Scrapping (that is not fighting I might add)is the art of making memories out of our photos and using design and artistic abilities to make the pages stand out and attract attention to the events recorded.
Well that is the intention, whether that is what happens when I put a page together only others can really say. I enjoy doing them, usually feel deflated when a page is finished, so to get my fix of satisfaction I have to start another page almost immediately and feel very let down if I don't have any mojo (that's inspiration by the way).
so here are the pages I have been working on for the last few days
UKScrappers challenge for this week was to scrap with Green, pink and white. use either blossom or apples (the team setting the challenge are called Scrap Apples) because Monday was May Day the day when Maypole dancing on the village green takes place we were to use intertwining ribbons and we were to follow a given sketch.
Here is my digital version of the challenge using photos taken last month that I really wanted to scrap.
I loved the sketch so when I was looking through some of my unfinished pages (of which I seemed to have quite a few) I found one started 2 years ago. It needed updating quite a bit as I have learnt a lot of new techniques in that time and was the perfect page to use the sketch again.
Another updated layout that I started 3 years ago
And finally a page finished today that I started at the beginning of the week, this time one using real paper and buttons and bits and bobs
today I am thankful for the rain staying away
for the company of my two cats
and for a lovely mixed grill meal tonight
