Scrapping instead of housework

Tut tut, Mary, I was supposed to do housework today, instead I have been scrapping, nothing new then.
I did manage to do a little bit of the housework, stripped the bed and put the cleaner over, renewed a light bulb, little jobs like that. Trouble is that Monday morning we get the weekly challenge on UKScrapper and I love to get my teeth into it right away, especially if I have lots of new photos to scrap with, and as my Son and his family have just come back from Center Parcs I have quite a few.
Today's challenge criteria are
random misting or splattering of paint on background
use numbers 
use symbol 
use ribbon 
Once I had done some splattering I thought they looked a bit like falling leaves and from there the rest of the idea for the layout developed
Falling Leaves
I have also done the Can I Canoe layout again this time as a paper one, I did print the digital version but, somehow, once printed it didn't look so good hence the need to do with paper and things
Can I Canoe IRL
I used glossy accents to make the splashes and string for the rope. I didn't have the anchor charm so used three little fish charms instead

I have also finished another one of the Pencil Line sketches for their birthday challenges this time Sketch 145

Today I am grateful for being able to scrap when I want
having food already prepared
not having to go out for anything

I just *love* how you turned the digi layout into a paper one! And hey, scrapping is much better for your emotional wellbeing than housework.... xx

Gorgeous LOs Mary. Glad you're playing along with the Pencillines birthday bash too. I've avoided housework today by crafting too. Now I've got a busy morning ahead of me as I have company tomorrow lunchtime and I have craft goodies everywhere!! Oops xx

You've been a busy girl! Great LO - very cute photos. Thanks for joining in.

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
