Scrapbook Sisters 3 Colours

I had a sheet of white 12x12 left from a Scrapagogo kit and decided to make this page for the 3 colours challenge at Scrapbook Sisters.
I've sprayed the page with Dylusions in Bubblegum pink and Fresh Lime and as I didn't own a 3rd of those I used Stream Color Wash that went a little out of control!
I clipped some little hearts from the left overs of the blue card I used to cut a photo mat on another layout and journalled lots of personal stuff all the way around the edge with a Faded Jeans Distress Marker including a hand written title.

Challenges:
Scrapbook Sisters - 3 colours
Moving Along With The Times - Anything but a card

The weather played a trick on us on Saturday.  The sun shone, I dried washing in the garden and walked to town without a coat.  Then as soon as it arrived, it was gone and we were back to rain, rain and more rain.  There were some outside jobs that couldn't be put off any longer as rain has a habit of making things grow, particularly things that you don't want to grow.  There were 3 small sycamore trees taking root from seed in the front garden and they had to go before the roots did damage to the house.
The boys helped dad which meant that between them the majority of the flowering plants got pulled up as well. In the end I had to make a rule that if it was yellow or pink they couldn't pull it up.  So that's a lovely front garden full of dandelions then!!!
Branston Pickle was already heavy with a cold, you can see it from the photo.  I didn't let them stay out long, but they needed some air and sunlight daylight.
Small-n-Grubby looks fine here but by this morning his temperature was up and he didn't feel well.  A day off school then, at least we didn't have to trudge over there in the rain.
