King of the play ground

Happy Saturday! We are having a cloudy and rainy day here (just like the last month or so…) But I’m not complaining. It’s a perfect day for what I will be doing – cleaning the house and scrapbook.

I started with making a layout this morning with a photo from spring 2008. Dear son is playing off, calling himself “king of the play ground” and constantly yelling “Mom, check me out!!! Jag ÄGER” (the last part not possible to translate really, a direct translation is I own (meaning I am the best, sort of).

han äger I used some of my favorite stuff on this one – stamps from Prickley Pear (stains and crown) and Magnolia (banner), patterned paper from GCD studios, my last cardboard chippie from Inkido, and I used my oh so loooved Double Loops Edge punch from MS. No flowers and no lace. I don’t know what happened…

I’ve had several questions lately about my edge punch, and it’s not a new one, only a slightly modified Double Loops. I simply cut off the outer loop. and there you have a single loop.

Edgepunch

I used this fabbie sketch #118 from Creative Scrappers:

I also made this page for Amy’s Flashback 2.0 challenge. That devious woman is challenging her readers to make a new layout AND post it together with ones FIRST ever scrapbook page. Scheeez. Well, I can do that. I’m not sure this is the first, cause I did two at the same time working on them for several weeks… But this layout is the first page in my first album, so this one it is.

Flisan Well, what can I say… I had been shopping some papers in December 2006  (Basic Grey and Chatterbox) but I could not cut them… I was patting them for a month or so and decided early in 2007 to get to business. Still couldn’t cut in them… so I used some cardstock, paint and lace instead… I got the flower pattern from an IKEA box, and look at the lace!!! I loved lace right from the beginning. And black cardstock.  Look at my westie!!!! She was the cutest EVER!!!!

I’m off for some house cleaning. When it’s done, I’ll have the afternoon free for scrapbooking! YAY! Hope you have a super Saturday!!! Thanks for stopping by!!!

Great take on that sketch and lovely dp.
I'm so happy to see that you've had some time to scrap and even more - you'll have some more time for it later! Something to wait for.

Loving your page with the sketch (thanks for joining in at Creative Scrappers) - the bold use of colour and embellishments is perfect.
