Derwent Challenge

Good morning, and Happy Monday :) Hope you had a wonderful weekend and your Monday has started off well :) This week over at Through the Purple Haze Challenges, the theme is Pencil colored or drawn image. We are sponsored by Derwent

Unfortunately for the past week, my two little ladies, husband and I have been terribly sick. While I was 'resting', my mind was going overboard thinking about scrapbooking and updating my photo albums and scrapbooks. So for this challenge, I decided to create some journal cards -

These are two cards, that started out blank. I stamped on the left 'you are my' and wrote sunshine. With some pencils (my supplies were very primitive this week - I had to raid the children's colouring stash to fulfill the theme!!! ;)

 I was using chubby colouring pencils, so delicate colouring/drawing was limited!!) I then used some washi tape and a wooden heart for some dimension. 

The second journal card, on the right, I stamped twice on top 'noteworthy' and then put a jewel in between. This was a quote from my eldest girl after her baby sister was born!
Here are some photos of the whole display, including another journal card I drew.

Here is the layout with journal cards and photos. (excuse the glare on the top left pocket. Our days are so dark lately, that photography is proving a little difficult!! ;)  ) 

 I got a helping hand for putting everything back into the folder! ;)

Of course, despite having a room full of toys, anything I am doing is ALWAYS way more exciting!!!! ;)

My eldest having thoroughly enjoyed looking back at all the photos, is now "helping" to display the page for photographing!!!

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoyed my journal page, and why not head over to join in the challenge?

I hope to enter a few challenges.

Have a great Monday,
Eithne :)
