I hope you're having a lovely weekend. The weather here has been great this week -
just typical back to school weather!
Our scrap map challenge at Creative Craft World was postponed for a week, due to the birthday blog hop we had.
Thank you so much to everyone who took part and thank you too for all the comments on my blog.
I loved reading them :) I'd like to say a big 'hello' to my new followers too, not just from the blog hop but to those of you who signed up during the summer months too!
Well, today we have a fabulous sketch from Sue and it would be wonderful
if you could join us in the scrapbook challenge this month.
The winner is chosen by the DT and gets a fab prize, a generous discount in the shop and a GDT spot for the next challenge!
This is my take on the scrap map.
Regular readers of my blog will have seen this photo before... I posted it on the children's first day back at school. How difficult is it to get two children to look at the camera at the same time?
I took lots of photos and I still didn't manage it..... lol
I made a little mini book for more photos and hidden journaling and tied it closed with twine and a little owl charm.
The patterned papers are DCWV 'school days' I think and I've had them for ages.
For the 'chalkboard' I cut a 10" square from pepper bazzill swiss dot paper and distressed the edges.
Then I dabbed along the edges and swiped across the front of the card with a white paint dabber.
Using Elzybells white pigment ink I stamped TPC Studio 'teacher' stamps all over the black card (stamping off on scrap card first) to make it appear 'chalked'.
This is the inside of the wee book and it has individual photos of each child and a little bit of journaling. (some of the details I've kept private)
The large WRMK brads were a real bargain I got ages ago but I always knew they'd come in handy some day!
The title was cut from a sheet of matching paper and I created a string line across the chalkboard and attached the card card to it with a patterned peg from Making Memories.
You'll find the scrap map for Creative Craft World here.
I hope it inspires you to take part in the challenge.
Thanks for popping in today
and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
I'd like to enter this in MIM linky party.
