I've just managed to sneak in one more challenge, this time a sketch from "Scrap Friends":
I rotated the sketch 90 degrees to match my landscape photo.
The year before Maddy (my youngest) went to school was quite a social year for us; we had a number of friends (also Mum-and-last-child-at-home combinations) who we would regularly go out for coffee with. It became so common that Maddy would sometimes ask: "who are we going out for coffee with today?"

Product Challenge to Self:
I scored myself 4 points for this page! Here's how:
It's not often these days that I buy a product purely because I've seen it used somewhere else. But on the other hand, I like to stretch myself and try new things when the price is right. So when I bought these My Mind's Eye papers (there are three on this page) I decided that at $1.85, I could justify buying a set of matching label stickers. I added them to my product challenge because I wanted to use them before they got lost in the stash.
I've found using my fibres to be easier than expected, but the really . . . let's call them "hairy" fibres were yet to be touched, so that's what I decided to use on this page (mind you, the bits I tied to the tag between the photo and title I trimmed A LOT!
Attached to the fibres at the bottom is a little metal buckle, (which is also reminded me of the existence of the hinges, which then gave me the idea to hide the journaling . . . )
Finally, I used one of my mini misters to create the brown splatters (I used the drip off the end method rather than the misting method)
I've used 9 out of my 10 products that I challenged myself to use! I'm left with only my ribbon threading punch, and 9 days to go! Wish me luck!
