SILLY BOYS - Lasting Memories Layout Challenges DT Reveal

Happy Sunday everyone....and it is still hot, hot, hot!!!! This hot weather just doesn't want to break!

It is time for the newest Lasting Memories Layout Challenges Design Team Reveal. We are continuing with the theme of "Childhood Games" for the month of July.

Here is my layout....

This is one of my favourtie photos from when our boys were young. We had gone camping for the weekend. It was very hot and so the boys were busy playing in the sand in our campsite while my husband and I got things set up. Unfortunately the people at the campsite clearly emptied the fire pit ash in the sand, so the boys were covered in black soot from head to toe. It stuck to their hot little bodies like paint. We laughed and laughed when we took a look at them and of course they had to pose for a photo. This is one of those photos that just takes you right back to the moment almost thirty years ago!!!

Here are some closeups....

I added some Tim Holtz black Distress Ink to the background using a splatter stencil.

Product List: Simple Stories background paper, Jillibean Soup papers & stickers, Recollection heart clip, Thickers scrabble type lettering and Fancy Pants stickers.

So if you haven't guessed the Childhood game yet for our is an inspiration photo....

Of course it is Scrabble....and I used Scrabble tiles for my title. Be sure to stop over at the LMLC blog and check out the rest of the design team's creation and then link up your before the end of the month for a chance at winning a prize donated by me!

I used the sketch from Scrap Our Stash for my starting point....

I also used the following three items from the stash list....Simple Stories, Twine and Uniball Pen.
