Such a fun mood board and bright colours from the amazing Debbi Tehrani at CSI this week and an fabulous sketch by Em Stafrace. 
I hope you will hop over and play at the 
I’m still on an economy drive to use older stash and all of these papers fall into that category.  The green is so old, I have no idea of it’s provenance.  The green spotty, the yellow spotty and the red papers are older Kaisercraft.
 The cute phone button is from October Afternoon
The circle die is by Memory Box
A Tim Holtz die made the rosette
A Tim Holtz embossing folder created the numbers on the banner
The alphas are from Doodlebug - Just my type
Basic Grey provided the rub ons and they still work beautifully
Technology accent (telephone flair)
Loopy border (red trim)
Rub ons (stars and bar code)
Symbols (in the tree)

What is your favourite number Granny?
Because it has two circles joined together.
Why do you like two circles joined?
It reminds me of infinity.
What’s infinity?
Never ending, or beginning.
But things have to end don’t they, like playing has to finish to go to bed?
Hmmm...some things have to end.
Well I wish playing was infinity.
What’s your favourite number Lachie?
Why do you like number 10?
Because it’s two numbers, but it actually = only one number.
Of course, how logical.
What’s logical mean?
etc, etc, etc and so forth and so Granny February 2014
