He is amazing...

I'm back for another post this week! I'm playing along at 'Bird Is The Word' again. This time I used the word Amazing on my layout. Now, after my last post about my scraproom make over, I couldn't go past my DH when I thought of the word 'amazing'. He is just such an amazing man and he truly makes me happy. Lol! Well, most of the time. Now, this photo is not one of him smiling, but it shows of his personality perfectly. DD took the pic and he looked right at her glaring into the lense.  Its not often we get a smile from him or DS when taking photos. I've printed this beautiful quote on some masking tape. It says "I have looked in your eyes with my eyes. I have put my heart near your heart." Unfortunately I don't know who the author of the quote is.
I have used my kit from Handmade by Suzanne for this. Now, you already know how much I love My Minds Eye. Well, this is Lime Twist 'Out of the Blue' again. :)
A close up of the bottle cap. These are so easy to use and you can find it right here.
My qoute printed on masking tape. Check out the rest of the masking tape here. It's available in a great range of colours and patterns.
And a final close up. I created the ink splatters using Glimmermist 'Raven'. I didn't use the spray but an ink dropper from here.
Now, I had a quite a few requests to share photos of my scrap space. I'll make a huge effort this weekend to clean it up and take some pics. Hopefully, I'll be able to share in my next post. :)
I'm hoping to get a bit more scrapping done this weekend and I'm also making a huge effort on catching up on all my favourite blogs.  I'm sorry if you haven't had a comment from me recently. DS went into hospital on Wednesday for an operation on both knees. He came home yesterday and is doing well but is not really able to get around the house without help. I'm the one staying at home looking after him most of the time, so I'm hoping that will give me more time to play catch up too. :)
Hope you have a great weekend and have time to do something creative.
Thanks for visiting!
