Another Challenge from AmyAmy has set another scrappy task over on her blog. This time she was inspired by an old copy of Simple Scrapbooks (this is an enigma to me as I am sure there is no such thing as 'simple' scrapbooking) and challenged her blog followers to take 5 photographs of things that wouldn't be there in 5 years time. I changed it about a bit and some of my photographs are of things that I think might have changed in 5 years time.
So I took the photos yesterday and then decided to make a layout inspired by the magazine cover. The only problem is that I definitely, under no circumstances do Simple Scrapbooking. I struggled with the the concept of less is more. I originally made the page with just the three buttons on the top left corner of the photograph, as in the layout on the magazine cover but this morning gave in and added two more clusters of buttons ;-). So there we have it yet another page inspired by Amy.
Reasons to be cheerful:
1. It's the half term holiday and as today is a non-pupil day I am off for the next 10 days.
2. Blogs that inspire me.
3. The prospect of going into town to purchase some awesome fabric to make a 'Glinda' dress (for the school production of The Wizard of Oz). I am soooooo excited about this one as the last dress making I did was Gracia's prom dress over 2 years ago.
