Art Journey Challenge 11 WOW!!!

What FABULOUS cards posted for the July challenge, All About Children. Thank you SO MUCH for participating in the challenge!

I'm very lucky to have three little grandkidlets visiting me in Nova Scotia for the whole summer; that's why I chose "Children" as the theme. I was particularly drawn to so many beautiful backgrounds.

Here are my favourites (although it was difficult to choose only five!) I learned SO MUCH from the entries this month, and have bookmarked several "new-to-me" techniques to try.

The winner of this month's challenge is this card, created by Tini. Please e-mail Louise at info@artjourney.nl to claim your 10 euro's gift certificate!

I hope it's okay to share some pictures of my very busy little grandboys, who are the inspiration for all my cards about children! They live in Ontario (in central Canada), and these photos were taken on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean in beautiful Nova Scotia. What joyful abandon, and such precious memories. Aaahhh...life is GOOD!

Thank you again for participating in our eleventh challenge. Watch for our twelfth challenge, coming soon! Thank you also for allowing me to share my grandchildren with you. I wish you a wonderful weekend, spent with the people you love, and doing the things you love to do!
