I love to feature ephemera on my los and before the house move had a major sort out and placed all the ephemera I had saved over the years into envelopes in year order. I also wrote a list of the stories I wanted to tell using the ephemera. In October I have had a slightly different approach to making my CFK in that my friend Scrappy Sue came over a couple of weeks ago with a stack of papers she was disposing of, mostly old free papers from magazines. My kit this month is that pile of papers together with a box of bits and bobs I haven’t found time to pack away properly in my new craft studio and a happymail gift from my Sweet Marie in Canada which arrived this month.

My son in front of the setting sun playing footy ( or soccer if you're an Aussie)
And the shadow photos taken simply for their shadows
The Victory Hotel was opened in 1858 when it was named the Sellicks Hill Hotel. In 1859 it was known as Norman's Victory in honour of John Norman, Chairman of the Aldinga District Council, who had fought a long battle with the Central Road Board to have the Sellicks Hill Road constructed.
However I thought The Victory Hotel which we drive past every day needed a little window dressing; cue hot hubbie...

A FUN Fountain with on and off jets at Marine World which we chased each other around until we all got wet and then.....
... in August we went to Adelaide to show our Japanese exchange student "Kitchi" the city and saw the FOUNTAIN WE FIRST THOUGHT OF. I got Kitchi to photograph me and the love of my life here. It was a real challenge to explain through the English Japanese language language barrier what I wanted him to do but, with sign language and several attempts he did a super job.

It started with a sketch but looks so unlike it its not worth comparing with it, the only resemblance is that the photos are all square.
I used some tie die pp for the background as it looked firework like and the glasses were from Australia day celebrations with diffraction grating lenses for viewing the fireworks.
I coloured the theatre ticket and the card stock and journaling strips which were from my swapped June cfk to make them fit the colour scheme as they were too peachy. Hurrah for distress inks.

And so this is why i have now have a letter sheet without a single F left in it!
Made with "Sue's Shared and Swapped Scraps kit"
I made this for the UKS weekly challenge
to use blue, swirls (I made ribbon swirls), delicate papers, and a quirky cluster of elements, my title!
Here is the lovely kit made by Scrappy Sue which she gave me when I shared my June Counterfeit kit with her.
There were lots of lovely scraps (she puts much bigger pieces in her scrap pile than i do!) and it was such fun to play with some new (to me papers)

I have completed this for the CSI challenge and the evidence I have used is corrugated paper (I dug out the little machine from the back of the cupboard) and the Chevron pattern which I hand cut from some "plaid" paper.
My journaling includes childhood memories obviously for my kids but also for both me and my dh of enforced walking in the rain when we were young as part of the British brainwashing process!
