Scrapping and sad :(

Well today was very emotional but more on that later. First, look! I did a layout! My mojo has gone recently so I had a quick look on Stuck sketches where I found this.
Not a sketch I would usually go for but hey that's what a challenge is for right? :)
To challenge myself even further I pulled out these half used alphas I got in a recent swap. Not exactly in love with them so decided to try and turn them into something else.
Remembering the wooden buttons from my recent 'Like for ever' kit, I took the letter off and filled the gap with stickles. When dry it didn't look too bad :)
So this is my finished layout :) I put another one with red stickles down in the bottom right hand corner. Nice to use up things that would otherwise end up in Caitlins VAST craft/junk collection lol.
So as I said earlier it was a very emotional day. First was dropping a very excited Cameron off for his school trip to twicross zoo. Theres always that little bit of worry when they're away somewhere without me. Then this afternoon was Caitlins leavers play. :(
She played a mermaid who helped teach a pirate to swim. It was adorable and funny but then at the end they sang a song about the sun setting on this part of their life, and autumn leaves falling as they grow etc. Safe to say I cried.
Got a beautiful photo of her and two of her friends though.
Tomorrow we're off to Cams school to see his work so far. Roll on Summer holidays! :)

  2. Fabulous take on the sketch, love what you did with the buttons. Hope to see you back soon. Thank you for joining us at Stuck?! Sketches.

  3. Beautiful layout - love how you revamped the buttons. Lovely photo of Caitlin and her friends

  4. Aww lovely photo of the girls. Good idea for the buttons. There' are always letters you don't need. Maybe you could punch tiny circle of paper and cover with glossy accents if you have any more spares.

  5. Those milestones are always a big choker for me too and my goodness we've had a few this year! Love what you've done to those letters and a beautiful picture of Cairlin and her friends x
