Simple Fun!

Looking for a good giggle....make sure you watch the little youtube clip at the bottom of this post where you can see Marie sliding!
This was so fun to watch my kids do that I needed to create a fun page about it. This is at my in-laws farm, they have a steep grassy hill at the back and they had fresh sheets of cardboard....the perfect summer toboggan!

This was done exclusively with Melissa Frances products....I know....not the typical Melissa Frances layout but I wanted to show how you can use their product line for fun layouts like this one!
These photos were printed black and white and then I took my aqua painter and filled it with copic blending solution and then picked up various refill colors and painted them on my photos. I colored these boxes (E31) and the grass (YG25) and her shirt (RV34).
The fabulous Melissa Frances rub-ons added fun captions to my boxes.
I also used my YG25 reinker to color my twill that I stapled on as an accent as well.
Copic multiliners can be used for wonderful illustrating....but here I use mine for some simple journaling.

OK....now the clip you will want to see!.....

Marie you are way too cute. You slide with such flair. :)

Looks like a lot of fun -- we like cardboard boxes for winter toboggans too.
