My Altered Flossys

Hi there

I saw an idea for altering Toms on the following website (Pearmama) and thought I would have a go.  Instead of using Toms though I used Flossys.

The 1st shows how I have done a rough design with a watercolour pencil.

In this second picture I have went over the design with a black fabric marker.
I am quite pleased with the finished effect, not bad for a 1st go.  I would like to do another pair but spend a little more time thinking out the design and drawing it.


Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog.

Scrap it with a Song - On the Road - Digital Layout

In the spirit of this "Back to School" season, Scrap it with a Song have a set of education-themed songs for this month's playlist, First up we have "Teach Your Children" by Crosby Stills Nash and Young. 



I love this photo of my son, he look so chilled and relaxed while we were taking a driving break on a trip.

I have created digital layouts before but this is the first time I have submitted for a design team challenge.  I used free scrapbook mega kit “The Wheels on the bus” from Scraps-N-Pieces
http://www.scraps-n-pieces.com/store/ 

I wanted to use busy papers but keep it simple so you focus on the photograph.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog.
