Flood Fun

The weekly challenge on  UKS this week incorporated this sketch along with the criteria of using only scraps and 2 photos.


I had 2 photo’s ready and waiting to be scrapped so that was easy, the sketch is pretty much OK too and its always great to use up some of those scraps so all in all a pretty good challenge.

Here is what I came up with:


My crazy son Joe making the most of the flood waters from last years flooding. Everyone else was worried and stressed out by the rising waters but not Joe. He saw the newly flooded back yard as a play zone.  And as you can probably tell from the photo’s he is not a little boy . . . .   more like a big kid!

These were the  biggest pieces of scraps I could find in the colours I wanted to match the photo. As I didn’t have a piece big enough for the main background I drew it on with a marker instead to give the same effect.

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. very colourful layout. Love how your son saw the fun were everyone else was worrying. :)
