Scrap the boys September challenge
Again this month I have given the Scrap the boys challenge a go, and for September the challenge was DOMESITICATED. I had the perfect photo for this one, showing my two boys - husband and son, having a go at something domesticated. I decided to use a comical slant to my journaling for this one, don't want to get too serious. My boys do actually do the dishes and other domesticated stuff, perhaps not as often as I would like, but they do it.
I really enjoyed this challenge, and had a bit of fun creating my background. The very old Love Elsie patterned paper worked fantastically for my layout, and with a bit of creativity, I've turned old into new again. I love how the current trend of "project life" style cards can fit in with just about anything, and they added that bit of up to date to the old paper. I also used the Irresistables texture spray on my layout, particularly noticable on the arrow, it is really cool spray that has a resist nature to it, but also adds a bit of texture with a glossy feel to it.
This photo was taken 6 years ago, after a Christmas dinner with friends, how lucky was I to have it. Kieran has really matured a bit since this was taken, lol.
Thanks for looking at my layout.
