NSD more Shimelle challenges

How I have loved scrapping this week... it was great to have a long weekend with the Bank Holiday then I only work a few hours on a Tuesday and Wednesday is my day off.....perfect!

I bravely tried the use mist and use paint challenges and attempted to go a bit arty on this page with more Olympic photos..........

to be honest I am not sure that it worked!  I don't think I like this page but at least I tried something different!

Next up I used a sketch from Sketchbook365 the Scrap 365 challenge blog (just got the latest issue delivered today so will be indulging in an inspiring read this weekend no doubt)

I adapted the sketch to use larger photographs and to record our experience of using games mobility at the Olympic Games and the journalling expresses my gratitude to the wonderful Games Makers and the games mobility team who really looked after us and were so helpful.

I have left out almost all of the swirly elements and the flower and butterfly embellishments (I have featured umbrellas instead!!) but I think you can still see the original sketch in mine and it fits Shimelle's challenge about recording gratitude.


  1. It's always good to go out of your comfort zone a bit :) I like both layouts though :)

  2. Wow, it is sooooo different to the one I did with the sketch isnt it! love the journalling straight on the page & the umbrella peeping through
