Creative Scrappers Sketch #278

Good afternoon everyone.    I have another page I'm sharing today using a sketch from Creative Scrappers.
I was all enthusiastic and suggested to Jean that we do some scrapbook sketches.   Mmmmm well once again, a wee bit over ambitious!!!!    The photos I've used aren't gorgeous scenes, or wonderful days at the beach etc, just pictures of what I was taking to a friend's place for a day's sewing. lol    For some reason, I'm not very good at travelling lightly.    I try but end saying 'Oh I better take this or that in case I need it!'. 

So before I unloaded the car, I took some photos of exactly what I did have with me and this is the resulting page using the sketch.    This page nearly didn't happen because I thought people want to see scenes etc but after some more thinking, I decided that it's all about MY pages and MY way of scrap booking.
One thing that is fairly awesome, is that I've managed to do some sewing on this page without any problem at all.  The letters, flair and extra bits are from the Scrappy Canary August kits.

Thanks for visiting today.  Keep well.

Scrappy Canary September Sketch Challenge

Good morning everyone.  Yes, I know.......a very neglected blog.   My apologies.    I have been making cards and doing some classes but life has been hectic lately.    Once again, I'm trying my hand at scrap booking.    Did you notice I said 'trying'.  I can make cards, work out what's right and what's not right with them but when it comes to this sort of work......I am stumped.   The best I can do is follow a sketch, well try to anyway. lol
Last month for the August sketch challenge at Scrappy Canary, I won it.  Random draw....I couldn't possibly have won it on my work. lol
So here I am again, entering September's sketch challenge.
I used another photo from the same selection as the last two lay outs.  That way they'll all match, I hope. 
The end result is the second time around.......the first attempt, well, most of it is in the bin.   I kept the top section and changed the base page.  All the bits except the base page are from the this kit and this one.  The backing paper is Stampin' Up from the SAB dsp pack this year.
It's a miserable day here today.   Overcast, coolish and wet.    I personally don't mind BUT we are in the middle of the crushing here and goodness knows when the cane will get cut now, all the paddocks will have to dry out.
I'm going to try another sketch today....Creative Scrappers sketch #278.   I also have to do my teddy   It's so cute.
That's all from me today.   Keep well everyone.
