Uk Scrappers weekly challenge Sept wk 1

Here is the layout I have done for this week's challenge on UK Scrappers.

The challenge was to a) use the sketch provided b) use only 2 colours, not including black and white and c) use a school related embellishment.

Here is my interpretation

I couldn't resist adding a little bit of misting and some bling :) 

The stars are yellow and green alcohol inks on glossy card

and the journalling tag reads

My school related embellishment is the stars because I used to love it when I got a 'star' on my work. 

Having completed the challenge I then 'me'd' the page up a little bit (it's a tad too bare for my liking, although I do like the overall effect). I just added a few 'gold' stars!! I wasn't sure these came within the remit (gold being a third colour) so I left them off till after the challenge.
This picture was on my fridge door for a number of years  :)

With 3 county players on the Perran team the other side didn't really stand a chance!
What was so nice for me though was having both boys playing together for a change - James usually played for Newquay Hornets but on this day did not have a game.
On another occasion, Perran v. Helston, they had to move James across to the other side in an attempt to even up the score a bit - he had already stopped taking the ball because it was getting embarrassing!!


  1. What a lovely blog post, I do love to find out more about the story of a layout :)

  2. A lovely story. Do the boys still play over in America or isn't there such a thing as rugby out there?
