I remember .. with Show Us Your Stuff

I'm on school holidays for three weeks and a couple of days ago realised, with horror, that I hadn't taken advantage of the time off to scrap!  :O  I know right? So yesterday I remedied it by whipping up this one in between loads of washing ..

I remember

I was inspired to create this layout by the current challenge at Show Us Your Stuff .. to use hand writing as a feature. LOL I'm not sure how much of a feature my hand writing is but it's definitely there! I don't know about you, but I go through phases of using my handwriting all the time to do my journaling and then at other times printing it. I do think my journaling looks neater printed but it certainly is quicker to hand write it.

You also need to use a handmade embellishment on your project. I've used a handmade trinket pin I received in a trinket pin swap years ago. That's one of the things I really miss about scrapbooking forums .. no more swaps. I used to get some fabulous stuff in swaps!

Anyways if you're not so fussed by your handwriting, why not give the Show Us Your Stuff challenge a go? You can find all the details for the current challenge HERE.

Meanwhile I'm off to do another layout whilst yet another load of washing spins away ..
