Shimelle sketch. this time I changed it slightly so that there were only two photos. The strange pose in the bottom picture is because Nancy was posing as One Direction- she says this is how they stand when they sing- haven't noticed it myself.

This LO is for the June sketch challenge at Scrap Our Stash. The sketch can be seen at the blog ( follow the link at the side) but the challenge also involves using up scraps of paper, using tags and twine or jute as well.
Its called French Chatuea and the pictures are of our visit to a local castle when we went to France last summer. there are three tags on there and a couple of shades of twine as well. Nancy is the cold grumpy child in the first picture- it was very windy and you couldn't go inside so we left quite quickly and went to watch some showjumping instead

Ok so I thought I would challenge myself again with a limited range of supplies and see how many LOs I could get out of them. This time I chose 10 papers which are double sided which gives me more options and as many pieces of Kraft as I wanted to make the LOs. Here are my papers
And the other side of those papers
and this is the first LO I made from those papers i just went with the title on the journalling block as my title for the LO- its called Good Times. the photo is Stanley and Nancy at the football match and considering our team , Wolves, has just been relegated a photo from last season when we were still in the Championship was good times. Notice Nacy is wearing a scarf from the season before , which reads Premier Wolves, because we were relegated last year as well. lets hope for better luck next season

The picture below shows the scraps that I had left. I reckon I could get another LO out of them if I wanted but I am going to move onto a second challenge with a new set of paper. the problem is that if I can get this many LOs out of a limited supply of paper can I justify all the paper that I buy. think I may need to rethink something ( but maybe not the paper buying)

For this LO I used six small oblongs of paper of mostly equal size. They were matched up to the size of portions of the journaling bits paper. One scrap was too small so I added some punched border to the bottom.

So for my 1000th post I decided to repost my first ever blog post. I was quite thrilled when I scrolled back to the beginning and found this LO I made of my daughter and my husband. It has inspired me to try and use a few more large scale photos on my LOs and to use my fancy camera a bit more as the photos always turn out so well.

Why did I need the yellow slide in the picture? The rest of the challenge is to use at least five brads on the LO. Now I don't really have many brads but I had managed to rustle up six yellow ones, so I chose the papers and the photos to go with the brads.

1. A gold title ( I managed part gold with some green)
2. A fence ( I made mine from strips of paper
