This is a LO I did for a new challenge blog I spotted the other day http://scrappersblockchallengeblog.blogspot.com/2009/04/challenge-1.html The challenge was to create a page without using PP which to me was the best kind of challenge as I rarely use patterned papers anyway, I still find it hard to pick that perfect paper to go with the photo but one day I'll get there. I used a blue and a pinky purple inkpad to dab on ink with cotton wool to create a mottled effect, it looks nice but doesn't really show up that well in the photo. The LO is based on a pagemaps sketch - Feb 08 Roundmap, I adapted it to go on a 12x12 square LO rather than the original round page. the photos are of Robyn as baby sucking away on her thumb (something she still does nearly 7 years on). The tag has the Thumbsuckers poem on
Oh the thumb-suckers thumb May look wrinkled and wet And withered and white as the snow But the taste of the thumb Is the sweetest taste yet (As only we thumb-suckers know)
I'm a single mum of 2 gorgeous little girls. they take up most of my time but I do sometimes have time to scrapbook or watch a movie. I love papercrafts and I'm always on the lookout for gorgeous things that can be made with pretty paper and card. I'm still a relative newbie to it all though so my work is in no way perfect. Have just discovered patchwork and quilting which is fast becoming an addiction. I love sewing and have recently discovered crocheting.
Also "mum" to 2 moggies and 2 bunnies
