I have received alot of positive comments on my ability to find time to scrap with five kids.. So here is how I do - some of the time anyways..Last week I didn't scrap. My desk was a bomb site and it stayed that way...BUT I cooked healthy meals all week, I did all the washing (and put some of it away!) ...SO this Monday when Rodda was on night shift we had leftover homemade sausage rolls, peas, raw beans (the girls love them uncooked) and this allowed me the extra time to scrap. Ryley J was sleeping and the girls were all playing happily and I immersed myself in tape and paper and paint:
Kraft It Up:
The challenge this month was a timeline. So here it is. My mister blue experiencing his first easter egg. I didn't journal that minute after I took these shots he swallowed green foil seconds before I could fish it out....Have been playing with paint again. I must admit that I do find it tiresome though. Al the washing up and drying time. Might have to invest in a heat gun - because in spite of my attitude I really do like the effect! Old easter stickers used up - check. Old basic grey chipboard title - check.
Once Upon A Sketch:
Based upon this lovely sketch by Nadia. Naturally I have tortured it... I always have difficulty with pastels. So I am not enirely happy with it. But I love the photos. So I love it. Paint again. Misted lace. Hand cut hearts. An old American Craft Lizzy sticker up there on the left..
Scrap the Boys:
I love everything about this layout. The fact that all the photos are separated. Highly unusual for me. I love the little guitar and the typewriter..Again with the painting - and this time stamping - ooh aah...lalala..
Thanks for looking...What leftovers can I fill my kids with tonight???
