Well I may have needed an extra day but I am happy to say that I have managed to accomplish something I previously thought impossible - that is completing all 30 sketches for the SFS Sketch-a-day challenge. When I first read about the challenge I thought to myself, yeah right as if I will ever get through that. However, to my surprise I did. Personally, I think the real reason why I made it through this challenge was the fact that we have just had two weeks of school holidays - there is no way I would have ever been able to scrap this much normally. So here are the last 3 layout for the month.
Layout 1 - Sept 30 Sketch After seeing one of Lauren's layouts the other day - a Christmas one - I was inspired. The criteria for this sketch were to use 3 or more different papers, two photos, border punch or hand scallops, hand journal and multi alpha title. I think I managed all that lol.
Layout 2: Sept 29 Sketch The extra criteria for this sketch were to use a household item behind the title (mine is a recycled orange bag) and strip journalling.
Closeup of some of A Lil Somethin's latest release which was school-themed but I loved the apple and it fitted with my title so why not? lol
Layout 3: Sept 28 Sketch - a sketch from Sassy Lil Sketches. Yet another wedding photo (yes, I am picking my chin up off the floor too lol)
I didn't really think the banner on the original sketch fitted the photo so I swapped it for butterflies. I think it looks ok. Simple but passable lol
After a few months of nagging, Tony came home the other day with a yabby net for the boys. Early this morning the three of them headed up to the dam on the western side of the farm armed with a bag of meat and the net. We all went back after lunchtime to see if there was anything in the net. We expected maybe one or two but there were closer to 40 yabbies much to the squeals and delights of two little boys.
I love how the simplest things can give them so much pleasure - seriously, who would have thought a few bits of old meat and a dam could make them happy.Looks like someone needs to have a party and invite his shirt down - either that or I need to find some new farm clothes for him lol.
That's all for now. Thanks for stopping by.
