jump, bounce, POSE!

February came and went in a flash didnt it ?  Cant believe it is already past the middle of March! Mind you I am counting down the days of the next 2 weeks as I am going away on a weekend retreat with some lovely ladies I met online at UKScrappers.  I am hoping to beat my personal best of 2 LO’s at a  retreat although  at the rate I chat and eat cake whilst sipping on a glass or two of wine, I dont hold much hope.

I did manage to have a go at the March House Challenge on UKScrappers this week. The challenge was to do a monochrome LO.

I have used these photo’s of Amy playing on the trampoline last spring. As per usual she was even posing for the camera while bouncing! 


My girl loves to be in front of a camera. Can you tell ?


I chose to use shades of grey taking inspiration from Amy’s skirt and shoes. I stamped out the base with grey ink and then went over it with a paler grey acrylic paint to add some texture. The flowers were cut from a co-ordinating paper which is from a Papermania Range I think.

Thanks for stopping by,
