We 3 rock .. with Show Us Your Stuff

So I'm still trying to find my scrapping mojo. I tried scrapping this photo yesterday when my buddies Cindy and Ros were over. You would think that with those two 'creatives' in the room my mojo would be flowing. Nope. It was excruciating. Seriously. LOL.

I was still determined to scrap this photo today though, if it killed me. Well .. you know what I mean! So I did. I had a few ideas come to me whilst I was sleeping and voila ..

We 3 rock

I was inspired by the sketch at Show Us Your Stuff this month. I've used stitching on the sides of my layout to represent the layers on the sketch, and photo corners as triangles. Plus a lot of mixed media. I'm so glad some of the techniques I've used came to me in my sleep and, that I was able to remember them!

a few close ups of my layout ..

I'm stoked with how this layout came together. I feel like I'm starting to remember how to scrap 'my way' again. 'Tis a good feeling and, I hope, bodes well for the future LOL! Although in about ten days I'll be hitting the books again. What's the bet my mojo comes back in bucketloads when I'm supposed to be studying! Murphy's Law!!!

Anyways, if you love the Show Us Your Stuff sketch as much as I did, you can find this month's challenge over HERE.

Happy scrapping!
