I woke up in the early hours of Saturday morning and could not get back to sleep. I don't know why as I usually sleep like a log! A combination of the first week with my new team at work and the impending tea party for over 120 Guides, Brownies and Rainbows that I had helped to organise I think!
I got up to make a cup of tea and then found myself wandering into the study/craft room and had the mood to scrap. Not only did I make the weekly challenge on UKS but I then decided I needed to use up the rest of the scraps I was staring at and make a second lay out. I then went off back to bed for a couple of hours snooze followed by 7 hours of setting up, organising and running a Guiding Jubilee tea party (which went really well) - boy, was I shattered at the end of the day!
So the weekly challenge was to use this sketch, with a photos about a man in your life. We then had the added challenge of using paints/mists/inks, mixed alphas and ric rac (the challenge was set by The Ric Rac Ravers team - thanks ladies for a great challenge)
I am still on my stash busting mission so reached for an old kit from 2010 I think - Sarah's Cards' February kit; Lily Bee - Vintage Poppy. I then grabbed a photo of Tony that I love from our holiday in Kefalonia a few years ago. There is a tag behind the papers which details how we are soul mates and that we are still going strong 18 years on (when they said it would never last!)
I then had just enough left to make a 8 1/2 x 11 page which is the size I am using for my childhood photos. My Dad took everything on slide format back then so if I print them too big they lose their clarity. I copied another page I had already made at Sarah's Cards retreat in 2010 and based it on that. It was a class from one of the DT but I can't remember who now (help me out somebody?!)
I think I may have enough to squeeze a card out of the rest - may give that a go tonight!
