Oh my gosh, just where is the time going? I can see the end of September on the horizon already. And as for this working lark, I'm not sure I like it. I just haven't had any time to myself recently to play with paper.
Anyway.....after waiting for a new printer to be installed I was able to print a few photos and finish a couple of layouts.
Our new printer gives the facility of writing on the photos so I typed PASSED repeatedly along one side of the photo. I thought this was a great idea for us scrapbookers. Apologies to those who are already in the know, I'm a bit behind the times you know as I have been on a stash and technology diet.
Actually it's been great using up a lot of my scraps. I'm determined to use up a lot of those older papers that maybe aren't in fashion any more. Whenever I get new clothes, I take off the labels and save them along with any other interesting bits and bobs I find from magazines etc. The 'Happy Virus' label was attached to a bag I bought from Artbox once. The 'Joy' bottle picture was from a 50's inspired advertising calender and one I also added a couple of my home made buttons.
Yes, it was a joyous day in the 'The Little Blue Shed' household when Rob finally passed his Maths GCSE. As you can see from the photo he does look rather pleased.
Btw, Robs hair has got to Yeti proportions now and I have demanded he gets it cut before he starts some work experience....I'm taking him to the hairdressers myself. Oh, yes, of course I will have my camera ready though I'm not sure I can (or the hairdresser can) convince him to have more than a trim.
I'll be back with more thrifty layouts soon...and maybe a less shaggy haired son?
