As I was scrolling through a multitude of FB posts earlier (there really is such rubbish on there), I noticed a post about creating a layout using a timer.
Twenty minutes for the basics.
Then another twenty for the embellishments.
And finally, another twenty to tweak if necessary.
The Boy Child made a joke the other evening and I wanted to get the story down as soon as possible. I very rarely scrap without a photo, but as the camera wasn’t to hand, I had to do without one.
The whole page took around 30 minutes . The text paper came from a Studio Calico kit, the 6×4 journalling card came from Sn@p Pockets and everything else is by Becky Higgins (Kraft design).
Journalling reads: 22 January, 2014: supper time-ish.
“Mummy, can I write my name on this piece of paper?”
“Okay. Be careful with the pen.”
“Mummy, can I write some more?”
“No, not on that piece of paper; that’s my shopping list for tomorrow.”
“But my name is already on it.”
Slightly longer pause.
“Will you buy a The Boy Child at the shops tomorrow?”
Cue laughter from Mummy. x
Have you ever made a page without a photo?
Have you ever scrapped against the clock?
ETA: the challenge I saw on FB is over on the Jot magazine blog and is hosted by my good friend, Sian.
