'One Rainy June Afternoon 1998' - For Once Upon A Sketch and 7 Dots Studio

Hello all!
I had some time over this past weekend to do some scrapping and I decided to do the Challenge 
at Once Upon A...Sketch.   I've done a couple of the sketches here over the last months and I must say
I really like that they get me thinking about my journalling and ensuring it's meaningful.
I love scrapping for the pure enjoyment of playing with paper and and stencils and mediums -
yes all the fun messy stuff!  But it's easy to lose sight of the memory keeping side of scrapping amongst all that product so I'm thankful that this challenge is 
'keeping me honest' I guess you could say.
Here's the sketch for April.
Journalling Theme: "An event that changed my life..." 

I've also used the current challenge at 7 Dots Studio
 "April showers bring May flowers" 

Here's what I created. 
'One Rainy June Afternoon 1998'
I scrapped a current picture of my Husband and I but as you'll see further down it's about 
a mementous day we shared in 1998 which I have no pictures from - pre-digital - so we didn't take
thousands of photo's back then!
Another reason to be thankful for this challenge.  
I would never, normally have scrapped this memory because I had no photo of it!

 As per the flower theme from the 7 Dots Studio challenge I've included lots of flowers on 
my page.  Most of them I've altered either by adding Prima Chalk ink or Colour Shine sprays, layering them on top of each other and securing with a brad to make a larger flower. 

These close ups are of the background work using Izink inks and Luminarte Elementals.
On the background I've also used one of the newer Prima Stencils with modelling paste and 
rubbons for texture.

The papers layered behind my photo's are from the 7 Dots Studio, 
9th Wave collection and the base paper is from the 
Messy Head collection. 

Here's my Journalling.  There was a lot!! 
So I printed it out on three tags and stuck them together with tape so it can all be folded and slipped behind the photo.   I guess it's basically all about the day my Husband and I decided to commit to each other,  eighteen months after this day we got married and started our family.  
 It amazes me -because my memory of past events is usually not the best- that I can remember little details about this day so many years later. The rain, the football match - I guess it just shows that it was a pivotal moment in our lives. 

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a look at my blog.

Hello bloggers, thank you for stopping by my blog. :)
I have my page for Scrap Around The World to share with you today.

I quite often find pictures on our iCloud account that the kids have taken with their iPods.
Some of them are hilarious but I particularly liked these ones of my Daughter taking some selfies.

Here's the board I based my page around.
I went with the colours obviously plus the glasses theme, and I also used the crackle image
using a similar texture stamp on my background. 

 Some close-ups.

Thanks Tarrah McLean for the wood veneer sunglasses.  xx
They were the perfect finishing touch.
I love them!

 Here's a close up of the crackle stamp from KaiserCraft.

 Another wood veneer this one is from A Piece of Cake Designs.

 And another pair of sunnies! Why not!? Had them in the stash for ages so I may as well
use them!

Scrap The Boys - April challenge

Hello this is my post for the Scrap the Boys Blog Challenge.
The challenge this month is to use flowers on your page.

Wanting to challenge myself as well as mix it up a bit I tried not to use to many 
actual paper flowers, actually I've just used one.  Instead I stamped my flowers with a dylusions
stamp and then coloured them by painting them with Gelatos.

I used papers from the Heidi Swapp Mixed Company and Color Wash range.
So I hope you can join us this month and Scrap a page of your boy/s or man with flowers on the page.
Link your page up over HERE.
