Masculine for June

 Hi all,

We have a new challenge started over at Creative Moments, and as Father's Day is this month here in the UK we have chosen the optional theme of men or boys.

Our sponsor is Polkadoodles and I have used a discontinued image of theirs that was in my stash.

I coloured the image using my chameleon pens. I layered this onto an inked pink panel to match the guitar. I finally layered the panel onto blue card and added a 21 key and a sentiment.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
SOS #498 let's hear it for the boys
AYLI - Pastels or Brights - I much prefer using bright colours as I find they make the images pop
MTTC #509 Masculine
SimonSaysMonday - Masculine
PFP #693 For a man or boy
CRAFT #680 Masculine
allsorts #732 Birthdays

I also finally have a new book review to share with you!

Schooled by Ted Fox

Jack Parker went from being a highly successful businessman, to a laughing stock overnight when he accidentally burnt his workplace down procrastinating over having to fire some good staff. He has since become a very good stay-at hoe dad with a highly successful wife. Six years on and his oldest is starting ‘big’ school, and Jack comes face-to-face with his high school nemesis Chad Henson. Chad has always cheated his way to the top, not caring who he beats down in the process. This gives Jack his competitive streak back as he decides he cannot let Chad become the president of the parents committee due to his lax ethical views. Classroom politics is much more cut-throat the Jack realises and it makes him stop to look at his own life, and what role he wants to play.

This is a fun and light-hearted look at life. It shows how you can get stuck in a rut and that can make it difficult to find who you want to be when the opportunity presents itself, without causing upheaval to the current structure. A good holiday read.
