Funny Face

Wow, don't think I've ever been so glad for a week to be over (well, perhaps Ofsted week...). I have been totally knackered and feeling quite depressed and for no real reason. I think its just got to the point where I really need the Summer holidays to start. People who think that teachers have too many holidays should try working in a school like mine and realise what it does to your health and sanity!

But at least I've managed to complete a layout this week, not one of my favourites but it wasn't too much of a struggle and now I'm not thinking about entering every layout into a competition I find I've become much more relaxed and I'm just enjoying the creative process.

This layout is called (You've got a) Funny Face and is just another fun picture I found when looking through Mum and Dad's old photos which I thought would make a great scrapbook page. The papers are by Basic Grey Blush and Scenic Route Charlotte ranges. I used my trusty Autumn Leaves stamps, some chipboard letters by Basic Grey and Heidi Swapp and finally some eyelet charms (which I attached with pearl brads!).

The journalling at the bottom of the page (on the red paper) reads:

Having fun with face paints at Manor Park Primary School. I would probably have been about five or six when this was taken. I still remember most people's names!

Nothing earth changing but a fun layout which I enjoyed putting together. Now I'm off to eat my dinner and do some knitting...

  1. Hope you're feeling better Chloe. I've worked in your school and know what it does to your health and sanity. You have my sympathy.
