Memories of LEGO fun!

I wasn't sure what I was going to do with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge this week. I just wasn't feeling any mojo... starting to get sick I think. I was looking at my stamp sets thinking what is jumping out? Nope nothing. Then I asked what stirs my emotions? I think I am feeling a bit nostalgic today... and there it was!! But first here is the sketch - 


Here is my card!


One of things that I love about this card is the memories that it evokes in me. I remember the times that I spent with all my brothers and sisters building cool lego buildings and playing along. We loved it. Life was fun and simple right? Not complicated. And it was time with my brothers and sisters that we just don't get the luxury to have much of anymore - we didn't appreciate how special that time was together. I sure do now though! I decided that I want to give this to my brother Simon - hence why I used the Project Life stamp set - Remember this. It is a perfect way to bring back some great memories that we have had together and create some more in the future. (Maybe not playing with Lego though..)

Here is what the pile of lego would look like in our room does this bring back memories for you too?

To make this card I used the Masking technique - it was perfect with this stamp set to be able to get the layers and layers of lego that I remember being in a big mess on the floor. I also added another one on top with dimensionals to you guessed it - create dimension!


How much fun are these colours? That Cucumber crush is a winner with this stamp set - Boys with be Boys.

    1. I am! Loving these challenges. Gets the mojo going. It was surprisingly very quick - just made sure that I kept going in a direction that didn't require two masks. :-)

  2. Love this :) I can still hear the whooshing sound of digging through my brothers toy box full of Legos to find the tiny pieces or a little light! Fun memories. Thanks for sharing!
