Partners In Crime - My Scraps N More

Today I have a post-crop day layout for you. Since then I have had a serious craving to craft more! And after this week I should hopefully have a little more to for it too!

Partners In Crime

Surprise. Surprise. I was inspired by a sketch challenge, this time completely. I found the sketch over at My Scraps & More  number 86 and just loved it soo much plus the prize is fabulous, so I actually went looking for a photo to match. Normally its the other way around or an instantaneous "yep, that photo this sketch".

The square picture spot sent me to my instagram feed to source one. There I found this shot of my children on a particularly destructive day and was shocked that I hadn't scrapped it or at least printed it early! It is a perfect representative of my days.

The Simple Stories "Daily Grind" was a no-brainer for this layout!! The 6x12 page elements sheet was great to help convey the day/story and emphasises just how many times they'd done this that day.
For me this is a lot of journalling. I wrote outside on the exact moment as that was already covered.

I struggled (and still am struggling) with the title. I knew the words but couldn't find the right font/lettering. I wish I had of used smaller thickers for the 'in' and just wish I had enough letters to use the 'partners' stickers for the word crime too!

Unfortunately there is a light sprinkling of white on the photo as I had an oversight while misting a different page, woops. The 'Hey there' was a perfect embellishment as I probably said that once or twice when I caught them emptying again.

A perfect banner match to finish the page! As much as I am super excited part of me dreads these two growing up! Who knows what they will get up! They have already out-smarted me a few times...

Note: I am pleased to report that this page was chosen as one of the Top 3 at My Scraps N More.


  1. Great page, but I think you linked it up at Stuck?! in error.

    1. Yes I did. Woops. I have removed the link. I am currently working on my Stuck?! entry now and got a little mixed up. Sorry.

  2. My oh my - fun times ahead! Maybe just leave the mess until the end of the day??? I like the colours you have used - drawing on the photo colours perfectly. It gets frustrating when you start to run out of letters doesn't it? I've started mixing five/six fonts together. It looks quite good - maybe you can try that? Great job. Hugs to all of you. XXXX
