Finger Foods

That was the name of the challenge I set on Cocoa Daisy yesterday.

We are having a Picnic themed Spring Crop this weekend, (although looking at that weather outside, picnics are the very last thing on one's minds)

I do like to get messy.
I love the sociable type of meals. It's a regular thing I do in our home. Throw a load of stuff in the middle of the table and everyone tucks in. Whether it be Mexican, Indian, Tex Mex..... I love to cook and it's a great way for me to try out new recipes and cooks lots of lovely things and it's a great way for the kids to eat and try new things.
I'm also a messy scrappy and love to get paint on my fingers (they are currently a lovely greeny/blue). 

So hence the name of this challenge.
Here is my piece. (click to see all the bits and pieces)

A bit of hidden journaling under the photo.
I've misted a paper napkin to attach my photo to. I've used my fingers to paint and distressed by hand.

These are probably my favourite colours to work with.
And the story:
This was aour first day away at Easter. It's become a tradition that we always make a sand boat. As the kids have got bigger, so have the sand boats.

After I had finished the LO I liked it, but felt maybe the space at the bottom needed something. I didn't want to add something though and then regret it. I asked Louis what he thought and he came up with the journaling strips. So thank you to Louis. I agree, it did need something else after all. 

You can see the challenge in full on Cocoa Daisy here.
Come and take a look at the other challenges too. They are pretty awesome!
We have another full day of them today.

Yesterdays class went super well. Thank you for the messages girls : )
Such a fun group and I never want to leave, I always want to stay and crop with them but always seem to have something planned for the afternoon.
Maybe next time.

Scrapping and work for me today.
Lots and lots to do.
Enjoy your Sunday xxx
