My wish for you - Kerryn

Well I am still enjoying my holidays, except for the fact I'm not scrapping as much as I had hoped, but I definitely had to scrap this gorgeous photo of my son that I took on New Years Eve. I can't believe how grown up and happy he looks, it really makes me smile.

Now chipboard wise, I've had the 2Crafty Frame Star with stars in my box for awhile, always wanting to save it for just the right page. Well during the week I decided this page was the going to be the one.

To start, I have covered the whole chipboard piece with red rocket Brilliance ink, it has a lovely shimmer to it. Once it had dried, I grabbed a few metallic pens from my stash and coloured some of the smaller stars in gold, red and blue. The papers I was using also had some stars on it, so I decided to cut a few out and used them to add a little dimension to a few stars on the frame.

As with a number of 2Crafty chipboard pieces, there can be many uses. So instead of using it to frame a photo, I decided to use this frame as my journal spot and I have added some paper to the main star to write on.

I have used this page to journal a few of my thoughts for our boy for the year ahead.
