Getting scrappy:

Took the afternoon to puddle about in the mess I call my scrapbook space today. I really should clean it up. I could then locate more embellishments to use - rather than pushing through the mess and using whatever I come up with! But the energy required to do that - well..Let's just show you what I used that for instead:

Scrap the girls:



The challenge was to use:

2 alphas
flowers
more than one photo
staples..

Now at the time of creation..I couldn't put my hand on the stapler. ( Found stapler staples added and they are there to see now!) You can umm..probably work out umm.. why..With the mess I call a scrap space...So it is missing that..I will still enter it and be sure that I will add them later..It relates to the journaling from this post and I have a hidden  behind one of the photos to incorporate it..

Also, I don't know that my images are particularly clear at the moment?? Not sure what's going on there?
Anywho....Felt a bit inspired to mist and stamp today. Possibly because I had a bit more time up my sleeve..But I dug out some old stamps for this one. I started out quite slowly..The first layout I created I dumped. Seriously, struggled with a more 'arty' type of background, so I turned to a sketch to help get me off the ground.. I love Em Straface's Page Drafts sketch blog and I used this one:
  

So feeling inspired and with the children playing happily ( read: making a giant mess) I kept going and fluffed around in an old box of supplies.. I found some old chipboard letters and then came up with this:



This layout is for the Once Upon A Sketch challenge this month:
Again I used some stamps and a pen and bowl from my kitchen...To trace around..I misted on a tag again.. Oh and I flipped this sketch as well..

Thanks for looking...
