March's photo inspiration challenge over at S J Crafts got me scrapping with some photos that have been in my "to scrap" pile for a LONG time. No.1 Son had a wind-surfing course with his first ever girlfriend back in 2006, but as they broke up shortly afterwards it seemed inappropriate to be scrapping photos of her! I think his heart has recovered by now, especially as he's currently house-hunting with his current squeeze.
Crate Paper's Boys Rule collection were a great match for the sails and the banner & pennant stickers were perfect for a nautical theme. I love how the starry vellum tones down the stripes and adds extra interest.
Initially I cut the title letters (using QK Blossom dies) from one of the journalling cards that matched the stripy paper, but decided that using the coloured stripes themselves was more eye-catching against the white cardstock.
This month Annie is offering a prize for one lucky challenge joiner-inner - check the details here.
Keen readers will remember that I promised a prize for having a go with the S J Crafts' February sketch. The winner is announced over at S J Crafts here - along with a couple of favourite sketch interpretations.
