Mucking Around with the Kids

A couple of days ago, Luke came and asked if I could take some photos of him and I have to say, I jumped at the chance, because lately, he has been going through the ‘I don’t want my photo taken’ and ‘don’t take photos of me’.  So I grabbed the camera and took some photos.

Here are a couple that we came out with

And then when Chloe came home from school, it was her turn and Luke took this photo of the 2 of us

Not too bad a shot for little hands using a big camera!

I Finished an Assignment, So I scrapped

I was given some of the new Timeless paper from one of Kaisercrafts new May ranges by Nicole at Scrapbooks from the Heart, where I work.  I knew straight away which photos I wanted to put on this paper.  They are of my Grandfather when he was in the Navy, in the war.  The bottom photo was taken in 1942 and he is standing in a bomb crater. 

I started this page at work the other day but didn’t get to finish it.  I wouldn’t allow myself to do anything creative until I had finished an assignment as I have been putting them off and telling myself they were ‘too hard’.  But today while both kids were at school, I sat and did it.  No noise, no distractions, just me and the books. 

As soon as I had finished I grabbed this page and finished it while I still had the ideas in my head.  I have cut the anchor out on the Cricut from the ‘Pack Your Bags’ cartridge and then crackle painted it and finished it off with a bit of gold rub n buff. 

I loved putting this page together.  I have some things from the other 2 May ranges for Kaisercraft to play with, so let’s hope they go together as easily as this one.
