Hey there! It's already the middle of the month.
And a short[ish] one, too! However, there's still plenty
of time to join our current OFF THE RAILS challenge:
Choice  of two:
Romance or, below, Summers Day:
 This is the one I went with, as you can see below:
 Thanks Lizzy C for the sort of trellis die cut!
I used texture paste but it blended too well, so got
out the texta & did some outlining!
 I've decided poor old Ollie is going to be squished between his elder brother
& younger sibling yet to be born. So making a concerted effort
to scrap plenty of pages of him before the next one arrives in June!
 Those word cut ups are from Studio Fourteen 40. Cute!
 I was blessed to be given some Close To My Heart papers, stamps etc by 
Scrapbooking Memories Magazine, to do a commission. This paper was left 
over. Perfect for the colour palette at OFF THE RAILS.
Hoping you have a chance to join the fun:)
Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
