Chapter 13.........

Well I'm now the mother of a Teenager!
My eldest turned 13 this week
I make my children a little piece of art just for them each birthday, they love their collections and look forward now to receiving a new piece to add to it on their birthdays.

Look at this Cheeky Pair, they make me smile every time I look at them,

a bit like my two boys really!

Now Jacob is a Very Committed Reader, and just loves Maths

so this ATC reflects his two of his passions

the little Arrow and the numbers represents him growing up (Way too Quickly!!!)

I just love Stamping over the top of Old Text Paper,

But particularly love this look, Using a Number Stamp over the top of other Numbers going the opposite direction.

This Fabulous Queens Dresser Draws Stamp was in my last

The Stamping Queen

Design Team pack, I combined it with my Favourite Paper Artsy Numbers stamp, Pages torn from old maths text books, Collections Arrow, Number Stamps, Computer Generated words & my sewing machine.

and my Jacob loved it :)
