Scrapbooking: Meet My Mummy.

As many of you know, I love Halloween and have always helped my kids get dressed up ... of course that means I get to dress up as well without looking too much of a weirdo, ok, so it means I look less of a weirdo than usual ;)

I couldn't find any Egyptian scrapbook papers, or ones that showed a Mummy on it so I created my own..

Ripped white papers with the edges inked up, stuck onto black paper - I left a few gaps & glues on pairs of googly eyes in varying sizes. The photos are from Halloween night 13 years ago, a 2 year old Zack (almost 3) covered in bandages (sewn onto his clothes so he could put them on & off easily, even sewn onto a pair of pumps & hat) & plastic bugs.

The Journaling reads.....
With Zack in his Mummy costume, clothes with bandages sewn over them, plastic flies & snakes stuck all over, we returned from trick & treating in Duffryn, Hollinswood, the street I'd grown up in & knew the neighbours. Zack had a large bag full of treats & sweets

I'd like to enter this into the My Mums Craft Shop october challenge.

Scrapbooking: The greatest view....

...that is the challenge at Jot Magazine, to scrap our greatest view.

It didnt take me long to think of the photo I wanted to scrap, a photo that shows one of my greatest views & most certainly what Kai thinks we all what to see on a photo......

......himself. My lil photo bombing pain in the bum.

I  have started getting into hybrid scrapbook pages - the speech bubble, camera & journaling square are all printed off. It gives me a little more control over colour, style & direction of the item.

The journaling reads...
"Kai loves the camera & will photobomb as often as he can. At times its cute, other times its just plain annoying"

A special thank you to Ruths DD for taking this photo, & yes, that is me in the background :)
