I would love to not have to go to sleep for a few days, just so I can get some stuff done that I WANT to do right now, rather than HAVE to do, know what I mean?!
This page was for Shimelle's challenge to do some fancy cutting. I cut this polaroid frame on my silhouette but kept the picture almost at the original size so that I could use the grass in the photo to fill the negative space.
I'm also using the same range of punches throughout the album.
I lent farmer Nigel my fleece because he was trying to put his bare arm too far in the oven and it ended up getting holes in it from the embers! He was so embarrassed but I didn't mind at all, its old anyway and now it has another story to add to its memories.
Last one for today. Another one from the pile of "had photos and some papers but nothing else" and when I saw the challenge for adding a letter, it sounded the perfect way to round up this layout. The picture is of Louis dashing about with his camera at a castle in Pembrokeshire and it sums him up perfectly.
The letter inside the scrap-a-lope is written to Louis explaining what he was like at that age and how he loved this castle and everything that was going on there. He took loads of pictures of random things but all the time with this huge smile on his face, appreciating the scale of the building and the different way they lived there. He has such a zest for life and one day in the future when he is flicking through this album, I want him to know that I love that so much about him.
Bye for now
