Another day of frantic scrapping

We have had another day of frantic scrapping with 6 challenges today, one of them mine I made a digi kit up for people to use and also a sketch, it was really exciting to see the results and to have my kits used
This is the pages I did with it as an example quite simple because I was trying to encourage folk who have never dabbled in digi to give it a go.

I only did one class today and that was a challenge to scrap using 8 or 10 of something to denote October and to use string for the fun of conkers at this time of the year. I chose to do it digitally
The Conker
I did this one quite differently to usual as I felt the photo on its own was not that important but I wanted to journal about conkers. This is what I wrote (in case you find it difficult to read it off the layout)
Bright shiny brown spheres of tactile loveliness. The conker beckons old and young alike. Placed in a bowl to ward off spiders and make a decorative display, or hung from a string to exhibit hardness in the age old playground game of conker king.
We seldom give thought to the real purpose of reproduction, but for the Horse Chestnut’s sake, thank the Lord, we miss quite a few in our collecting of these beauties
Then as they sink beneath the shed leaves they bury themselves into the soft earth there to lay dormant until the spring when fresh shoot appear a new tree begins it’s life and in years to come will complete the cycle, and give delight to a new generation of young and old alike


I have enjoyed this weekend of scrapping fun and have many more projects lined up from other classes not yet tackled.
I also have a layout from Saturday morning which is waiting for a title so must get that one done.

Great journaling, 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
