The king of the swingers baby...jungle V.I.P!

What was your favourite childhood toy? 
Did you collect cabbage patch dolls, Polly Pocket, barbies, beany babies or My Little Pony like me?
Well all these toys were fab, but I had no pics of them and when I think about mini Mel she was always on the swing - whether it be in the garden or at the park. 
So here she is swinging away.
Reaching for the stars - hence...

 This layout was stash lite as I used lots of my scraps. I got my trustee (and much negelected) Slice out to cut out various shaped stars. I then inked them to make them pop and pinned some down with brads. I must admit I did scraplift this idea from the latest Scrapbooksetc magazine. 

 This layout is more graphic than my usual style and I had to be very careful not to smudge the inks - I am usually a very messy scrapper! 
I must admit I can't pass a swing to this day without having a go. Perhaps I should have joined the circus!

Completed for this gorgeous blog.
