5 Kids-In the living room- with the crayons

This week the challenge at Child's Play Challenges is the board game Clue. To be honest, I was stumped on this one. I didn't have any board game pics to scrap, and didn't feel like going with the colors of the game. Every time I thought of Clue, all I could think was, "Mr. Mustard, In the Dining Room, With the Candlestick". So...

I went with, "5 Kids, in the living room, with the crayons". It's not a particularly fabulous photo, but I'm kind of proud of the story behind it. See, along with my own 2 kiddos, I have 3 extras most days in the summer. So that's 5 kids all ages 10-12. And while some days are a breeze, there are days when humid temperatures, bad attitudes and just general middle-school moodiness can really put a damper on things. And this was one of those days! So I printed up some elaborate stained-glass coloring pages, set them out with a collection of fancy crayons and there was an hour of quiet (which I can tell you does not happen often!) while all 5 kids agreeably colored on their bellies under the cool air of the ceiling fan. It was kind of magical!! 

In addition to this page being made for the Clue challenge at Child's Play, I've also incorporated a few other challenges, starting with this fabulous sketch at Sketch with Color for their DT Call! 

I've also used the BROWN, ORANGE and CREAM color scheme at For Fun Challenges and a TON of ORANGE brads from my stash for the challenge at Use It Tuesday! (seriously, how many brads does one person need??) =) T

  5. Tiffany, a girl can NEVER have too many brads, however, I'm glad you used some of them for this challenge. Your layout and story are both great. thanks for joining us at UIT!

  6. Oh I love me some brads!! I'm not sure you can have too many...12 containers later (like you put nuts and screws in!!
    I love the story and hope it is journaled somewhere so the story can be passed on...the important part!!
