It's an overcast, looking-like-it's-going-to-rain day here in Edmonton - perfect for staying inside and scrapbooking but, not so great when you're trying to take a decent photo of what you've created and the light is horrible! Oh well.
I've played along with Shimelle's Sketch of the Week again and once more I'm scrapping animals - squirrels this time. I loved this week's sketch with its three tiny photos but wasn't sure I had anything similar in size until I went through my photo box and came across my squirrel photos.
I always enjoyed the abundant squirrel population of Quebec and that's one thing that's very different here in Alberta. Squirrels are minimal in number as far as I can see. I've only seen a couple and they were tiny creatures that seemed to be more a mix of squirrel and chipmunk rather than the larger animals we had back east.
Here's my finished layout:
All of the papers are from Crate Paper, mostly from their older Lemon Grass line. I basically followed Shimelle's sketch shown below, but ended up putting my journaling along the left side of the page because I had a lot to say about squirrels. I actually had more to say but had to do some editing because I didn't have room to write it all in. :-( I just couldn't resist using that little squirrel diecut even if it is a tad kitchy! When else would I get the chance? LOL
I'm so happy to finally have my squirrel photos scrapped. I really enjoy watching Shimelle's weekly video and her sketches have really inspired me to get back into my scrap room lately. I'm very grateful for that.
Until next time...
