Child’s Play 
is the new challenge at FSC this fortnight!

Remember, stamping must be the focal point of your creation…then just and follow the theme and you are win with a chance of winning!
Childhood is so different these days compared to how it was 
when I was little.  But I am sure that the kids of today will end up with many happy memories as they grow older.
For me, life was an adventure…everyday.
~ lots of exploring, playing cowboys and indians with my brother, yonny wars with the neighbours, neighbourhood concerts, swimming, taddy-ing, jungles, bonfires, bike-riding, go-karts 
~ the list goes on and on.
I don’t think I was a tom-boy (though the block was mainly boys) because my dolls had the whole linen cupboard as their home…with many stories to live in.
Some really nice memories 🙂

I didn’t realise how few child stamps that I had.  
Maybe because my kids are old teenagers now so it isn’t really on my radar anymore.
So I have made do with a stamp that I do have.
There are a couple of first’s in this make for me:
this is my first go at using a dictionary page with my stamps…
and it is most definitely something I will do again!
The main stamp is from Art Journey 
and I have just cut part of the stamped image out from the whole thing.
I figured that it is just another way of using our stamps.
In hindsight, I would add some shading around the image…so I’ll do that next time.
And I’ve added a few ladybirds for embellies…just because it was one of my favourite bugs. It was always a special day when you found one under a leaf (true!) – plus it’s a nice change from butterflies.
The background is a happy accident (is that a kind of a first?)
which I wont go into just yet as it it something that I really want to take a step further.  

So, go ahead, remember your youth, and see what you can bring to life with this challenge 🙂
