One day in June

I had a great day scrapping all day Saturday.
Embellish It had a crop day in Oamaru and this time I managed to get along. Special thanks to Camden who come to look after Andrew for the day.
Kathy from Duntroon come with me, we headed off bright and early (for a Saturday) at 9am and scrapped until 6pm...wow, one would think I would have got more done than I did, but I was pretty stocked to almost finish three pages, and I managed to accumulate a nice little stash of scrapping goodies as well.

This page is one I wanted to do for a challenge over at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge. I saw this challenge via Donna O'Learys blog and because I have not scrapped any of our wedding photos (except  for one digital page a few years ago) I thought it would be a fun challenge to take on, and something a little different. I should mention that I hate scrapping me !!

Anyway, here is my completed page. I added more to it on Monday and even more again today...yes, I'm an 'over doer' I know! 

The flower on the right is one I brought on Saturday. I also brought some Martha Stewart Paper Clay goodie's and I made the paper clay flower and the word 'April ' using it. The flower on the left is one I created from petals I found in my stash at home.

Yesterday I added this ring that dear Andrew welded for me many years ago. He did eventually buy me a real engagement ring, but this one holds special memories.

 Today I added this tiny Ingvild Bolme Frame, and another tiny photo, along with some roses and a bit more ribbon, held in place with brads. Now I'm happy with this page and will leave it alone.. I think! 

Thanks for looking, and if, like me, you have not scrapped any of your wedding photos then I dare you to give this challenge a go as well.

It was lovely to catch up on Saturday. I thought the page looked different to Saturday's version. Love all the little things you have added and so special to add the ring as memorabilia. You will love the little letters and moulds. Gorgeous layout of a special day.

Hi Sonya
Was lovely to meet you and Kathy on Saturday. Your work is gorgeous! I love your layout and all the wee pieces you have added.
I am pleased you enjoyed your day and hopefully maybe you can get to another one sometime.

Beautiful layout Sonya - loving your beautiful embellishments and the netting. The closeup frame photo is exceptionally beautiful! Such a shame that you are uncomfortable scrapping yourself - your family and friends will be so glad to see those glimpses of YOU!!! And it will be wonderful for you to see you and your thoughts years from now. Thanks so much for playing along with Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge and I hope we see more of YOU here!!

My Scrapping

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

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
