Challenge YOUrself

I haven't made a layout for a scrap challenge in absolutely ages.  But this gorgeous page by Gemma

put me in mind of a photo I was wanting to scrap AND the title to go with it.

So here is my take on the 'Keep Calm' challenge from the Challenge Yourself blog.


I was a chunk of the way through the title when I realised I had run out of the letter 's',  but I like to think it still works.  It is hubby and I on the Isle of Wight from a couple of years ago.  (Too much sun brings on my rosacea, hence the pink face).  I have used a mix of older My Minds Eye papers, some Kaisercraft 'All that glitters' 6.5" x 6.5" papers, a few echo park stickers (including the alpha's) , MME enamel dots and some items from the Simple Stories 'I Am' collection.
I don't scrap me anywhere near enough - so perhaps I need to join in with all the challenges from this site!
Thanks for stopping by
