String.... who always cuts too much?? = me!

Happy Saturday everyone!
Hope everyone is having a lovely day.
Later on I am going to visit my Aunty who had an operation to remove her breast cancer yesterday. Fingers crossed they have got all the bad bits out so she doesn't have to have more surgery. She is an amazing women, and a fighter. This cancer will never take over her. She will get on top of it.
I think this is a great quote, "She might fall, but she will never lie down"
To Deb if your reading...." The road to recovery is here now, take your time, breathe, and think of all the fluffy bunnies, elephants and pink fluffy rugs that surround your room. Never forgot we are always here to help and support you where we can, xxxooo".
I wanted to quickly share the layout I have created for the challenge site, Scrap for Help. they have an awesome DT over there. You should pop over and check out the talent!!
The challenge was to use string. Now I have a box of "off cuts", bit and pieces that I always cut too much of. So I got the stash out and used a some on my layout.
I have used the Paper Stories "Love Song" kit to make this layout. I have created two layouts with it so far and I have heaps left over for at least another 2 layouts or some cards. Everything you see is in the kit apart from the string, and tag. I have used my normal mixed media supplies to create this layout. My trusty faithful Crafters Workshop templates (can't wait to get my hands on the new release CHA ones), texture paste, Gesso, Heidi Swapp Colorshine in Gold, some distress stains and regular painters masking tape. (My hubby is a painter so I raid his stash quite often!)
The layout is of my boy - he never stops exploring and searching for new things to see. Here we are at Bibra Lake. Funny enough it's my husbands ancestors land. They settled in the area and there is a plaque in memorial of them. The lake isn't massive but has a decent walking/running track of 6km round. So 1/2 hour run for those fit people (you might have to do it twice!!)
So here it is...
Don't forget about my GIVEAWAY here....!!
Nothing Stops You

Have a lovely weekend everyone.
