As mentioned in my previous post, this month Scrap Our Stash have teamed up with The Memory Nest, My Scraps and More, and Challenge YOUrself to bring us a host of challenges for 'ScraptoberFest'. All up, there are four challenges, one from each of the blogs, plus a bonus challenge. The bonus challenge is to create a layout incorporating all four challenge criteria. My month ended up being unexpectedly busier than I had anticipated and I was only able to get to three of the challenges.
Having already completed the My Scraps and More colour challenge, I decided to give The Memory Nest's sketch challenge a go.

I must confess that I fiddled with these photos and papers and embellishments and ideas forever. Or so it seemed. As a page for my mum's album, I wanted to encapsulate her memory of her first date with my dad in something of a time capsule, but was at quite a loss as to how to approach it. There was yet again a lot of journaling, as one might expect in a project of this nature, but I wanted an original way to present the journaling. Eventually I found it and I am sure my mum will be thrilled when she sees this page in her album.
I have another page to share from the ScraptoberFest so stay tuned. But in the meantime .. happy scrapping!
