Skrap n' Chat Blog Hop

Hello there and welcome to Skrap n' Chat's blog hop! 
This is my first blog hop that I've ever done so needless to say I'm kinda tickled to be playing along. We went with a theme of misting and masking and I've been using a lot of mists on my recent pages so I wanted to try something different for the masking part. 
For my layout I wanted to try masking with washi tape and spray mist. I liked using the washi tape because it peeled off nice and easy. When I use spray mist I tend to forget to cover my work station but this time I actually remembered which was a nice change except... I used tissue paper and it leaked through. *le sigh* I'll chalk that up as "E" for effort.
But here's how it looks when the tape is peeled off with a photo and decorated with fun elements. 
Ok so this is my dad. Yup he's really holding up lemons as boobies. He's awesome sauce if you ask me. 
I've been super spoiled to have him down south for a few months while the north raged on with it's winter. I'm trying not to think about how he leaves in a few short days to head back home so for now I will just scrapbook layouts about his time here instead to keep me busy.
heh heh lemon boobies......yes I still giggle when I say it out loud.
