We're so nearly ready to go on holiday here that it's getting more and more difficult to remember exam time. Funny how that happens, because when you're right in the middle of it..you really are right in the middle of it. All a Mum can do is provide snacks and cheery smiles and ramble endlessly about getting fresh air and early nights. Through May and June, on Sunday evenings as Monday mornings grew closer, we got into the habit of piling into the car and going for a distracting drive. You know, out for a bit and home in time for Fargo?
One night we discovered an icecream shop still open late in the evening; another, we came across a little knot of houses wrapped round a river we didn't know was there; and once, we took photos of cows, because it seemed like fun at the time
So, I made a page. Round about the same time Get It Scrapped asked me for a layout which "pushed my pattern story", made me think about the patterns I turned to most often. That would be neat polka dots, then, and little florals; and so, instead of using one as a background, I chose to chop my patterns up and spread them across my page
Another job for the Slice. And for the veneer animals. I'll be sorry when I've finished the packet, though they do seem to last and last. Patterns, then: what's your story? You can find more ideas over at Get It Scrapped's article How To Push Your Scrapbook Page Pattern Story
