Thanks for calling in to say ‘Gday.

I hope you will find something to persuade you to take a chance with some vibrant colours and a join in with the Kraft+ challenge this month.

I was inspired by the vivid colours, the stitched circle and the "live out loud", exuberant feel of the image.

The paper is all from a 6x6 pad by Studio Calico, "Lemon Lush"
Some texture paste through stencils.

The yellow flowers were made with a new Scrapmatts stencil - ST5030

The title is by Heidi Swapp .
Some flairs by Basic Grey, circle stamps from Prima.

The journalling is on the back of the page and it reads:-

These three family members all took up the challenge to have a
“Girls night out” for another Son’s special birthday.
None of them ever seek the limelight, nor do they like standing out from the crowd, so to have evidence of them getting in touch with their feminine side is quite a coup.
What a fun weekend, good food, music, dancing, stories from childhood, previously not revealed and a chance to play the fool. Should be more of it.

Thanks for calling in to say hello.
I truly appreciate any comments you may care to leave.
