Monochrome challenge

I had it in my head to make a page about the closure of Woolies, as part of my Book of Me, so when Shimelles challenge was to do a monochrome LO, it struck me that a photo where only the shop sign was red, and all the rest was B&W might suit this well.

As i was thinking of the current financial problems the country is having, i also chose to use recycled stash in the main (white card from inside the page protectors of a scrapbook, stamps, wrapping paper etc) in fact the only 'new' stuff is a piece of Black cardstock ( and i gutted that to re-use it later) and a few Thickers.I managed to cut the white card to shape by using a piece of expensive die cut paper that i haven't had the heart to chop into yet as a template, and after inking and doodling on this i was quite pleased with the results of my efforts!

I have an idea for a page for later, i had to take Harry to the shoe shop on Friday after school as his shoes had holes in, it turns out he has gone up a whole size in less than 6 months, and is now a 5 1/2 (the same size as Hannah!!!) As he is only 10, i'm slightly concerned about how big his feet will get by the time he finishes growing! So i might take some photos of his new shoes before he wrecks tham too. At £70 for a pair of shoes and a pair of trainers, i get the feeling i can't afford that boy!!!

steven was in shoe size 12 before he was 13, so look on the bright side lol,
