Anything Goes #6 + Saturday Sketch #111

I have used the Saturday Sketch to do a seaside theme LO for the Anything Goes Challenge.

Saturday Sketch #111 - sketch

Anything Goes #6 - seaside

Sorry for the bad picture but it's getting quite dark.

Papers are from a 12 x 12 DCWV stack 6, matting paper is from Papermania textured 12 x 12 pad.

I know you may not think this has anything to do with the seaside but trust me it does.  In Bridlington (the seaside) we found a new family member.  His name is Rocky and he is Rancorman's pet rock.  As you can see from the photo Rocky went everywhere with us on that very wet day.  Rancorman carried him around, he wouldn't fit in a pocket (see 1st small photo), he played with him, had his photo taken with him (as you can see).  Rocky even sat in the middle seat on the way home with a seat belt on (it didn't fit but Rancorman insisted).

For the last 5 years Rocky has sat on Rancorman's bedside table keeping him company at night and occasionally coming out for the day with us.

There is an amusing story I thought I might tell you about Rancorman, Rocky and a policeman.

The police came into school to do a talk on how knives, guns, drugs etc. are bad.  The children were asking questions about what was classed as an offensive weapon.  One of the children asked if carrying a rock around in your trouser pocket was classed as an offensive weapon.  The policeman said only if it was going to be used to do damage to people or property but not many people would walk around with a large rock in their pocket.  "I do", pipes up Rancorman, "he's called Rocky and he's my pet rock".  A bemused policeman told Rancorman he wouldn't be arrested as long as Rocky stayed in his pocket.

I hope everyone had a great weekend.  Happy Crafting.  :-) xx
