Growing Up Gamers - Scrap Our Stash Sept. Pick Your Side Challenge

Hello, everyone! Happy Saturday to you! We have made it to the weekend and we are waiting for Miss Ada to come over for a visit. Now that she is in school we jump at the chance to keep her when her Mom and Dad have things to do!

It's time for the Scrap Our Stash - Pick Your Side Sketch Challenge Designer Inspiration Part 2. Here is the sketch that we had to pick a side from and the added challenge this month is to use banners/pennants on your layout:

I chose the right-hand side of the sketch but I rotated the sketch a half turn and used two landscape photos:

These photos are from 2001. I have really been enjoying going back through old photos that I never got around to scrapping at the time and scrapping them now. Looking back at them now the story - or perspective - is so different than what it would have been if I had scrapped them at the time.

This was a nightly occurrence in our house - the boys "playing" video games with their Dad. I think Matthew may have actually been playing with Scott, but Shane was just happy to hold onto the controller (the cord of the controller looked like it was plugged in, but it wasn't). I know this is where the boys' love of video games started and I love that we now have this memory documented. 

I have used my September Counterfeit Kit to create this layout. I am so happy that I included these older Echo Park papers in my kit - they were perfect for these photos!

Here are a couple of close-ups:

Be sure to stop by Scrap Our Stash to see how the rest of the design team took on this challenge. I hope you have a chance to play along with us this month!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Have a great day!
