Together

This photo was taken last Easter......the colours we were wearing were so different I printed it in black and white!!  We really must start to dress co-ordinating!!! LOL


The challenge at Creative Embellishments is a picture for inspiration and to say why you are lucky!! 

sweet_wallpaper_wonderful_2033_background_edition

I chose the pale green with a splash of pink and hearts, and I am lucky to have three such beautiful grandchildren!! I could be biased on that one!! LOL   The photo hasn't come out too well colourwise...it really is green! The 'Together' title is also a Creative Embellishment.

I am also entering the challenge at Tando the requirement is texture paste.  I made my own (!) and used a honeycomb mask, and textured under the title and also both sides of the photo....that also hasn't come out too well...you can see it on the pink paper...just!!  The little people are also Tando chipboard aren't they super!!!

Both challenges close at the end of the month so lots of time to join in!!!
