A friend of mine let me know about a new challenge blog that she is a part of called Scrap Your Story.  I like to support my friends so I decided to check it out.  It looks like it will be a lot of fun.  The inaugural challenge is to create a page with only one photo.  Great. I've really been enjoying one photo pages lately.

I love this photo of my younger son so much that I printed it 5x7...about 4 years ago....and it's been sitting in a box ever since.  I know, I know.  He's asleep.  I have many photos of him asleep. I have scrapped many pages of him asleep.  But this one is at 3:00 in the afternoon on the second day of school. Kindergarten. All day Kindergarten.  He was sitting on the couch.  He got very quiet.  I went to check on him....I guess it was a long day for him....

I have a slight washi tape addiction right now, so I am trying to use it a lot...to justify having so much!  Actually, it's so versatile, I find it really easy to use.  I'm also enjoying mist and splattering.  A way of letting go of the control.  The rest is older and newer supplies mixed together.  Oh, and head over to ClubCk, specifically the Sketch It Out Challenge for this great sketch!

Well, good luck to Scrap Your Story!  I'll be looking at your next challenge!
