Guest Designer August - Sketch

Well things have finally slowed down enough that I was able to participate in the Sketch Challenge over at Colorful Creations. Every week we have a new Sketch along with a Guest Designer, this month we have Lynn, if you have a chance I am sure she would love you to check out her work on her blog and I promise you won't be disappointed.

Here is my take, I sort of twisted some of the elements here and I created a 9"sq page, I find these are heaps quicker to do if you are working on limited time.  To most this is far from a perfect photo,  but for me this is what scrapping is about, documenting a moment regardless what the state the image is.  This one here is of me and my younger cousin, I'm really not sure if someone was trying to take a photo of us or the car in the  and I don't remember much about the day other than having our hair primped and getting to wear our pretty dresses for my Aunties wedding day.


I have used Dusty Attic Chipboard and cut two of the Memory Box die cuts.
Here I have used Jenny Bowlin Core Impressions for the background, sanding to reveal the embossed print a little better.  I have also used MME "Sunshine "Lovely"Sewing paper along with Hambly transparencies.

Im loving these dies from Memory Box, they are delicate and are a perfect addition to your page. Other products I have used are Dusty Attich mini bird chippies, Prima bloom, Martha Stewart Cherish border punch, MM mini alphas and some other odds and ends from my stash.

Well I hope everyone is enjoying there weekend,  its beautiful and sunny here in Queensland so Im hoping to get a little time outside in the sun to get my daily dose of vitamin D.

Thanks for looking, its great to read your comments so thanks to those that take the time out to do so.

Take Care
