UKS Simple Recipes

I have looked at the Simple Recipes challenge but never been that tempted to join in until this month. ATDML set the challenge with bright colours, red, yellow blue and green, a sketch, cutting out elements, hidden journalling and buttons.  I managed everything except the buttons!

My photos all look awful at the moment! I used 2 pics of DS taken 2 years apart at the same sweet shop in Battle, Sussex. I don't tend to use bright colours but the shop is painted red and the story suited all the colours.  It makes me smile just to look at this page and it really does capture his joy at buying the sweets and brings back all the memories.

Again I was happy to use lots of stash and will probably use this sketch again.  If you get a chance pop over to UKS to see the example page created from the sketch as it is amazing!


  1. I love the Simple Recipes idea and you have made it work perfectly for you. It looks brilliant!

  2. Lovely page...and my pics son't look very great these days either!

  3. Nice one Ruth - glad to see you are scrapping so prolifically. Love your take on the SR.

  4. I love the little "sweeties" and the "jar of sweets" - very cute! I also love your DS' expression on the bottom photo.
    Great page Ruth!
    And thank you for visiting my blog and - as always - leaving me a nice and friendly comment! :-) X
