I've been waiting to scrap these photos for 2 years, so it's kind of exhilarating to finally get them out of my "to be scrapped" box. Using this sketch from "Get Picky":
meant my page came together fairly quickly. I grunged up the background paper with Walnut Stain and Tea Dye Distress Ink, and I really like how boyish it turned out. I changed the upper corner detail to a cute little banner, thinking that usually parades have banners galore. Of course, this one didn't. In fact, it didn't have much of anything! If I didn't have my camera at the ready, or if I blinked, I would've missed the whole thing! It was pretty funny, looking back, that we got all ready, got good seats for the parade, and it was over in 60 seconds, but the kids just loved the candy. I know, I'm the worst mother in the world, I only let my kids have candy at Hallowe'en and parades, but they're the strongest, healthiest kids around (with no cavities or fillings), so go figure! They'll thank me one day!
The girls at Candy Shoppe Designs are back, and one of their challenges this month is to make a "summer" project. Make sure if you join in, tell them I sent you, because it's all about the RAK, right? (Does anyone know what RAK stands for, by the way, or should I say, BTW? I just figured out what LMAO and ROFL stand for, I'm like an old lady with all this lingo!) I'm also entering this page at Sketches in Thyme for their open challenge, which means you can use any sketch. Did you hear me? ANY SKETCH!!! That means, link your stuff up now, chickadees, you could win!
