Sketchy Scrappers March Sketch

Thank you for the good wishes on my Sunday post.  My burn is healing OK but I will be needing dressing changes for a couple of weeks yet.  At least it was not deep as I jumped straight in a cold shower - thank heavens for basic first aid training - and I will be buying lots of new high neck tops to wear this summer!

Anyway, on to the Sketchy Scrappers challenge.  Last month Lisa set the sketch and she chose this one with two pics...

I'm trying to use challenges to finish my document 2012 (and as I'm not even half way yet l I've a long way to go!) so picked some pics from April of my daughter at her dance show last year.  We didn't know at the time but it was to be the last one as she decided to give up her lessons on entering Year 10.  I guess with homework, Guides and spending time with her friends something had to give.

I used (yes, you guessed it!) and old Sarah's Cards kit; Pebbles - Linnie Bell as the colours went well with her costume, just adding some Jenni Bowlin butterflies .

I then made this page to go the right of the layout documenting my numbers for the month and some other things we did;

And then because I'm all about using up my old kits at the moment I pulled out the last full sheet of patterned paper and made this one (it is straight in real life I promise!);

I have to say these aren't my favourite pages ever.  I really don't love the paper anymore but I can't justify throwing anything away so it had to be used!

I think I'll count how many more Sarah's kits I've got left to use - most only have two pages in them at best.  I might even start a countdown ticker lol!

Great layouts, and well done you using them all up!

So sorry to read about the accident and hope it heals well and quickly. Your pages are full of interesting texture and colour - I wish I was as productive as this!

Must admit that was one kit I struggled to use and I still have lots left as the papers are not me at all - I will still keep chipping away at using them.

Anyway you have done justice to the kit and done some lovely layouts xx

I love your philosophy of using it all up and wish I could be as productive and to as good an end! It's natural that you will love some pages above others, especially when you get kits so not everything will be to your taste. I hope your burn is healing nicely and not interfering with your scrapping time! x

In a few years time when we all look back at our layouts, will we think, oh old papers were used! Err no. So well done for enjoying and using up older kits :)
