Taking a challenge...

Lisa-Jane is a WOYWW Desker, and a member of I don't know how many design teams.  Scrapbooker extra-ordinaire, lemme tell ya.  well, she posted up May's chalelnge for SJ Crafts and because Saturday was National Scrap Booking Day, I thought I might have a crack at it.  OK.  I admit, it was more because it looked like a challenge I might actually be able to do without it looking totally contrived.
So the challenge was this Bingo grid...include three of the features but be sure to include the middle square, so work horizontally, diagonally, vertically, blah.  You get it.  Sooner than I did, I've no doubt.

Well, continuing with the crusade to scrap old photos as the mood takes me, I give you me and Mr Dunnit when I was 19.  We were on holiday in Argeles Sur Mer, south of France and rather bizarrely, I am wearing my old school sweatshirt.  I have to say that when I look at this, I just see fresh skinned youth. But I'm hoping you'll see the metal embellies, the mixed font alphas and the circles.  

You can already see it's My Mind's Eye papers and more doilies...but in my defence, they're circular! And I haven't done the journalling yet...that's because I was hoping to get some comment from Mr D first..you never know, he might have something more interesting to add than 'oh look at how young we were'.  Coming home from a crop with a finished LO except for the journalling is definitely a sign of my maturity (as a scrapbooker you understand) - in previous years I've just gone ahead and done it, just to call the page finished.  See, I'm evolving!
