All kinds of Inspiration

Creative Scrappers sketch

A couple of weeks ago the boys had their school play- while Nancy and I were waiting for the show she took some photos of herself to keep her entertained and to stop me from going mad with the "when is it going to start?" questioning

As you can see I'm still with the spots but the paper went so well with Nancy's leggings

Oh and the background paper is some old Hambly paper
Colour scheme and sketch

I used the sketch from Created by A trip down Memory Lane and the colour scheme from the Studio challenges for this LO- Its Nancy pulling a silly face and the title is " I just love your silly face" I stitched across some of the strips of paper to add a bit of interest.

The strip across the top is because I had already cut into this paper and needed to make it up to full 12x12 size
Chicken Soup picture

The Mojo Chicken Soup blog always some unusual inspiration and this Lo was based on their latest picture.

The photo is Nancy at school waiting for the boys to come out. There is a ramp in the hall that all the little ones use as a slide. I thought I'd take a picture of her playing on it as its now her last few days before she starts school and can't play on it any more- Its not long till her life will change forever- hence the title "Last Days"
And these were the inspirations can you match them up ( its not that difficult)
