Working Hard

Good morning scrappy friends!  Well, right night it's the middle of the night.  Can't sleep so I'm drinking coffee and scrapping!  Hope I can scrap a page or two later in the day as I'll be busy for the next two days with school meetings to become a substitute teacher and sleepovers and movies!  Summer is ending too quickly for me....I'm going to miss my kids when they go back to school in two weeks!  Wow, two weeks will be the first day of school!

Anyway....here is a LO I completed the other day.  I don't really like it.  I tried different things...writing on a very busy patterned papers, using a very busy patterned paper as the background, ugh...it's awful, and what's up with that inking circling the photos? It's like Jaws circle the boat!  Just awful..nothing really matches, but it's going into the scrap album for my daughter.  Not every thing I create am I going to love.  That's life though, the possibility of disappointments and ugly things.  My next LO won't be disappointing nor ugly...at least I hope not!

I'm entering this LO into these chalenges:

Scrap Our Stash Challenge
Scrap Our Stash - August Sketch + 3 - I used various manufacturers, washi tape and Xyron.  I love the sketch that was provided so I'm sure I will use it again...and it will be prettier!

Picture This ! Challenge Blog
Picture This! - Not so Picture Perfect - I wasn't thrilled with these pictures as I was taking them!  My daughter was the furthest student from me, but at least I was able to take some photos of her learning self defense!

Growing Strong

Hello my scrappy friends!  Quick post this evening as I'm off to bed soon!  We all seem to be quite tired for various reasons so it's an early night for the entire house!  Perhaps I'll wake so refreshed I can get more then half of a layout completed during the day!

Here is a layout I created, more to come, about my daughter learning some self defense moves tow years ago.  I used Cricut cartridges Robotz for the title and Art Philosophy for the arrows.  Some STAMPlorations stamps were used for the circles, arrows and distressed edges.

This layout is going to be entered into the following challenges:
Stick It Down - single page sketch
Stick it Down 
Sketch-N-Scrap -  Sketch #111 - love those arrows and layers!!
Sketch ~N~ Scrap

STAMPlorations Anything Goes - I used pieces from the Mixed Media Elements and the Mixed Media Grunge stamp sets.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting!  Have a wonderful day!!
