February at Scrap the Boys- Special to me.

Hi Everyone!
I Love this photo taken of Matthew with his Gran & Pa at his 18th Birthday.
Just perfect for the
Scrap your boy and someone special in their life
 
{Special to me!}
To make the photo matt I have layered several strips of different washi tapes,
 cut and glued small strips of Hambly Screen Print transparency pieces, added rub-ons, drawn black pen lines and stitched with red cotton.
The journaling-You are Special to me and I Love you.
Thanks for all you do Gran & Pa.
Pa has a wicked sense of humour and loves to tell jokes and
 he has taught me some good lessons in life. 
Gran is kind, gentle and an awesome cook......
she whipped up this beautiful chocolate sponge  for me for my 18th Birthday.  Yummo!
 
I have written the Chocolate Sponge Recipe on the back of this layout.
 
You are all amazing people to leave me such  beautiful and thoughtful comments.
Thank you all so, so much!
 
Janice xx
