My Sweetheart - My Creative Scrapbook - Limited Edition Kit

I'm back with another layout using the My Creative Scrapbook, Limited Edition, February Kit. You can find all kit information 'HERE', and the Limited Edition Kit information 'HERE'.  Call on over to the My Creative Scrapbook blog for a month full of inspiration from the Design Team, and also many 'how to' projects.

....the layout is a story of my daughter when she was younger.  We lived on a large property in the Flinders Ranges, South Australia, and on cold Winter nights, friends and family would gather around for 'bonfire' nights.  We had a pile of old tree logs around a camp-fire site, used to cook damper, roast marshmallows, and enjoy stories and tales.  Even the animals got in on the act, enjoying the warmth of the fire - including a visiting Kangaroo every now and then. 
I used a mixture of paint and stamping for the background, and elements from the kit to showcase the photograph.

I have one more project to share with this kit!  I cannot believe another month is nearly over - 2013 is rolling by very quickly!

Gorgeous and I can relate to the story of bonfires, we often had one as children and the neighbourhood families used to come along as well.
