This is my spunky man Josh the title was an easy choice I do adore him :) always have since the first time I saw him........he's getting so grown up though.....to fast I think!!Im really pleased with how this one has turned out!I thought it was going to be a disaster when I dropped the ink pad on my white CS but I went with it and layered different colours of ink and I LOVE it!Heaps of distressing and some messy stitching and its done!


I was sick all day yesterday :)Not well at all.....slept most of it :( I was supposed to go over to Nic's last night but I just couldnt get off the couch my head was like a balloon about to pop.....not good at all.But feeling much better today (as always after my headaches I feel hung over no alcohol required LOL) Its still raining here woohoo but boohoo for the pile of washing LOL oh well the rain is a good thing *thumbs up* Im off to clean and have a play in the scrap room :)
