if you build it, they will come

look at that - i've been able to FIND the time to scrap. it always feels so good to create!

i've decided to add journalling after i've photographed the layouts from now on.

this one's for inspired blueprints - a blog/forum i just found. miss 19 took these photos on her last day of college (high school) in november 2007. she's definitely the daughter of a scrapbooker, as i would have taken the exact same photos!

the cups on the floor are the 7th form prank. they filled each one with water and food colouring then locked the doors to the canteen so no-one could get in. oh, and they wrote something not very nice (on the far wall) about the manner and demeanour of the canteen ladies! (kids!!!)
this one is of miss 10 and her cousin taken a couple of weeks ago during our christmas with them. they have a substantial dress-up collection! this was for scrapping koukla who runs a sketch challenge on her blog.
some of you will recognise this famous letterbox! this layout was based on a sketch, but i can't for the life of me remember from where! (i threw away my copy, so i guess i won't be submitting it!)
popsicles are a brand of iceblock - another kiwi icon. miss 17 and some school friends (in their role as members of the school council) were hired to hand out iceblocks dressed AS iceblocks at wellington zoo. these photos were taken back in march - on the day hubs and i left for hong kong!
there's that letterbox again! as i scrap, i will enjoy the memories these pictures envoke. i can't believe that trip was 3 months ago already!

I see you found sometime to scrap thats awesome. Like your word and good luck with those job applications.

I like what you said about your one word. What I like about the one word is how people interpret it into thier lives.
