Friday Focus

I've not been doing a lot of scrapbooking lately, so I decided to look for a challenge and get those papers out!  As I mostly scrap boys one of my favourite starting points is the challenge at Scrap The Boys. This month they have a moody blue board to inspire.

I recently received a photo of one of my grandsons new hair cut. Now this made me smile as I could remember when this fashion for tramlines hit back when my sons were young. But I couldn't remember which of them had it done to their hair - wish I'd heard about memory keeping back then!

Having checked with his dad apparently he had them cut into the back of his hair and so did my youngest son. Now the trend is just for one side. I'll be adding this extra info to the page - the journalling is so important to help us remember things!

I've still got a few chipboard pieces and stickers left from Cocoa Vanilla's Boy's Rule collection - easily my most favourite range recently. I shall be so sad to finish using it up and may just have to buy it all over again! Anyway I made a huge cluster of embellishments to the left of the photo and added just a few to the right. 

I finished off with three trios of enamel dots placed to frame all the page elements.

Papers: Bo Bunny, Summer Mood & Double Dot; Bella Blvd, Secrets of the Sea
Stickers & Chipboard: Cocoa Vanilla, Boys Rule
Embellishments: Enamel Dots, Echo Park, A Perfect Winter

Thanks so much for looking today, it's been a pleasure to have your company.

And keep crafting!
