Yesturday and today (edit now 2 more days have past, where do the hours go?) whilst my son has been doing his exams in our kitchen and I have been banned from the room I decided I'd do some crafting but couldn't decide what to do. I thought I'd have a change as I have quite a few scrap books still to do for Andrew though have to admit as he got older he became more camera shy so there are fewer photos for each year.
I am up to 2005-2006 his final year at primary school and first at high school. I am part way through and the pics won't have much meaning probably to anyone but his close family. Andrew calls his scrap books his legacy and he wanted them as a way to remember things he's done and been to so in later years he can show his family. I think if he has children they will find some of the photos and stories as amusing as we did at the time if not more so and though Andrew isn't embarrassed now I'm sure he will be as he gets older.
I decided as a challnge to use a couple of challenge layouts just for a change. My scrap pages are usually quite plain as I normally don't want to distract from the images soworking to a layout was a challenge in itself. I have to say I found it daunting at first but quite enjoyed the second.
I am not saying which order I did the layouts in as that reveals which I found more of a challenge so I will do them on this post in the order I have the layout challenges in my note book.
Now I've had a look and the first I have noted down is.....
Saturday crafter secret challenge. I am also going to enter this page into the craftalicious challenge which has a theme of new. I hope first day at a new school counts.The corrosive challenge also has a theme I can enter this page to and that is to use die cuts, well my a,b,c, are die cut so I'm in. Crafty Ho's also have a theme I can enter, anything goes.
Easy craft challenge as thier theme is green and that is my predominent colour all be it just the background. I used this fab stamp from sugar nellie , the wee sports manga boy he just seemed perfect for this page. The football stamp is from a sheet from the stamp man the papers just from my stash that I seem to have had forever.
Well missed challenge or not it's another 2 pages done. The weather is still miserable here and Andrew has another english exam this afternoon and I still have another couple of posts to finish before I have to unplug everything for his exam. The only good thing about being banished is that I get chance to do some crafting as even the tv in another room would be a distraction and I find it easier to knit which is my other option for me time when I have the tv on so I may have more to share ovetr the next couple of days.Thanks for dropping by and keep smiling afterall we could have snow!
