i'm stressed

but only because that is the challenge this week over at southerngirlschallenge. stressing is not my normal type of scrapbooking but a challenge is a challenge. Positive points about this layout is this photo must be one of the oldest in my photo tin and I had no idea of how to use it and now it is done. the stamp around the outside is one that I have never used before and the technique is one that I am not familiar with. so after all that I am pretty pleased with the outcome might try distressing again one day. Here is the layout

The next layout that I did, and I dont normally do two in a weekend was for the challenge over at sketchabilities this
and this is my take on it
the positives about ths layout apart from the fact is that it is the second for the weekend is that I used five photos which is a big challenge for me and took a small chunk out of the hundred or so that are in my box. Its quite hard for me to do christmas themed photos now the children are older so that was another positive. another challenge that I might do next weekend is me ten years ago which is pretty hard as I am normally the one behind the camera this may have to change.
Other happenings this week J. started her life in the workforce. H. still has a negative attitude. this week our roster has changed and so that means that I am not starting at eight anymore which means with a forty minute walk to work I dont have to leave the house at 7.20 instead I start at 8.30 and have to leave at 7.45 much better.


  1. I know what you meant about the huge pile of photos to get through! Only I don't worry so much now, and just scrap the pics I love or those with the story I want to tell, otherwise I would have to give up. Thanks so much for joining in at Sketchabilities.
