Challenge #19

Here is this week's challenge, brought to you by Beverly Todd!

My turn to set the challenge this week. I hope you'll all play along. When I saw the stash from our sponsors, Cosmo Cricket, it was a li'l bit scary as this is technically a Christmas range so I put it back in the box for a day or two. When I came back to it, the ideas just kept flowing. Everything on this page is from Cosmo Cricket apart from the basics (ink, journaling pen etc) rub ons, beige acrylic paint & a little bit of chiffon ribbon that I used to gather the lace.

So the challenge is ... We often devote a lot of time to scrapbooking and journaling the momentous occasions: weddings, new babies, holidays and vacations but what about the everyday? Whether it's a typical day in your own life, your family's or your friends' why not take some time this week to scrap an average day, week or moment (I scrapbooked breakfast once!) As always, hook us up in the comments if you join in - I'd love to come & see what you've done!
My journaling takes the form of a little 'timetable':
9am - Leave for school - I like craft the best.
Noon - Lunch at Nanny's and then ...
1pm - Playtime! Sometimes I watch TV, read stories or play with my toys.
4pm - Home again. Daddy & me play a while before he goes to work. If it's sunny we play in the garden.
6pm - Have dinner with mummy then watch TV, read or play on the PC until bed at 7pm

Wow, Beverley! What an awesome challenge! And, I love the way you used a time line to show what goes on in an ordinary day. Busy!

The way you've used the Cosmo Cricket papers is just fabulous! It doesn't look Christmas-y at all! Love the layers, the scalloped border, the big chunky letters ... ohhh, it's ALL GOOD!
