We are back!!!!!!!!!!!!!.....

is back!

has been working hard behind the scenes to update the blog
and challenge us with new words
I think you will love this word

and here is my layout for the design team

this is C3 with his best buddy from kindergarten
they go to different schools now
(they are in the 4th grade)
but their friendship is going strong 
and they see each other every week
They became firm friends when Elias (the one in blue)
came to C3's rescue in the playground.
Unfortunately the other children would grab C3's glasses and jump on them
(who brings up children like that??????????)
 my son was so afraid to play with the other children
in fear that they would break his glasses so he played on his own
Elias went up to him one day and asked if he wanted to play with him
and that was the begining of their friendship...

In this picture we are on holidays in Mani the Peloponese with Elias's family
the boys here are having a rest
a quiet moment before their next adventure!

some close ups

materials used

Basic Grey wander embark
guaze misted with Dylusions
corrugated card ctock
a piece of vellum with a nautical printed on it (thank you Roula Fournaraki)
various Alphas which were painted and inked
plus various embellishments all from my stash

Hope you come and play along!!
