Thomas and Friends

This is another challenge from our Facebook group for National Scrapbooking Day; our second one was set by Jennifer Grace and she gave us a sketch with a mixture of photo orientations.

I deliberately try to avoid this clash of orientations when I'm taking photos, and I had to go back to 1999 to find a pair that would fit the sketch. They're from a 'Thomas the Tank Engine' day at the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway. We took my son and my nephew there when they were toddlers. Unfortunately the two photos that I do have are of the engines, not the boys.

While I have been concentrating on the Facebook NSD challenges, I have borne others in mind while I worked, and I've managed to incorporate the criteria for Stash Challenge #26 at Scrap Our Stash. This month we need to create a page with stash items for each letter of the word EMBOSS. My items are: Enamel dots, paper from My Mind's Eye (yellow stripes), Blue background, Orange (punched circle), Stitching and the word Smile.

Paper - My Mind's Eye Lost & Found 3, MME Now & Then, Chickaniddy Crafts Scrumptious, plus Scraps
Enamel Dots - Teresa Collins, Doodlebug
Thread - DMC
Ink - Docrafts

Big Shot & Sizzix Wallflower Alphabet Dies
