Airshow celebration scrap page!!

 Afternoon Peeps!!!
Its a really gorgeous day here in our village. The airshow is on and my Grandad is here to watch it with Mo and Scott (...though Mo keeps scooting into the craft room with me whenever there is anything remotely loud going up!!!!!) and I have taken the opportunity of Grandad being here to get some piccies of him with Mo. Mo loves him to bits so its super nice for Mo too as its always a bit of a celebration when Grandad comes here ( only happens once a year!! romfl!!!!) Mo and I made a yummy chocolate cake especially and Mo has been running back and forth from Grandad and Daddy with picnic food and drinks!! bless him!!
Whilst they are all sat watching the show, next to the field that runs along the side of our house, I have been busy making my June scrap page. Now this one will not be going in my scrap book as I have tied a little twine through it and popped it into my Grandad's car for a surprise for him!! I am not going to tell him it is there but he should find it when he gets home and picks his jumper up!!

Just in the bottom right hand corner I have stamped my new LOTV boy with his little aeroplane and really gently coloured him up with my promarkers.

 I used my LOTV vintage postcard stamp to add a bit of fun around the edges of the page and just over the edges of the photographs at the top.
I cut a label out on my cricut and Mo wanted to decorate that so he wrote waddington airshow 2011 and added a little green heart.

He also wrote ' I love you Grandad ' down in the left hand bottom corner so I really carefully stamped over it with the postcard stamp to make it look as if he had written on the postcard!! then I stamped a few of my SU sense of time clocks around the page and distressed all around the edges with some tea dye distress ink.

I used one of theLOTV sentiment cirlcles to write the month and date on and popped that in the middle of the photographs. The little embossed stars piece of card looks really cool IRL.
When I had finished fiddling around with it, I slid it into a scrapbook page protector and added 2 eyelets and some twine so Grandad can hang it up when he gets home. I hope he likes it.

I am entering this in the LOTV challenge blogs celebrate challenge.

and here is the yummy cake Mo and I didn't last very long!!!! It had chocolate and coffee icing! yum!!!
 ....and here is my little bowl licker!!!!
Right then, thats me for today!!! I have still got to clean up the messy end of my craft table from yesterday!! maybe later.....
Huge hugs Lou xxxxx
