Alex really enjoys his scouting and he spent some time at Thriftwood doing a Pioneer course....learning different knots and then to build a bridge - and be able to walk on it! using the knots that they had learned!!
It is surprising what a few knots will let you do!!! Reef knot is about my limit....but if you need a bridge built Alex is your man!!! I got Alex to tie some knots for me......knowing it would be a good scrapping opportunity!! He is actually standing on the bridge that he helped build!!
I knew it would be a good scrapping layout and the challenge at Archi-Scraps is.....KNOTS!!!!
Don't you just love this knotty picture!!! How clever were the bricklayers!!!
The challenge closes at the end of the month so lots of time to get tied in knots!!
Layout of Alex and his then girlfriend Rebecca when they were celebrating 60year anniversary of Blenheim School. Each class has a different topic and their class did a Disney medley and Alex and Rebecca were Bert and Mary from Mary Poppins!!
I am joining the challenge at Creative Embellishments who always have a photo for inspiration + this month the twist was black and white.
I have some tiny butterflies in one of the backing papers and have used some flowers!!
The challenge closes at the end of the month so lots of time to join in!!
Alex is 13 and 6' tall.....just had to scrap it when we found a height chart!!
This is for the challenge at Creative Embellishments - to be inspired by one of the elements in the picture and to use a stamp on your background!
I did do lots of stamping....but then covered up lots with papers!! Originally I was going to go with the numbers and perhaps do a school layout.......but then I remembered that I had 'A' stamps so really suitable for 'A'lex and then I used orange and blues!! The large 'A' is actually stamped under the paper....so stamped it again and cut it out!!
The challenge closes at the end of the month so lots of time to scrap!!
