Ding Dong

I live near a church and every Tuesday they have bell ringing practise.  Last night I turned the TV off, got in the bath and relaxed while listening to the was bliss.  It got me to thinking about how I would like to give it a go, I'm sure I have the strength to hoist a big ole bell attached to a rope.  It's not often in a town that you hear real bells pealing out, some places have mechanical bells, so maybe I should hurry and investigate about joining a group before all of the bell ringers disappear.

I just had to show you this layout and I am so pleased that the person I made it for gave me permission to show it off.  I did it for a work colleague who wasn't really sure about scrapping so, rather than try to explain it, I asked for a picture of her son and this is what I made:
It was inspired by The Strand class done for the UKScrappers cybercrop.

Because I'm so nosy it was easy to pick up snippets of what Harry is like and I can't say how much I enjoyed doing it.  It's the first layout I've done that hasn't ended up in one of my albums but I do know that it went straight into a box frame and up on a wall.

The other thing I would like to try is line to investigate! x
