When I sit to do a LO I generally have gotten an idea from something I saw, a magazine advert, a scrapbooking book or something I saw on a blog. I have never entered or joined in a Challenge blog or card challenge blog even, not that I had any ideas pre-set ideas about them, just always had other things I wanted to do and probably was limited by time.
For a long time I have been keeping up with a blog by a girl called Nadia Cannizzo, and OMG her work is so amazing and I just drool over her LO's and the use of the flowers and layers. I probably have a little scrappers crush on her work! (and a little bit of envy of her talent - blush!). Anyway - She recently set up a challenge blog 'Once upon a Sketch' and I have looked for the last few weeks and never thought to do a LO, but the last few nights I had both the time and the interest to have a go at something just for me and played along.
This is the sketch that Nadia put up and after looking at it, I realised that I had 3 photos of my little one that I had taken during one of our painting sessions. I am a clever mom and I let them paint in their jammies and when they have painted 20 or more sheets of paper with cups and cups of paint, I bundle them up and plonk them in the bath, really there is not much more you can do and they just get the paint everywhere! Lea's sister had finished painting and gone off to clean herself up a little and Lea still painted and I took the opportunity to snap these natural photos of her and I love them. I had a package of papers on my desk, from My Minds Eye - Alphabet Soup and I decided to start cutting and see where I went with it.
Nite all! Michelle
