A summer CC on a bleak wet weekend


What better way to spend a very wet weekend that doing an Online Crop
I have had plenty of inspiration from the challenges and have also managed to dodge the rain and get some photos
Friday I managed to do these layouts

First challenge was a colour combo one to use Red Aqua and white I wanted to use this photo in its original state ie tattered and torn, so I took a photo of the photo, erasing the background and giving it a shadow to lift it from the page.
Old Photo

Next a simple sketch challenge. I did this with a couple of photos, taken in the rain, of the invasive bindweed

I am now really inspired and enjoying this so much. I don't get any interruptions as there is no one else here. All I have to do is make sure I get up from the computer occasionally and get myself something to eat and drink

Next we have a circle challenge
Baby Ben
I haven't done many of Ben so this was my opportunity to rectify that.

The final one for Friday for me was a very simple one using black and white photos, this fitted in perfectly for the first page of a minibook I am doing for my second grandson's 1st year book.
New Parents

In between each scrapbook challenge there is a photography challenge these must be taken during this weekend
here are a few of my efforts

I thought this was fascinating but I am sure that passers by thought I was crazy

Again lots of fabulous LO's and some lovely photos - I am glad you are enjoying Shimelles CC Mary :)

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
