Crafting for all Seasons #104 "It's a Boy Thing"

Good morning all.

Plans here all took a change of direction last night when Gary decided he wasn't confident enough riding his motorbike to Iceland...unfortunately he's left the decision too late to get refunds on his ferry bookings! He's now going to fly out to Iceland tomorrow and rent a small car and just be away for about three weeks instead of five. It's a shame but problems with the bike mean he just hasn't had time to get any road experience and I'm glad he was sensible enough to make the decision himself.

Summer has arrived with a vengeance...it's been glorious here and it's set to continue until the weekend :)

A fortnight has passed and it's time for a new challenge at CFAS, our theme for this fortnight is "It's a Boy Thing"...so anything for a male will do. We're being sponsored by JustInklined who kindly gave the DT images to use.

I've used Football Crazy, coloured with promarkers and die cut with a circle nestie. All dies from Spellbinders. Sentiment from Imagination Crafts. Backing paper from Wild Rose Studio (I think!). Finished with some sequins...excuse the wet glue showing!
