This may be the last time, well for a few weeks anyway

Before you get over excited I'm not talking about my blogging, just in sharing layouts.  

Several weeks ago I seemed to be running low on photos to scrap.  Well done me, or so I thought.... I just found loads of photos I had put in divided protectors waiting to be scrapped.

But as I had forgotten their existence I did a trawl through my digital photos to chose some for printing.  I also decided to get some older photos printed out and as like to use 2 or 3 on a layout I edited 2 onto a 6 x 4 photo.

I have been using the fab sketches over on ScrapMuch? this month - I hope I get the chance to use them next month too.  I loved the clean lines of the sketch and chose 2 of the very old photos to use.

I had to jiggle the placement of the journaling due to my title taking up the original space, other than that I kept very much to the sketch.

These are photos from 2006 and I just can't believe how little my 3 used to be!  At the time the boys seemed so grown up.  I used a mishmash of papers - the chevron background was from a 6x6 pad, I hid the join between papers with the embellishment cluster!  I used my Jen Hadfield Pebbles die set to cut the polaroid frame, chevron arrows and hearts, and stamped then cut out the 'heart' this arrow.  I even sprayed the paper with mist (as in the sketch) despite not having a good track record with this :)

I have had to photograph the page in poor light so it doesn't look its best but I am trying to hit the entry deadline!

Thanks for taking the time to visit me.
