Scraplifting

I made a scrapbook layout just for myself yesterday.  Documenting something I wanted to remember, rather than creating with a challenge in mind.

The children were making card for SMO whilst he was out on the morning of Fathers Day.  They chose a large aperture card that needed a 5x7 photo and, as we didn't have a current one, we took one there and then still wearing their pyjamas. 
It's not the greatest of photos, just one shot and that was it, but I like the spur of the moment feel to it and decided to print it twice onto an A4 sheet, one for the card and one for me.
For the layout I have scraplifted the design from a page by Jill Cornell in issue 55 of Scrapbook Magazine.  I was drawn to the uncomplicated design and the journalling around the edge to frame the page.   What's more, I cut into my new 3 Bugs In A Rug, Lazy Summer stash to make it.  The only other things I have added are Papermania kraft card, Claudine Hellmuth gesso, Pebbles letters, Jilly Bean Soup bakers twine and a Crate Paper chipboard button.
That's another one for the album done, I must make time to do them more often.

It's business as usual here today, both of the older childrens' teachers are in school (2 out of the only 4 that are not striking).  So I packed them off as usual and I'm hoping to catch up with some blog hopping whilst Branston is playing.
