Layout - read my lips

Happy Saturday! I hope you are having a great start to the weekend! I am spending the day tidying up and washing all our linen up nice and fresh!  Isn't clean sheet day just the best! 

I finally have the photos up and ready to share!  The last lot of photos were just too dark.  I'm going to attempt making my own photography light box in the coming days and that should help too!

Here's the first layout to share.  Bright flowers are just not my thing, but the colours in this month's challenge at Scrapping Outback were just impossible to resist! Here's the photo inspiration:


Don't you wish you were there drinking that cocktail??

And here is my layout:


This photo was one of many we took this day in the pool.  It wasn't until fairly recently that we realised we had captured The Boy learning to lipread! I wish we had realised then, insisted on more hearing tests. Doctors told me The Boy would start talking at daycare, playgroup, with siblings... I wish I'd seen more signs, and insisted. Please, if you have ANY concerns about your toddler speaking, listening and/or socialising, get his or her hearing checked!!!! And don't let doctors fob you off!

Layout recipe:
Cardstock/paper: Summer Paradise (Simple Stories), Bazzill
Other: spritzed with diluted red ink, brown rick rack, gold brads, spotty brads (Kaszazz), thickers (coloured with black ink), twine, distressing tool, Walnut Stain distress ink
