Scrapbookers Anonymous September Challenge.......chipboard.

I'd like to thank everybody who took part in last month's challenges especially our new A to Z challenge,isn't it a fun ? Don't forget the new A-Z Challenge will be on the 15th so start thinking what you can use for your letter B.
Also Scrapbookers Anonymous is 1 year old today,this last year has gone so quick,I'd like to say a big thank you to Theresa and Lea for starting this fantastic challenge blog,I've certainly used up lots of my older stash !!!!! We are celebrating for the whole month of September with lots of mini challenges and extra prizes,we kick off the first one on the 5th with Lea, so check it out.
This month's main challenge is CHIPBOARD, use chipboard on your LO/card whether it's alpha's,flowers frames,whatever you have,here's your chance to use some of it up. Come on you know you want to.
I've used nearly a whole pack of G.C.D Melody Ross Urban Collection on this LO with little else,I've had them for about 2 years and they'd not even been open,shame on me !!!!


I wanted to do a LO just about Paige,she had her exam results last week and she was very upset and disappointed with her results,we weren't she got her 5 GCSE's she needed to get onto her course at college and she passed her maths and english which are the two important ones. She's never been confident with exams but now she can concentrate on her college work,she is doing Health & Social where she will do work experience once a week and course work,so no exams involved. We are very proud of her for the person she has turned out to be !!!!!
The glare is actually part of the photo,I know it's not technically the best photo in the world,it was taken on my phone with the Retro Camera but I love the way the sun is shining through the window directly onto Paige. I've used the chipboard to mimick the effect of the pictures on the wall in the photo and wrote quite a lot of journaling,which I rarely do.The chipboard alpha's are AC Thickers and I used the splodge stamp from SU French Foliage.
Don't forget to keep popping over to Scrapbookers Anonymous through the month to join in with this month's festivities.
Thanks for stopping by !!!!

How utterly wonderful to dedicate such a lovely page to your darling daughter Paige! Can imagine her being so upset, but it's more important to be a fine person, a fine degree is nice but this will not get you through life the right way ;-) Love your previous pictures, too, so funny you girls with the moustaches!!

This is fabulous and I love the photo ... I thought it was so clever of you to do this then I read and realised that the glare was not planned .. but I think it adds something brilliant to your already beautiful LO ... and Paige is a beauty!

Sarah said...

That is a stunning LO, and the journalling - get you - it's so thoughtful. Paige will be fabulous, whatever she does - you keep telling her that.

Lisa said...

Deb - this is lovely! And as for the journalling?!? Wow! I'm so proud of you (wink!) The layout is gorgeous and I love the photo you used and the words you have written to your sweet daughter!
