Talking of things health I've booked an eye test for Thursday, so I will having some new glasses before I start my new job... or maybe 2 pairs. When Katie looked a bit shocked as I said I might have 2 pairs I explained to her that as I have to wear them all the time (being extremely short sighted) I might want to ring the changes over the next 2 years, so why shouldn't I have 2 pairs... I wouldn't wear the same clothes for 2 years. Today's page is one I made last night for this weeks UKS challenge, using a sketch, things beginning with B, distressing and a bit of journalling, so not too tricky really.
The papers are really old K and Co (heavily embossed) and Basic Grey, I used BG chipboard letters for the title along with the Tim Holtz alpha again, and added crackle accents over the top. I like the way this has made the letters curl up, adding an even more distressed look to them. The border at the top is Martha Stewart, punched into Core'dinations Whitewash cardstock, and I added eyelets (not used these for ages) to the loops. Stamps are by Stampin' Up for a change. I used a stamping wheel with a grid design behind the title to add a bit of pattern to the plain cardstock, thanks to Traciedoodles for the loan of this.
The photos are of Dad (Harry snr.) and son (Harry jnr.) on the beach last year... I do recall joining in with this game of cricket, and as I'm not bad at games that involve hitting a ball, whacking it to within an inch of our chalet neighbour's ear who was snoozing peacefully in a deckchair until a whistling noise woke her.... No photos of this I'm afraid!!!
