Twirling Friends

I took this photo of our close friends Rosie and David, when Rosie was twirling my daughter, and David was rocking my son. Because of this movement the photo is a bit blurry, but I love the picture – it warms my heart. We’re so lucky to have them as our friends, and I love it that they feel as close as family – I know my kids will grow up loving them as much as I do!

Supplies =
WRMK Stitched Cardstock, 72&Sunny Chipboard Stickers, and Citrus Chipboard Stickers
Cosmo Cricket Togetherness ‘Birds of a Feather’ Paper (A and B side)
PaperMill Shop Chipboard Alphabet (painted with blue and white acrylic paint)
Unknown Chipboard Brackets and Buttons

I used the September Challenge at Scrapbookers Anonymous to prompt the page – the challenge is to use chipboard (could you have guessed? I’ve used a fair amount!).
The alphas in the title were blank chipboard. I wanted to give them a distressed denim look (to match my friend’s clothes in the photo), so I painted them first with blue acrylic paint, let it dry, and then rubbed white acrylic paint on with my fingertip – wiping it with a baby wipe if it got too thick:

It was good to use some of the chipboard from my stash – and I enjoyed keeping the page quite simple so that the chipboard stands out. If you’re hoarding some chipboard in your stash then go and make a page and enter the challenge!

Back soon with more LSNED… x
