world at your feet

Here's my latest LO. This is Tys at the Botanic Gardens in Adelaide Feb 09. He just couldn't help himself when he saw all this open space. His stroll soon turned into a sprint as fast as his little legs could carry him.
DH was assigned the job of chasing him as I was holding Jedd and my third baby 'Nikon' LOL.
I have noticed these little pin wheels popping up on other LOs around the place and I thought Id have a go myself.
They are super easy to make. Here's a link to the pattern and instructions.
The ones I made are 2 inches square and the larger is 2 1/2 inches.
The journalling is a quote by Richard Hovey. It reads...........
'I am sick of four walls and a ceiling. I have need for the sky. I have business with the grass.
When I read it I thought it was just right for these photos.
I had three photos in this set to use but I don't do the multi photo LOs very often and I just couldn't make all 3 work. But I like multi photo LOs and I think Ill try more in the future.
I'm going to give the scrapbooking a rest for a little while now. The house work and the husband are looking seriously neglected. I think a divorce may be on the cards soon if I don't spend some quality time with DH. lol.
I need to get started on my Canvases as I have 2 planned for up coming birthdays and a little practice run one for myself first.
So stay tuned and I will upload them in the future. That is of course, only if they are not complete humiliating failures :(
