You're a STAR

Thank you for visiting today.  I hope your week is going well. 

Last week my DGS had his first 'baking day' at 21 months old so I couldn't help but record the occasion. 

On the 'Scrap Around the World' Mood Board for Challenge 4  I was inspired by the colours of the cake and of course the fact that it is baking to come up with my take on the sketch. 

I have pretty much stuck with the sketch as I loved it and felt it suited the photos.

I added some texture paste,  gel medium, glimmer mist and paint to add texture.  The title is A2Z Scraplets which has been painted with a mix of 'Silks' and paints. The stars are Pink Paislee resist Artisan shapes.  Patterned papers are an older Bo Bunny collection "Country Garden" but I felt the colours worked in with the tiered cake in the mood board.
Journalling "At 21 months old (13.08.13) Zac had his 1st Baking Day.  Full of concentration as he decorated the biscuits.  Will I be a baker like NanNan?"   My Mum is a wonderful baker and spent many of her working years baking and catering.  Everyone still loves her baking treats.

How clever and cute is he concentrating on decorating the shapes with the sweets.  Pretty amazing concentration at just 21 months old. We skyped one night this week and I read his favourite 'Grannie' Book "Far, Far From Home".  Another first this week was going to the Movies lol. 

Thank you for the challenge "Scrap Around the World".  It was fun. 

Would love to know you have visited by leaving a comment. 

That is all for today so until next time....
