Be in to win at Up2scrap

Check this out......

Its the very cool prize up for grabs this month at the Up2scrap Blog.


I got to choose the subject for the blogs challenge and have made it very simple for you !! I love Dr Seuss quotes, and have many favorites so have decided to base my challenge on that.

Check HERE for details


Here is my sketch, which is the first ever sketch I have drawn up using photo shop, it took me some time to work it all out, in fact it took me longer to do the sketch than my actual page!


I have had these photos of our dear son engrossed in 'Lester and Clyde' for a couple of years now. I snapped these when the rest of our family were cleaning out the shed. Cody found this book, an old favorite from his younger day amongst the many treasure hidden away in the many boxes that still adorn our shed walls. He was so 'into' the story, chuckling away to himself that he didn't even notice me taking these photos.

These photos always make me smile and so does the Dr Seuss quote I have used on my page...
The more that you read
the more things you will know
The more that you learn
the more places you'll go.
I must add that Cody took his time reading this book, that could be because he was not that 'into' helping clean out the shed??!!
Here is another quote I love from Dr Seuss, and funnily enough I have used another photo of Cody to go with the words. ... you can find it HERE

Hope you can join in with the challenge and that your page puts a smile on your face.
I had a lovely day today in the company of my dear friend Robyn.
and as Dr Seuss would say...
Today was good, today was fun, tomorrow is another one.

hehehee love that creating the sketch took longer to do than the actual LO! ;-) Looks good though and I like your LO. I don't think I have used a Dr Seuss quote in my scrapping before! Should go do a google search shouldn't I! :-)

Here is my finished latest painting
This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think
