I used the High School Girl file to make my layout today. (http://creativekuts.com/High-School-Girl-HSG730.htm ) I'm featuring my granddaughter who is my favorite subject to scrapbook.. anyway, she's entering 6th grade this year. Check out the layout, then I'll tell you the story and you'll find out who won in the showdown of the combination lock!
Now the story of the lock!! This was her first time using a comination lock. She tried at least 2 dozen times, but didn't get that if you passed the number by even one mark, you couldn't go back and then go to the next number. She was so frustrated. Her Dad tried, Her Mother tried, and I tried, but nope, the lock won!! The child next to her was struggling too! Their adult got their lock opened, and then helped Emily. She beat the lock.. so now we're all on a mission to master the lock! Emily tired again, nope, the lock won. I tried, and I beat the Lock!! Yeah!! Emily gave her ole granny quite the look, as if to say, " well if my granny can do it, surely I can..." so she tried it again. This time sweet success!!! She did it a few more times, and by the 2nd day of school, had mastered the lock! Now to master the Clarinet, but that's another story.. she had hers for less than one day and broke the bell piece...anyway... never a dull moment. Maybe Cheryl will do a file for the Clarinet and I can document that story for her to have to live down..
Now if you want to join in on the BAP's, go to Creative Kuts on Facebook. You request the file on Monday or Tuesday, (and it's free!) then make the project and post it by the deadline. They are always so cute and creative and it's fun to see how one project comes out so differently when everyone puts their spin on it! This week's was a wrapped box, with a surprise inside. Take a look at mine, but check out Facebook to see other great results!
The little box slides out to reveal a cute card. I can't wait till next week to see what the BAP will be... hope to see you over there!
