Not so keen on getting up in the dark this morning, it will make it up to me this evening when I’m driving home in the light, and I will be able to run later.
Scrapping and setting up this blog yesterday was therapeutic and I ended up quite pleased with what I made. After the yellow layout I made at the retreat for a weekly challenge, I have been quite daring for me on that side of the colour wheel
This was for the challenge on UKS this week, unfortunately I had used bunting last week so now I had to use it again, but actually I am quite pleased with it. Last week it was layered pennants which was a bit fiddly.
The papers were from Laura at the retreat and I love how they came out with the photos.
The two photos were from the last few weeks at school in 1990, although a lot of us stayed on for sixth form. The top one is of the girls v boys netball, we played them at football as well. I can’t remember who won, but I remember howling with laughter. I expect the girls won, right?
If you squint, I am the player in the back row with the Centre tab and the blonde, 3 in from the right is Darren, my first serious boyfriend from 15-17!
The other photo has horrid light, I have scanned it in before I have used it and added some light and contrast so it looks better but I have no ink so I went with the original. It is of another gang of us loitering in the fifth year common room.
Here is a close up of the stamped image which was one of the ‘required elements’, this was from the first stamp set I bought, which I think is still my most oft used. I coloured with my copics, and used rock candy stickles, now it has properly dried overnight it looks great.
30 points, probably my last this month as I have lots of cards to make……
