I love these awards the kids get at School. They are so bright and colourful. And the kids are pretty proud of them too. So its an absolute pleasure to scrap these for the kids to reflect back on later on in their lives (hopefully) :O)
I've been quietly scrapping away during this last week. Some of the LO's for me, some are tucked away for reveal on Scrap Therapy in July.
I love this one. The wheat was fussy cut from a Weetbix box.
I've been ploughing through my Grand Canyon Trip photos so I can get that 'Smash' album done and out of the way.
I've had a couple of photography projects on the boil that I can't hint too much more at ;O)
This weekend (Kinlough Cup) there is a Scrap Weekend up at Wudinna for the Wudinna gang. Marilyn and Mel have been busy bees in the background for it to come together.
There are a LOT of scrappers up there with very young family, that just can not get to the E2C retreats, so this is primarily their weekend. The Senior Citizens Room is small so there were only 20 spots to fill and most of them have a Wudinna lady's names on them. Shabby Chic Shack are taking the shop up for the retail therapy. There's a number of Lock ladies, myself and 3 from Lincoln going as well.
As of today there are a couple of seats that have become available. Starts as of 2pm Friday to 2pm Sunday. Beds in Wudinna homes are available. Tea at Pub on Friday night, catered lunches and Tea on Saturday night. If you're keen to come (there's no footy/netty for most of us this weekend) ring, msg email me and I can take your details to forward onto Mel or Marilyn.
I've been digging into my backlog of Grand Canyon images that need processing so I can get that done with, scrapped and move on.
And I had a very very exciting day yesterday. Along with Laura, we presented a range of images to the 'Adopt a Room' committee that's renovating the ward rooms at the Cummins Hospital. They asked us to showcase our local district with images to be hung as canvases in every room. It'll be a project that will take a while as the committee is moving forward room by room.
But both Laura and I are very very flattered to be involved and to be able to leave our mark in the process.
Really justifies what I'm doing behind the lens.
Having a bit of a play with monochromes........ the pp is off white and I spray a bit of Gold Glimmermist with the Crafter's Workshop Chicken Wire Template in two corners just to add a touch more mono to it.
To keep photo shoots fun, and so the kids will want to do it again in the future, we play games. All sorts of games. I didn't have any e's in this Navy set of Thickers :( so I had to improvise a new name for the game of 'peek-a-boo'
Mists are my 'colouring in' theme at Scrap Therapy for this month of June. While I was scrapping this LO last week, I had a thought of misting the kids hands and have them stamped on top of each other for a different way to utilise those mists in the stash.
I lined up the different ones I have and let the kids choose their own colours. Luckily for me, the ones chosen were complimentary.
