When Lenny visited his grandson last summer, they went fishing almost every day for nearly 2 weeks. They caught 1 fish.
Lenny tells me that it isn't about how many fish you catch. It is about the time they spend together on the lake, it is about the process, not the results. Hmm. Dillon sure looks happy with that fish.
Anyway, if they enjoy it, that is all that matters.
I used the March ArtfulDelight sketch for this layout. Most of the papers and many of the embellishments are from Little Yellow Bicyle's Saturday collection that I featured in this shopping video post. We all seem to get photographed wearing blues and reds so I wanted some papers to go with those photos. These papers are particularly good for boy pages, too.
The chipboard stars have been in my stash forever. I used a negative image for part of the border. For some of the stars, I coated them with Versamark and embossed in gold, copper. One is done in a pewter color which comes from a pigment ink. I made my own flags using some Authentique word stickers and the LYB stick pins.
The circular die cut at the top is the one I really used after cutting the slightly too fru-fru one that was used on yesterday's masked card. This was a little more masculine, to me. Finally I cut some of the pattern paper and stitched for the large flag behind the title.
I did this layout mostly standing up and it worked pretty well. I can't get too attached to that new table in my workroom; it is too large. Maybe I could get a smaller version...
Thanks for dropping by!
