Once Upon a Sketch....March Challenge

Journalling: "Picking flowers for mum one lazy Saturday afternoon"

This months challenge at Once Upon a Sketch was to scrap about the weekend.  For me, weekends mean going to work. It also means coming back home to an excited little boy, and almost certainly ending up in a local park.  I love this photo of him picking weed flowers, and when I see it, I can hear that little 2 year old voice saying "I picked some flowers for you, mum."    

It's a bit of a mixed-bag of products here, including Kaisercraft 'magnolia' collectables and wooden flourish, a Prima vine, Francheville label frame, gumdrop glimmer mist and gold micro-beads. I made the white flourishes by tracing around chipboard (Blue Fern Studios 'royal border') and fussy cutting it out, which really didn't take as long as I thought it would!

 Thanks for visiting my blog!  :)

Scrap The Boys - March

This months challenge at Scrap The Boys has the following criteria:
  • 2 photos 6x4 or smaller
  • Chipboard
  • Washi Tapes
  • Mists/Paints
You can use other items if you wish but these above items must be used.

Here is my very colourful example:

 "Note to Self: Shower that gorgeous face with kisses while he still lets you!"

I actually scrapped with scraps! All those little bits 'n' pieces, already punched or fussy-cut, that didn't make the grade for past layouts, I knew they would come in handy for something!
