Our son Chris Pennington’s 14th birthday – celebrated at his favourite place to celebrate – Presqu’ile Park in Brighton Ontario. We usually camped at the same time as his birthday , so Chris came to really enjoy celebrating the occasion there with family and friends. Here are some photos of he, his grandmother, friend David.
This layout was done for White With 1’s August challenge to use a mask and pastel colours along with the predominant colour of white.
Here is my first blog post since March. It’s been a whirlwind. I had a few challenges earlier in the year. Then I retired from my public service job, then took another position in my former field, decided to end my challenge blog Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge (that was such a hard decision to make, and I do regret it – although I just cannot make the time for it now.) And when I did have time to sit down at the computer, I’ve had computer problems.
For some time now I just have not had the time to pursue any of my creative outlets, including scrapbooking. Today is a great day – I have finally been able to find time and be able to create.
I found this new blog in a very roundabout way. I attend Lisa Furtney’s awesome event, Scrapfest twice a year in Kitchener and in Oshawa, and I always take a look at the teacher line-up to see who interests me. This year she announced that Agnieszka Bellaidea will be teaching in Oshawa in the fall. Following the link to Agnieszka’s blog, I found a blog posting where she announced the challenge this month at Scrap Around the World – Helen Tilbury’s new challenge blog.
Helen’s blog uses a mood board and sketch this month for the challenge. I was inspired by the two photos on the top line of the mood board – the colour, and the mood of the two photos led to the photo and the Webster’s Pages Country Estate paper that I chose and used. The paper reminded me of the sketch, and I have remained true to the main elements within it.
Anyway, here is the layout. I’m so happy to have been able to create a bit again. I hope you like it.
