I managed to make a page for Another Freaking Scrapping Challenge. I have meant to enter their challenges for a long time and support Anne in her venture but I have never had the time, so this month, I made it my mission !!
So here was the brief:
scrap your school days – your own school days incorporating three of: a photo of you back in the day, or a momento from those years , perhaps: a song title, lyrics or album cover from that era, your favourite school subject, or a page from one of your texts, diaries or notebooks , a scan or your yearbook – whatever is representative of your school days. Maybe you could include a memory of those days in your blog posting. We'd prefer if you scrap your own school days - as we like to encourage our followers to scrap about themselves to leave a legacy for their family - but you can scrap your children's school days if you prefer.
I also saw another challenge on Scrap Fit that I thought I could use where this week, you have to write your journalling around something.
And because I might as well try to fit in as many challenges as I can when I am busy, I thought I could try Scrapbookers Anonymous where this month, the lovely Lea and her friends encourage you to use die cuts !
And this is what I came up with:
The journalling is about ten Things I remember from my school years, ranging from the name of my favorite teachers to the games I liked to play. This photo really makes me smile as it looks very much like a picture of my little boy and both my children looked puzzled when they saw my page. Why would Harry be in that classroom ?!! The little people are cut from old sewing books of the 1970 and the dominoes are there because I used to love playing this game with my grandad, again and again.
I hope that you have a nice weekend. Think about me when the girls are still giggling and chatting at 2 in the morning !!
PS. Thank you to the very lovely ladies at Sketch in Thyme who chose me as their favourite this month, I will definitely play again soon.
