A few weeks ago saw the third Bloggers' Weekend, when I met up with some lovely fellow scrappers for a few days of cutting and sticking. Our first get-together was back in November 2011 and I told the story of meeting up near Ironbridge here. Our reunion (with a couple of new faces to make up for missing some of the original Telford Ten) happened in March 2013, and this year it fell to me to organise the third get-together.
Each time we've met, Ruth has challenged us to bring a set of "items" for everyone else to include in a project ... so this year there were 12 random objects to be added to a page ... can you spot a flair badge, some scraps of silk and cotton fabric, a plastic key-ring, a heart-shaped button and bead, a brad, a paper tag, some baker's twine, a wood veneer cat, heart and horse?
The page is based on the September 1st sketch from Stuck! Sketches which was perfect for including so many elements (though I moved the journalling and split my title) and ties in with the autumnal September House Challenge over on UKSCrappers. My bag of red paper scraps is a lot emptier now!
Not all of my objects matched my colour scheme, so I got inky and messy with the tag, the wooden heart and the cat. I chopped the heart-shaped bead in two and coloured it and the button with a black Sharpie. Meanwhile the orange cotton found its way inside the keyring fob and some silk helped cover up the brad.
