SLYMI week 31 and Michelle's sketch challenge on SATC

Yep, one LO, 2 challenges. Shimelle's Scrap Like You Mean It on UKS this week is to scrap "something old, something new, something borrowed or something blue". She said to use one or all and we could ignore the wedding connection if we wanted.

So, after realising that the photo I had wasn't quite what I'd remembered, I decided to scrap a copy of a school photo of my nan aged 11.

old ~ photo
new ~ flock paper which I've inked to make it a darker shade of blue
borrowed ~ the original photo so I could scan it
blue ~ Lo is blue and white

Michelle's sketch challenge on Scrap Around The Clock for July-August was provided by Pagemaps and I've turned it for my LO.

The brackets and swirls were cut on my ROBO which is now working with the Vista on my laptop :) I also got ROBO to cut the title out of the blue paper to allow the white to show through.

Thanks for looking

Help from mum realising that it would have been a leaving junior school photo :) Will contact you about the photos as I have several here I've borrowed from Mum.
