Scrap the Boys DT 6 Feb 2018 - Combined with Stick it Down challenge.

Hello and welcome back to my blog, where today I am sharing a  layout for Scrap the Boys which is a combined challenge with Stick it Down challenge site.
The wonderful sketch is by Laura Rumble who is offering two free cut files which you can find 
We hope you will be inspired to play along.

Just this once, because of the style of the challenge, we are able to use some feminine content on the page and I've chosen to scrap about one of our Grand Boys playing with his little Girl Cousin.

I used the cut file provided and enjoyed using some older stash with it.

The background paper is by BoBunny. It's called Secret Garden.
The purple heart paper and the pink inserts are both older collections from Maja.
I scrounged around and found a tiny bit of vellum, circa 2000, with which I created the shaker heart. 

The title is from Tim Holtz, Quote Chips.
I stamped some flowers to make a cluster and added the purple bow from D'Lish Scraps

The doodling around the edge of the heart was to soften and blend it with the vellum. 
The journalling is on the back of the page and it reads:-

You spent time with your big cousins recently on a beach holiday.
Oliver was gentle with you, as you showed him how you can climb in and out of the pusher 
and how you can wheel your chariot around and around in endless circles. 
You don't get to see each other often, as you live so far away, 
but that makes the times spent together even more precious.

I appreciate your kind comments and so enjoy reading them.  Thank you.
