Have you seen ?

my boys in SBM ? My issue arrived this morning and this is one of the layouts from that issue. I was asked to incorporate recycled stuff on my layouts. That was no hardship as I tend to use all sorts of tat on my layouts.

For this, my 2 Jokers, I have cut up fabric panels from A's shirts...no, not his current ones but his old ones that were really tatty at the collar and cuffs. I have been saving them for many years to make a quilt ( they are nice and soft egyptian cotton mostly ) but I never did make a start. I finally cut up some of them up, saved the buttons and discarded the rest.

I love this photo of my boys. J is always holding H a little to tightly and I suspect, in this one, J was also tickling H and trying to look cool at the same time.
