Croptober #5

Well, after driving around for the first set of the volleyball game because my stupid phone had me in the wrong area, I missed the best set of the match - close, they lost by two points, and then totally fell apart during the second set to lose the match.  Oh, well.  We got to drive through our first hideous weather of the season - 40 mph wind, sideways rain, super fun stuff and then 20 minutes later blue skies.  Still had the wind though.

Today is cold, but sunny and field day for my 5th grader.  Tomorrow is supposed to be cold and rainy - just the kind of weather sports parents love.  NOT.  I'd like to think I could cozy up with some scrapbooking this weekend, but billing and shipping are on the horizon, so not gonna happen.

It will for you though, with today's challenge.  Today let's layer some relatively flat items.  Find an Apron Strings kit with ribbon and a pre-cut border (no kit, the round up items from your stash.)  You'll also want to trim some patterned paper to create another border - use a border punch if you'd like.  Layer at least three different elements (combo of ribbon, pre-cut border and trimmed pattern paper) to create a border around the outside of the page or around a focal-photo. Overlap the pieces for dimension.   All layouts from this week are due Saturday evening.  Don't forget the BONUS entries from this week, if you qualify.

Okay, it's time for me and the 3 y.o. to head out to pick tomatoes, jalapenos and some herbs to get roasted, frozen and processed before the freeze comes this weekend.

Happy Friday!
