Wednesday Words

So now it's time to print the photos from the flying visit of my grandsons and get some scrapbook pages completed.  I found a couple of new to me challenge blogs and thought I'd give them a go.

The first one is 1-2-3 Get Scrappy where you have to choose three in a row from a grid of nine squares - a bit like tic-tac-toe.  So I went straight down the right hand side and used - rectangle shapes, gears or cogs & a blue background. 

The second challenge is Once Upon A Sketch and this month the theme is 'anything goes'. There is also a journalling requirement for this challenge - never usually a problem for me as I love journalling - but for this layout Iwanted to just jot down the things he's into right now so I'm not sure if it will be considered enough.  But as I loved their sketch and the DT examples, I thought I'd give it a go any way. 
So here's my page:

I started by using a cog mask that has been lurking in my stash for ever - so long I've lost the packaging and have no idea of the make. I picked up on the mustardy yellow and blue from his pyjamas for the inking.

Next I matted the photo on three sides and found some labels for my journalling. I added a bold title and finished the page off with three sets of three sprinkles to draw the eye in. 

Quite a CAS looking page, obviously my card making style is beginning to influence my scrapping too!

Paper: Bazill Basics cardstock
Ailphas: AC thickers, subway
Stamp: daisy bucket
Inks: Staz-On, jet black; SU, pacific point & daffodil delight
Labels: October Afternoon, sidewalks
Embellishments: doodlebug sprinkles, bumblebee & day to day 

So glad you dropped by today, thank you! Don't forget to check out the current AAA Cards game - there's a $20:00 prize up for grabs and a free digi too.
