Watch a Movie

I made a realisation this week... I work well under pressure!
Maybe that shouldn't have come as a surprise given the line of work I'm in. My favourite part of my job is managing the labour ward after all :-)

But when it comes to my scrapping, in particular my 'assignments' for my DT commitments, I'm usually very organised and have it done well in advance. But what with the moving towns and starting a new job and all this month, can I be completely honest with you and tell you I just plain forgot about this month's From Screen 2 Scrap submission until the day before it was due?!! Oooppss!

Lucky for me the poster is a really easy one to work with, and the extra criteria is definitely do-able. It includes: 
For an extra 6 bonus points :)

1) One word title = 1 pt
2) Use Blue, Yellow and Red Cardstock = 2 pts
3) Add a Bird = 3 pts

So with my new-found ability to scrap when the pressure's on I was able to whip up this page in next to no time! And I have to say I was pretty pleased with the results :-) The only dilemma was that to photograph it in natural light (and with me working 10 hour shifts) I had to convince The Man to photograph it for me! He dutifully obliged. Heeee!

I was inspired by the movie poster to document Moodles love for adventure. She's not one to shy away from a new experience. I added a large bird wing (instead of a full bird) and some butterflies too to represent adventure and freedom and fun. My one word title is "Blessed" and together with the subtitle reads "Blessed are the Curious, for They Shall Have Adventure" which is quote I pinned here on Pinterest.

I'm trying very hard lately to break more into my Studio Calico kits as I seem to have an abundance of 'left-overs' and I'm not confident to say I've killed a kit yet in the 18 months or so that I've been subscribing. This layout is made with the November Napa Valley kit and features the Basic Grey Wander paper which was just perfect for my theme. As I said... I'm so happy with how this layout turned out. Hope to see you over at From Screen 2 Scrap.

And speaking of Basic Grey......
