There really is nothing new under the sun, and with so many brilliant examples about it is so hard to not want to scraplift some of the great stuff about.
This is another scraplift attempt, of a layout by Lisa Bond, found in Scrapbook Inspirations mag issue 42 to meet the sketch challenge for July. Anyway this one was done really quickly but I do like it heaps. Not being able to print out new photos on Dilbert, I found a wad of printed photos that had already been through photoshop and decided to scrap some of them.
NB 'tis the scan that is crooked, not my LO!
French Twist pp
KI Memories Felt Fusions Free stickers off a mag (cant recall which one)
Button from scrap
White sukara pen
Ellison Thin cuts Curlie girl font
Die cut flower
No hidden techniques really, just cut all the bits to size and stuck them on. The only bit of 'altering' I had to do was paint some of the felt orange to make it match the pp.
The photo is of Martin (my DH) stood by the pool of a villa we hired in Menorca in 1996. Not a holiday we really want to remember much about really. We went with my best mate and her family - she had fallen off her horse a few weeks prior to us leaving and only had the plaster over her broken elbow removed three days before we flew out.
Then the villa, although lovelyish had a pool with no shallow end (and my mate's DH doesnt swim, just likes to stand in the pool with us) plus the villa was on a main road that was described as being quite but which had motor bikes screaming past it at all hours of the day and night.
Topped by Kelly ending up in hospital because she developed glandular fever, and there was even some doubt about her being allowed to fly home.
Still as this LO prooves, even the bad times are worth scrapping!
