for the scrappiest and pencil lines

This one is for Pencil Lines sketch 217

but i have also used the nautical elements challenge from Design Dollies for my inspiration

The picture is the boys by Lake Como throwing stones into the water which is one of their favourite things to do - they can carry on for hours!

I used October Afternoon papers- the waves and the ships to add the nautical theme


And this is for the Scrappiest

I seem to have flipped the sketch although i didn't mean to when I started but it just looked better in the end.
This Is a LO with me and my Mum in my Nan's front garden in the summer of 1975- I don't mind the fact that my Mum's head has been cut off- digital cameras have removed the likelihood of that happening so its a nice reminder of times past!


  1. Both layouts are beautiful! Love the stitching on the second one!

  2. Cute LO's...I like the doilie on your 2nd one. Thanks for joining us over at The Scrappiest.

  3. Love your take on the sketch. Thanks for playing!

  4. Hi Karen,

    I thought I commented on your gorgeous 'Throwing Stones' LO last week, but obviously not... I love your choice of the OA papers for the LO and I especially love the three little sailboats :)

  5. I lovethe big circle in the background, a great touch to the sketch!
    Thanks for playing along at The Scrappiest!
