S-J - over at Little Musings blog has started a new challenge where you look at your old los, and take something from them to inspire a new layout. Boy did I need something to inspire me, having wandered around all last week with no ideas at all.
This is the layout I chose for inspiration and the one thing was the column of patterned paper circles - all from different ranges - I love mixing ranges. With the current 'thing' for hexagons, I decided to create a column of hexagons instead - from my Counterfeit Challenge Kit for October, and came up with this...
I honestly didn't expect to use up that yellow paper, until I found the photo while sorting through a pile of others - it must have got misplaced, but what serendipity as it is such a cute photo of my youngest son and made me want to scrap it straight away.
Having the opportunity to scrap as it was crop week - and a lovely day we had too, despite missing a couple of friends who had sadly suffered bereavements and another who is celebrating her birthday way out West, and a few with more mundane reasons. I did manage three LOs - which is feeble but better than nothing. One of the others is here (the third has photos of someone else's children, so I'm not loading it):
Again, some serendipity involved as I found these scraps when I opened my plastic box to take my kit to crop, not only did they match my kit, but they fell like that which gave me the idea for the LO. A discarded set of stickers from a crop friend further inspired me to add them to the LO which is of my great great uncle, about whom I know nothing beyond the photo and dates of birth and death. It is strange to have these photos but not any of the background of what anyone was like - another reason why I scrapbook maybe?
