Shimelles weekly LO challenge

I've taken part in Shimelle's weekly sketch challenge again this week, even if it is a little last minute.  It's amazing what papers you can find in the box when you rummage long enough.  I'm not sure what it's called but it's double sided and not too dusty!!

I wish blogging had been around when Samuel was little as now it's really difficult to get a photo of him.  As soon as he sees the camera he's off like a shot.  This LO is the before and after (if you like) of his dislike of the camera.  The left photo was Easter 2010 (aged just 13) when he would happily pose and the right photo is Easter 2011 (aged 14 going on 40!!) when I had to sneak out of a bird hide to get this shot!!
I cut up the bit of paper that had both 13 and 14 on it and used some acetate from a sticker book (I got at a Scrapagogo class) to make stars using the Creative Memories star cutter I got as a present from my sister.  I inked all the edges in dark brown chalk inks and fastened them on with some brads.

The star is made from a left over piece of paper which just happened to have these "Reserved" stamps on it already. Oh and I turned the LO on it's side as my photos were portrait.

Two layouts in just over a week.  This could a record for me :)


  1. Excellent! Those acetate stars look really good like that. And bless DN, just look at the change in him!
