1000,000 M&M's!

I have a page to show you today that has been waiting for me to find the time to post it! I find that if I don't get time to scrap for a few days I get quite stressed as there are so many wonderful sketch challenges out there in the world of blogland and I want to be able to do more of them!!!
But of course family life, responsibilities and only having 24 hours in a day tend to get in the way of my 'me time' (sigh).
Anyway enough of what I can't get done to what I have managed to finish, my page today was made using the sketch below and the theme 'NUMBERS' which is the challenge this month over at Once Upon A Sketch blog.

I had found the perfect papers for these photo's of my girls in the M&M shop in Florida, all the pipes were filled with the little round sweets and I thought the paper resembles the pipes of sweets. You can't tell from the photo's but the pipes extended all the way up the walls and across the ceiling! My girls (and me) thought this shop was amazing considering all they sold were M&M's!

The wording around the page was some rub-ons that I found in my stash that were probably many years old, as were the papers! I put them on some of the papers from the same line and cut around then doodled.
This challenge over at Once Upon A Sketch runs until the end of the month so there is still a few days left to enter. Get all the details HERE.

Thanks for dropping by and hopefully I will be back in a few days.


  1. Kerry! I laugh because I am learning that when I focus on something - something else gives. I mean, When I was not scrapping last month, my house was sparkling, I worked out, and more on top of other things! Now, I am back at scrapping - my house is not so shiny, I've slacked on the workouts, and well... you get the idea. I need to find the right balance!

    In any case, this shop seems amazing! You are right the paper is PERFECT for the subject! This layout is awesome and I enjoy all the wonderful details of your work! Good job friend!
