Some scrapping and a story too.

Here is a bit of what I have done over the past few days.
Is a challenge blog I stumbled on a while back and thought I would play along with the latest challenge to alter your papers. I did both of these while at a crop at my local so don't have a photo of the paper before I started playing.
On the first onewhich is another page for my friend's sisters memory album, I punched out circles from the double sided Prima paper and layered them back onto the plain side. To make the scallops I first punched out the circle then punched the scallop around the circle and added them around the punched holes in the paper. I then randomly stamped over the whole peice with my fav Purple onion script stamp and gave it all a swipe or two with my ink pad.
This is a page in my 52 week album and the first one I played with. I used my circle punches punching out of some old book paper and layered them over my Pink Paislee paper. My friend had some circle stamps with her that fitted around the punched circles and I also used my My minds eye memories journal block. It is not very clear in the photo but I also played around with some charcol pencils which Lucy did on one of her samples and highlighted the punched circles.

Card positioning systems

I did this one up for the latest skecth but I realsied when I went to grab the link I missed the deadline. Oh well. I brought myself a sponging block yesterday and played around with it and my distress inks Love how it tunred out even if I did go a bit over board with the ink on my first try.
I used some my minds eye papers along withsome more of my Purple onion stamps.


And now for the story.

Yesterday Jane,Missy and I went up to Galeria shopping center to watch Christines daughter Sammi strut her stuff in a modeling competition. After that we grabbeda bite to eat and seeing as Missy had some money burning a hole in her purse we headed over to Kmart and she was lucky enough to be able to get a Little pet shop tamigoti toy with the money she had and she was happy. Been wanting one for ages. We get home from the shops, I open it up for her and went and had a nana nap as I had a headache only to be woken up 30 mins later to a lot of banging and dh yelling. Missy had put her toy, chain and all around the cats neck. After cathing the cat, a talking to and degangling the toy, which was confiscated she started screaming. Dh and I left her too it in her bedroom. After about 20 mins she was still going but I managed to calm her down enough to get her in the bath only to have it all flare up again when she wouldn't get out of the bath and I pulled the plug with her still in it. She ran of into her bedroom slamming hte door. 10 mins later I went in to check on her only to find her wrapped in her towel still wet laying on her bed. Fumming I went to her drawer and pulled out some pj's that she absoluetly hates and made her wear them and it started again. Durring dinner she had calmed down a little but both dh and I got the "I don't want to be a part of this family any more" talking to along with "I don't like my life and I want a new one" and "I want a remote control soI can turn back time". Once Missy get upset every thing thing can set her of again and dh made the comment that he would like the remote control thing to as he knew the lotto numbers and we could win lotto and i added we could by a new house and you can go to a new school. Well guess who didn't want a new house or school. So it started again. After all that there was no way she was going to be allowed to watch the movie she wanted to so she was banished to her bedroom to read till she fell asleep.
Boy when Missy losses it she losses it big time.

Til next time, Tomorrow with my STM page thanks for popping in, any comments and happy scrapping.

I love your 'all of us' layout, the "re invention" of the paper looks fantastic!!
Sorry to hear about Missy A. I'm sure it's something in the weather at the moment as mine is doing the same.
I hope she has had a better day today. And you!!
