SCRAPKI WYZWANIOWO - MARCH CHALLENGE:

And it's called 'SCENT'.
http://scrapki-wyzwaniowo.blogspot.com.au/2015/03/march-challenge-scent.html
Well, now, I scrapped about FISH!!
The journaling will explain it all!

I couldn't believe it when I came across these 2 photos:
 Alex and my bro, his Uncle Roden above.
Lucas and his Uncle Tim [Alex's bro] below:
 This paper had some sort of 'pretend' tape and stitching...so I added a bit more washi for effect!
So, there we go! The anchor is from the stamping packaging from my 7 DOTS STUDIO stamps!
Waste not, want not as they say!!
Thanks for looking ~ Cheers, Lizzy ♥♥♥

  1. Those are some amazing masculine layers going on there! Love the stapled down twine and that chippy crab (which is placed just perfectly)!! I also think the expression of wonder on that little dude's face is priceless. Great memories!

  2. Oh Lizzy this is fabulous! I love the story it tells. We live near the beach too so fishing is also a part of our families heritage. I have memories of my son at a similar age getting cranky with his Pa because he cut the head off of a fish they had just caught. I distinctly remember Cameron saying "Pa! You broke it!" Thank you for entering and thank you for the memories xx

Love the photos, my word lucas and alex look so alike.. and fishing is a wonderful hobby, well for me it is feeding the fish or catching weed!! hehe.. but it is still fun.. your journalling is always wonderful and I always enjoy this part of your fabulous layouts..
