My Hero Nathan Hindmarsh


I am just sneaking in with my final layout for the Snappy Canary Cyber Crop - Challenge #5,
A Sketch.

And My Take

Nathan Hindmarsh recently came to a small town near us, approx. 30 mins away to run a coaching clinic. My boy is a rugby league and Parramatta Eels die hard, I had to take him, lol. Poor Nathan though as Tyler followed him around pretty much the whole time. But I give Nathan Hindmarsh this, He is fantastic with the kids, if your every have a chance to take your kids to something like this with him, Do It.

Anyway, Have used PP and Stickers from Kaisercraft Game On, And Class Act Range, Kaisercraft stencils with Texture Paste, Gesso, Stamps from Kaisercraft & Bo Bunny, Distress Inks & Staz On Ink, Washi Tape & Studio Fourteen40 Flairs.

Thank You To Manda & the Scrappy Canary Team for their Cyber Crop, I loved the challenges & really enjoyed doing the layouts inspired by them. Also, don't think I've ever done this many layouts in 9 days before.

At the Footy.

Just popping up my take on the weekly sketch over at Lets Scrap Sketches Blog

The Sketch

My Take

Hope you can see the sketch in there as I got a bit carried away, as you do.
As mush as I love doing doubles I still have not mastered photographing them.
Anyway, when I first saw the sketch I knew I had to do it & these were the photo's I though
out straight away. This was my 2 young boys first trip to the football & they just loved it, apart
from our team losing that is.
For this one I have used Kaisercraft Game On PP & some collectables & stickers, Kaiser card stock
and Bella Sugar candy glittered PP. Texture paste & Kaiser diamond stencil. And from Sudio Fourteen40, 2 flairs & vellum tab.
