Whoomp there it is!!! LO #2 of 52

Oh yeah! I have completed another LO in under a week!!
I know, I know what you are thinking is it for real?? But yes I have started this year off to a great start!!
I have set my self a goal of at least 52 LO's for this year.
For some of you talented scrappin' mama's that's nothing, but for those of you who know me well, you know that I just ain't a scrapping machine!! I have a more tortoise like approach to my scrapping, slow and steady.

So here is LO #2. A beautiful pic of my son Walter taken by a very talented friend of mine, Adhi Wicaksana Anggadjaja, in September of last year.

The letters and all the chippy embellishments are of course, Scrapware. The letters I sprayed with black gloss spray paint and being a rainy day in cloudy Brissy, I thought I would speed the drying process up by giving them a little zap with my gorgeous new pink heat gun (thanks Gilly!!) only to find out that spray paint instantly blisters when dried with a heat gun!!! (ahhhh) but being the perfectly impatient scrapper that I am I just when with it and grunged the whole LO to match my error :)

Finished off the LO with what I like to call a vintage cluster of do-dots and some bakers twine.

So  I know the pic isn't great but the sun hardly ever shines here now so I couldn't wait any longer to share!!
Thanks for looking.
Luv Renee
