OUAS July Challenge And A Layout

Hi folks!

I can't believe we're writing July 1th today. I have no idea where the last three months have gone, and there isn't much that reminds me of summer in my part of Norway - it's still chilly. I have one week left to work before I take a six week break - I'm just soooo looking forward to it. We'll hang a lot around home, but head for Greece in August - I needed to make sure we'll at least have some sun this summer.

July 1th means the July challenge is up at Once Upon A Sketch. This month's theme is


We would like you to create a layout and interpret the theme "Friend" however you like based on the following sketch. You can journal as little or as much as you like, but your layout must incorporate this theme and the sketch below. Please make sure that we see some sort of journalling on your layouts and please tell us where your journalling is . Hidden journalling is perfectly fine.

Ideas for journalling: one of your current friends, a childhood friend, an unexpected friendship,what having friends mean for you, a friend that you miss or have lost, family member who is your closest friend, a scrappy/online friend, a special person that has touched your life, someone who has helped you out lately, a friend that you couldn't do without, your children's friends / classmates etc., your pet and the friendship you have with it..

and here is the sketch provided.

My take on the sketch is going up on the 15th, so you have to wait a few weeks to find out what I made (but I promise, I had lots of fun doing this challenge). But you are welcome, off course, to visit the OUAS blog to see some of my fellow DTers jaw dropping work, to read about our sponsors, and learn how to play along with us :-)


Meanwhile I want to show you another layout made with MyScrapbooknook June Kit.
In the middle of May, DS9 and I took a trip to a glass blowers cabin, where the kid got a chance to make his own glass. In fact, he thought it was so fun that he returned to the hut later th same day to blow a second one. If you want a close up shot off the glass he made, you find it here.

Patterned papers: Simple Stories. Corrugated shapes: Jillibean Soup

I had seen a glass blower at work, so it was very interesting to see how they did it.
Have you ever visited one?
