Scrap Around the World

There's a new challenge blog called Scrap Around The World :-)  You can check it out here.

This month's challenge is the sketch below and the moodboard.  See here for this month's challenge details.

I stuck pretty much to the sketch, except I used an oval instead of a circle, and although I love teal, it's not my "go-to" colour ... brown is hehee  So my eyes were automatically drawn to the bottom right picture on the moodboard.  I decided it was rustic look and pulled out a pad of Tim Holtz's papers and went from there.  Actually, apart from the tissue tape, oval shape, linen thread and photos, everything else is from Tim (papers, inks, cogs, clocks, spinners and the Sizzix dies as well).

Aaron at 4 years old :-)  Yep ... still working my way through that mighty pile of photos from our 2009 holiday!  (nearly there!)

It took me 3 days of 5-10 minutes here and there to finish this LO!  Help me, I haven't scrapped in so long I am rusty!!  

Love the sketch for this challenge.  Might even use it again :-)  Is anyone else out there reading my blog that's playing along?

Thanks for visiting.
