UKS Weekly Challenge - April Week 3

After a little accident involving a hot oven , some cooking oil and my decolletage I found myself at home yesterday and while for most of it I lay on the sofa I managed to put together this page for the weekly challenge over on UKS in the afternoon.

The challenge was;

  • Scrap something or someone you love (10 points)
  • Use the colour palette (10 points)
  • Use a shaped element on your page (10 points)
I stuck as close to the colour palette as possible using an old Sarah's Cards Kit - Paper Trunk.  I scrapped a photo from our recent trip to the Lakes as I love them; their beauty, the walking it offers and the fact that a lot of my ancestors are from the South Lakes makes me feel I have a connection there.  I've used a few shaped elements - fussy cut flowers, circles and a ticket stub to embellish.

The photo is made up of three separate shots of Wast Water which I have stitched together using Photo Merge in PSE.  A great little tool!

Back to the hospital for me this morning to have my dressings changed and then a little more recuperation scrapping time I think!

Lovely use of colors in your layout today.

oooh Julia that doesn't sound good - wishing you a speedy recovery x I love the photo and had a closer look after seeing that it was three photos - you would never know. I like how you have kept the focus of the layout centralised x

Oh no Julia, that sounds really painful, I hope you are ok! Beautiful layout, I love how the paper kind of replicates the mountain :D

Sandra said...

Oh my gosh, I hope you're ok! Well I'm glad to see your injuries haven't effected your scrapping xxx

Wishing you quick healing - don't forget the bio oil once it has healed to help reduce the scar.

Lovely layout xx
