Show Us Your Stuff - July

Well it's Day one of the school holidays and I 
have had a shocking headache all day! 
Caused through lake of sleep I think not the kids, although
their usual level of loud hasn't helped!
Haha, it doesn't not bode well for me!

ok onto the scrappy stuff.

How funky is this paper typewriter?
Well this is the prompt you need to use to create a layout for July
at Show Us Your Stuff.
Plus of course you need to have a handmade item of some type on your layout
as per usual.

Here's my sample.

I went with the colours of the keys and a dot template from 
crafters workshop as my inspiration from the picture.
You'll see I've gone with a bit of a 'Christmas in July' theme with 
my recent layouts. It's only taken me seven months to get to them!

Here's my handmade item, a pinwheel from 'rainbow splendor'.
I've also got a tissue paper flower and a canvas heart on there too.

My journalling is typed with my little 'Stott' portable typewriter.  
My Dad picked it up for me at a second hand market for only $5, what a Bargain! 
Thank-you Dad! :)

So that's another way the picture inspired me with my layout.

Go take a look at the other Creative team inspiration for this challenge 
on the SUYS blog.
In case you haven't read it on the SUYS blog I want to let you know that as of this month we are only 
having the one challenge which will run for the entire month. So I hope we get lots of 
entries. You have until the July 31st to link your LO.

Of course we still have our Sophie's corner challenge each month for junior scrappers.
So if the kids would like to scrap a blog challenge just like mum, here's their chance. 
Great time for it too if your kids are on holidays too.
bye for now.  :)
