GYSO #3

This is my page based on the sketch over at Get Your Sketch On. I loved working with this one, and finally, finally made myself cut up and use my beloved Making Memories shaped ledger paper, which I had been hoarding for what seems like an eternity! I flipped the sketch to it's mirror image, as I had photos with Mark facing to the right, and then jumping to the left - I have a thing about people looking/doing stuff off the page, they have to be looking/doing into the middle... I added my journalling over the photos, as I am quite wordy when it comes to journalling, and I'd never have made it fit otherwise!

These photos I took last summer, at our village's harbour, when Mark had gone down with the kids to do some harbour jumping aka dookin'.

I swear sometimes he thinks he is a super hero... One of these days, he'll realise he's getting a bit old for all this carry on, but until then, he can be my hero anytime!

Journalling reads - You look like Mr Incredible, but sometimes you are more akin to Captain Chaos or major Disaster... You don't leap tall buildings, preferring to leap into the harbour at high tide... Figures...

The papers I used are Daisy D's and Making Memories. The cardstock is Bazzill. The alphabet stickers are American Crafts Thickers. I used a Martha Stewart border punch, and the stitched arrow was done with a PaperMania stitching template. The buttons are from my button box, and the trim is from my ribbon box...

I am amazed that I can actually use coloured cardstock as a base for a layout - it's been a while since I have used anything other than kraft or white!

I have a busy time ahead, with doctors and dentist appointments this week, and Tom has 2 parties next weekend so I have to make cards for those. Next weekend we have my brother in law coming for a flying visit. And I also have a pile of stuff on my desk right now, waiting to be done. I'm sure I'll fit it all in. Hang on, I have to go to work too, so maybe something will slip by the wayside...
