Another Challenge

I received a lovely comment from Anne Pennington from over at another freaking scrappy challenge and was curious to see what it was all about. I found a fantastic blog encouraging you to scrap about yourself. I find this divine as i rarely scrap myself i am always scrapping my little darlings. I decided to do the 1st of March challenge which was to scrap a memory of spring break or another break. I found this easy as we were always going away for the school holidays because being an Army brat we were always moving and lived away from our families. I chose to scrap when we went and visited nana. My Nana is truly a wonderful unique Nana still intact with her glorious Scottish accent. I tried to keep to the colours of the photo and bring out a Nana feel So here is what i created,hope you enjoy!

This is what i started with, using up all those journaling blocks i have

Billy-Jean - this is a gorgeous layout. The layering from the torn paper is awesome and adds so much interest and depth to the layout! I love it. Thanks for playing along, and I hope we see more of your work on another Freaking scrappy challenge ...

And, by the way, I can relate to your story. I was an Air Force brat, and all that I wanted in my life was to live near one of my lovely grandmothers. I got my wish my last year living at home!!!

Wow Billie Jean, love what you have done with the journalling blocks, may have to borrow that idea, never seem to use them otherwise. Nanas and christmas holidays go hand in hand don't they?

Can't wait to see what else you come up with, thnaks for playing with us at AFSC. xx
