Super-love this photo of my son Chris Pennington and his girlfriend Carley Hayward before her high school prom:
The layout was for a sketch challenge at Canadian Scrapbookier Magazine. I used: Prima Marketing Inc. Lyric Collection Pocata paper, Recollections Flower, various scraps and embellishments from my stash.
You still have some time to play along with Black with 2 – a fantastic challenge blog that will encourage you to work with predominantly black backgrounds, along with two other colours each month.
Their challenge for the month of May is as follows:
Meanwhile – the 15th of May challenge is up at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge –it’s our sketch challenge!!
And the 1st of May challenge is still on – our prompt is to scrap a baby photo of yourself and mention anything interesting about it, or your infancy. Go to the blog link to get some more ideas of how to interpret the prompt!!!
Here’s my take on the sketch. The photo is of the signing of the register at our wedding:
My son Chris Pennington and daughter Mary Pennington have always enjoyed music, whether they are playing it or listening to it. This layout shows them as children hanging out with their friends and putting together a little rock band to play for the day. What a bunch of cuties! These photos were taken in January 2004 – Chris and Mary are in high school now, but still rocking! Chris is now playing with a band with some high school friends. They are having a great time, and we love supporting them.
Here is my layout using photos of that fun day in 2004. The layout is based on the Sketchy Thursday sketch below that was put out by those fabulous scrappy ladies this weeek! Paper used was Rock on Love by Prima Marketing. Embellishments also from Prima and K & Company Rock Star.
