Well am I glad to be back in blogland!!! I'm relieved to finally be crafting again! After all the excitement of the wedding and the honeymoon, it's taken me a little while to settle back into normal life. I'd thought about going to my craft corner several times but the umph! wasn't there and neither were the ideas! So I visited some of my fave blogs to get some much needed inspiration and it seems to have done the trick :-)
And just in time too.... it was my son, Marc's seventeenth birthday yesterday. I think he's a bit too old for all the kid/teenager images I've got now so I had to think of something a bit different. After trawling through all my digi images I found this one which pretty much sums him up most mornings :-) I have had this image for ages - it isn't conveniently organised with a name or where it's from so it must be from when I was quite new to blogland so if anyone can tell me where it's from, that would be great!
I was quite proud of myself for using only card and papers from my scraps folder so I'm not quite sure where they're from either (although I'm pretty sure the paler spotted paper is Daisy and Dandelion). I embossed the background with a papermania mini polka dots folder and added a sentiment from Sentiments 4 You.
The image is coloured with promarkers and I've added a little 3D gloss to his nose :-)
