrap Africa! :)
