Sarah's Cards July Sketch Challenge.


After a 2 month break from all things scrap related I saw this sketch over on the Sarah's Cards blog. {http://sarahscardsltd.blogspot.com/} It inspired me to get back to my scrap table & unpack my things.

Inspired by the monthly progressive challenge over at scrapbook.com I knew this sketch was perfect. I have talked about the progressive challenge before, it is one of my favourites. A group of friends & I get together at the end of each month to play. It is a fast paced way to finish a page a little like a game of Simon Says.


These photos of my youngest son were taken at the Portsmouth Big Picnic on bank holiday monday. We had so much fun with so much to do & learn all about getting outside & enjoying the benefits of exercise & healthy eating. In these pictures Noa is attempting to hula hoop. The hoops & demonstrations were provided by HappyHula Monkeys.com hence the title of my page. Did you know you can burn 100 calories in 10mins with a hula hoop?! I didn't until I met these guys. I now have my very own HappyHulaMonkey Hoop to use at home which I love. It is so much fun & takes a little time to get the hang of but practise makes perfect.

I made this page using my June kit from Sarah'scardsltd.com I just love this line of papers & all of the co-ordinating embellishments. I have lots of photos to scrap & these papers are perfect. They can be used for both masculine & feminine pages too.
