Scrap the Boys - August Challenge

Good afternoon!  This is going to be a super quick post before I pick up my eldest son from school... while his little brother is chilling in his favourite spot (on the couch watching telly).  So I had my beautiful friend come over Friday night to spend some quality time together crafting.  I haven't been overly crafty lately, so I thought I would do a challenge to get my mojo happening.  Scrap the Boys August challenge was to do a monochromatic layout and also use some twine and chipboard.  Now, I must admit, monochromatic really isn't my style... but I did have a browse at the DT's work and VOILA!  Inspired!!!  The very last layout by Michelle got me thinking.  I had just bought a new Clifford book for Royce... and it happened to have stickers in the back... and my little boy is such a great sharer.  So with the inspiration from Michelle's layout and a very cute photo of Royce with a picture of Clifford he drew at kinder I set to work!

I was slow starting.. but in only one evening this was the result:

Sorry about the photos... They're a bit dull as it's really crappy weather atm.  And the close up of my chipboard letters really don't do them justice :-)  These look AWESOME in real life, even if I do say so myself :-D  Very simple... red paint, glossy accents and black texta around the edges.

Well that's it from me.  I better get organised for school pick up!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're having a terrific day!
