Tonight was all about my favourites - hanging out at my favourite place (home with my family) and, after dinner, visiting one of my favourite scrappy forums. I'm joining in the Easter Crop at Scrap Boutique, and tonight I finished the first challenge - Chelsea's speed scrap.

I had just over an hour to complete and upload the layout (using the provided sketch for inspiration, and using at least three different patterned papers). I lost count of how many different papers I used, but there are papers from two different Echo Park ranges, Crate Paper 'Emma's Shoppe', Prima 'Annalee' and half a dozen different papers from my "tiny scraps" folder to make the rolled roses. In keeping with speed-scrapping tradition, the night-time photograph is suitably poor and not quite true to colour, but it still shows how much fun I had with it!

My layout is (another one) about Jasmine's favourite pastime - swimming. I had a quick browse through my layouts over the last year and there are a dozen or more which focus on her swimming lessons!

This layout is also for:
# A Few of My Favorite Things ~ Favourite pastime
# Tuesday Throwdown ~ Polka Dots
