Well I decided at the last minute to create a LO for the amazing Deer and Fawn monthly challenge today. And to say I struggled is an understatement!!! I think the mixture of a really painful bad back and the real desire to scrap while I had free time didn't really mix this time!! I did create a page but it's not my best Im sorry to say. But thought I would share anyway cos it shows that we have bad days too! 

So this is the challenge.....
April Challenge - use sprays, stencil, at least ONE paint colour & a household item as a stamp!

This challenge is fantastic! I love all the elements listed, and they are all techniques I use frequently, just not in the best way today unfortunately. 

So this is my LO......
I used mists and a stencil (I love this stencil) using texture paste mixed with black paint. My home made stamp is where it all went wrong....I decided to use a fork to squiggle lines, hmmmm might not try that again! O well I guess I can look at it as this, I still got to scrap a memory of my gorgeous boy and I.  

There are elements I do like on this page and that is the simple cluster.....
And of course the chance to use this pretty stencil ( it's a Tim holtz ). 
I wasn't going to share this as I'm a little embarrassed by the final result but thought I'd show that it's ok to have a bad day too and not everytime is perfect going to happen. 
Until next time I hope your scrapping endeavors are of the more perfect mistakes then the oh no ones! Xx
