An ickle bit FIERCE


I've had this one sat on my desk all week waiting to be finished.
I grabbed a few minutes and did the journaling this morning so now I can finally share.
The inspiration came from the OLW challenge blog.
This months word is 'FIERCE'.

Can you tell how much fun I had with this?
I opened up a lovely new set of inktense pencils for this LO.
I used a dinner plate to draw around with the pencils and them went over with a thin paint brush and water.
The title is hand drawn and cut out.
The bits and pieces are 'MME' Take Note card & Pins, Jillibean butterfly and Studio Calico wooden chevrons. The journal lines are all hand stitched.
You can visit OLW here.

How's the summer going?
We finally broke up from school on Tuesday.
Louis got the Gold Book Award.
Each class has one award per term. As the classes are kept together throughout Junior School this means that out of about 35, they get 12 chances to get this award.
We are so proud of him.

Hollie also got the award when she was at this school : )
Talking of Hollie, we had some blue flashes put through her hair on Wednesday.
She is getting older and more grown up.
She had friends sleep over Wednesday night and they took the train in to Reading yesterday to go shopping.
They woke up yesterday morning to freshly baked strawberry muffins.
I love them being home.
I hope you are enjoying your summer.
Lots of love xxx
