Had a massive day today with our inter-house carnival. Took lots of photos for the school magazine and even ran in two races (much to the students' utter disbelief - they were like you can run? wtf? are you sure? hehe). Gotta love kids who assume that just because you might be carrying around a few (ok a lot of) extra kgs that you are incapable of doing anything. But at the end of the day, to me it is all about getting out there and having a go and giving it your best shot. Not everyone can be a winner but everyone can be a participant.
On the scrapping front, plugging away slowly with some L/O's and trying to get my head around the Wacom I bought at the Point Shoot Play class a fortnight ago. Got the second half of the class tomorrow so hoping that will be just as great as the first. Have only got 3 bits of showntell but it is better than none:
Mitch just loves the farm - cannot get enough of it and of course, he thinks he is so important having 'work clothes' just like dad. Thank goodness for King G and John Deere for making a little boy's life so happy.
I rarely use yellow in my scrapping, however, with Lachlan's swim shirt being so bright (and yellow), I had to get myself out of my comfort zone and try some out. Absolutely loving the yellow paper I used on this LO - it is by Chatterbox and it is flocked - yep beasties, flocking heck it is flocked hehehehe.
Just had to include a pic of this too - a button flourish that I experimented with - have to say, am quite happy with how it looks, and it is YELLOW lol.
Last bit of sharing was inspired by a LO I found in the 2peas gallery that was created by an Aussie, Mel Nunn. Totally love the work she has on display on her blog at the moment. Fantastic boy pages - of course I am always gunna love someone' work who can scrap boy pages so brilliantly. The border is a Hambly transparency but hard to get a pic off - that is the floors of the verandah showing through there. Make sure you go check out Mel's work on her blog or even over at 2peas.
Just a pic trying to show you the transparency.
Here is a link for Mel's blog: http://melnunn.typepad.com/welcome_to_my_life/ . Really have to work out how to hyperlink their name's within the text. Ideas anyone???Adios for now.
