He's not in the Holiday Mood!


Check out the photo on this page. Talk about attitude!! He was having a strop because Sophie had found a coconut on the beach and he hadn't! Luckily a few moments later we found a half rotten coconut floatiing in the sea and gave it to him. The tantrum was over as quickly as it had started only now we had to carry a decomposing coconut shell across the beach and back to our hotel room (where is festered on the deck until the day that we left :)
The challenge at Once Upon a Sketch is to combine journaling about a holiday memory with their cool sketch. The papers I used are Graphic 45 'Tropical Travelogue' and Kaisercraft. I sprayed the background paper using a dinner plate as a mask to get the white circle effect. Right now I am loving using string and twine on my pages and I enjoyed making the butterfly trail with string. Gotta say I really love this one - that photo has to be one of my favourite photos out of the thousand or so that I took in Fiji !
