Forest Run

Hello everyone!!
Sorry it's been awhile since my last post. Have been working on some organizing and general types of things here while the kids are at school and I will have a post ready to go about that soon! For today, I have a new layout to share!
I  am not a big vintage scrapper but had to try it for a Challenge this month  over at Sisterhood of Scrap. Even on this vintage LO, you can see that I am a relatively simple scrapper. That's the way I like it!
Here you go!

"Forest Run"
Daniel, Fall 2010
Photos by Kate and her friend Katelynn
I am so  happy with the way it turned out! :)


Here are the coolest photos of Daniel, EVER. Kate snapped them. She and her friend Katelynn Marshall were doing an assignment for their Grade 11 English course. They called it their “Macbeth photography project.” The girls had to take a picture for each Scene of the play. When I found the photos and asked her about it, Kate told me that the project had earned them a mark in the “high eighties range” and that the teacher “was a tough marker.”
These photos were taken in our backyard, in the woods behind the fenced-in area. I think Kate lent Daniel the shirt, making him look very old-fashioned.
Love the expression on his face as he looks back at the camera!!!!

FAST Layout!!!!

Hi everyone!
Had the pleasure of creating a fast, easy layout this weekend.
It was based loosely on a challenge at Sisterhood of Scrap (SOS).
Why not pop on over and see what challenges the SOS Team has in store for us in October? The link to SOS is HERE. You'll love the friendliness and caring you'll find there, never mind talent, challenges and fun!
See you there!

My newest layout:
Annual Fall Visit 2011
This LO shows my in-laws, Chris and Doug, with my sis-in-law Patricia and her kids, Sophie and Sam. :) My in-laws were visiting them, in Ontario,  as they do every year in the autumn.

Had fun with this one. The challenge asked us to use Washi tape. I don't have any, so I used Painter's Tape. When Pete brought it up to me, I couldn't believe my EYES: the 2 colours we had were exactly a match for Sam's hoodie! LOL... Pete laughed about it too!

Special thanks to my MIL, Chris, for the photos!

Hope you enjoy.


CS: CTMH "Pear"
Patterned Paper: CTMH "Footloose" collection
Ink: CTMH "Indian Corn Blue"
Painter’s tape: both were Scotch- 2 colours in different widths 
Chipboard Stars- old stash from Scenic Route. [~2007!!!]
Stickles- "Mermaid" (Ranger)
Font: captions- Arial
Font: title- DejaVu Sans 

Hope to see you again soon! Thanks for popping by- I would love to hear what you thought of this FAST layout!! :) Have a happy week!
