Let's talk Minecraft!

Last Christmas I got a big box full of Gelatos in the most amazing colors, but until now I've almost never used it. So when I saw the Thursday challenge at Elle's Studio I decided I had to give it a go! (if you see the challenge, you'll understand why!).

I used the "Everyday Moments" collection from Elle's Studio and an older kit + add-on from the Scraptastic Kit Club (Classy Girls, August 2013) which I loved but (also) had barely touched (so much to do, so little time!) and here's what I made:

Very messy for me, but I loved giving this technique a try!

My boys (14 and 9) LOVE the online game Minecraft. So when we were away for a couple of days, they would look forward to the afternoon coffee in the hotel lobby where there was free wifi!

And because I made this page with the Scraptastic Club kit, I thought I'd link this up to their May 1st challenge as well (use a telephone on your page). As the boys are playing on their iPhone and iPod the cardstock sticker of the telephone was a perfect finishing touch!

So this is it for today, thanks for visiting my blog and hope you'll have a great day!
