Scrap the Boys October

Well, school holidays have finished and we are in the downhill run to the end of the year. It is hard to believe we are approaching the end of another year. I swear this one has gone by even faster than previous ones!

I managed to steal some time to myself at the end of the break to sit at my desk and play, and my go to place to start is one of the great challenge blogs that we have out there. Scrap the Boys caught my attention because the theme for the month is - Technology Savvy. And since my Liam bought himself an iPad mini with his birthday money and has been obsessed ever since I thought that was the perfect story!

So here is my finished page:

I have been having a great time playing with my Silhouette lately, more to come on that later, and decided to grab an apple logo and title to trace and cut for my title. Turned out pretty well, and it was a great finish to the page! There is also a little bit of D'lish goodies on there too, the flair, twine, star button and today tab. It is always easy to add a little bit of something from D'lish!!

Here are a couple of close ups too:

I also played with a new stencil, plus signs (I think it is called positive), a Kaiser Craft one. I used some pumice stone distress ink to give a subtle background and not overwhelm the papers.

Anyway, that is all for now.

Thanks for stopping by.

Colours and stamping are spot on. Great layout. My 11 year old son is obsessed with his iPad mini and I see he's not the only one. LOL.
