Scrap the Boys - July challenge

This is my entry for the July Challenge for Scrap the Boys challenge site. I LOVE this site because the LO's you have to submit must be centred around BOY LO's. This well and truly suits me being the mum to 3 boys! This months theme was "school". I have scrapped Jack's recent Grade 1 photo. Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by.
Here is a close up of the flag. I love twine at the moment and used a wooden skewer and wrapped twine around it for this effect.

Once Upon A Sketch entry

I really like entering sketch challenges and am a BIG fan of the wonderful Once Upon a Sketch site. This months challenge was to create your LO based on the sketch below and incorporate the word "FRIEND". Below is my take on the sketch. It is a photo of my 2 closest friends. We have been through secondary school together and lots of other stuff like weddings, babies and lots of fun. Thanks for looking.

the sketch

My take on it.
Here is a couple of close ups. The flowers I used were a mixture of Kaiser, Prima and American Crafts. I created a doily look around my circle by using my Martha Stewart punch and cutting the lace effect and layering it around the circle.

Thanks for looking. Nelle -xxx-

Hi and welcome to my very first post on my blog! You will have to bear with me as I learn how to use all the bits and pieces within a blog. I am hoping to showcase my work here as well as get to know some on line scrapping friends. Thanks for checking in.
