Hope the Wind Doesn't Change!

We're well into June now, but I'm still working on May challenges. Sketch-n-Scrap celebrated their third birthday with a month of challenges, and some of them are open for another couple of weeks so there's still time to join in. 

I've made this page for DT member Leah's second challenge; she gave us this sketch and the requirement for three arrows on the page.

I'm combining it with the June stash challenge from Scrap Our Stash, who have asked for a page using stash beginning with each of the letters in the word BRADS. My items are: Brown letters, paper from the Ready Set Go collection, Arrows (obviously), Doodling and Stickers.

The photo is a selfie that my sister-in-law took of her and my father. I struggled for a title, until I thought of the old advice to children about not pulling faces in case the wind changes and you're stuck like that. All the papers (except the background) came from a 6x6 pad, and some of them required some creative cutting and piecing to make them look a bit larger.
