just go for it!!!

Honey I'm home!!!

after watching Shimelles very inspirational video recorded for try scrap last year i got into the mood of cutting things up. her video gave you a step by step challenge to using one kit of stash and turning it into a LOT of pages....

we had to use 9 card stock sheets, 7 patterned papers and other embellishments and alphas.... (I just used my latest studio calico kit, and other scraps i had in the box that i have used this week to go with it.)
we were then told to randomly cut all but 1 of the patterned papers into different size pieces. 
I had great fun doing this, altho think it may have been a lot easier with a paper trimmer, i only have my trusty knife and ruler!!
then you just create.

Shimelle suggested starting with a double page.... so i did...i also used a rough sketch that i made of her double page layout as  a basis for my page.

 and as an extra challenge to myself... I just made the page and found photos afterwards........ I never do this so it made a nice change, and it meant i got to really look through some older pictures and do some scrapping about those.

these pictures were taken in 2009 at Noahs Ark zoo farm.... can't get over how little all the kids look.... it was a fun day and i think this is reflected in the bright colours of the layout.

thanks for looking xxx
