two sketches and something for me

Its not very often that I seem to crap without a plan in mind or a challenge giving me an idea but I did today. This LO shows Nancy playing on her Daddy's DSI- there she was sitting on the sofa, painted toenails and make-up every inch the teenager but actually only three- hence the title "when did you turn 13?"
12/365This LO was based on one from sketchabilities although by the end it had deviated rather a lot from the original- there are flowers instead of the two smaller photos, there are butterflies instead of snowflakes and the block of paper at the side is a lot thinner- still it seems quite similar doesn't it?
9/365This was the sketch

And this last one was for twisted sketches no82

I didn't really have a piece of diecut card for the Lo so I made my own ( smaller so I could leave some whit space). I folded the paper into four so that it would be symmetrical ( you can still see the fold marks but it's not too bad)

The twist for the sketch was remember so I used an old photo of me as a Brownie some time in the early 80s. I've used quite a few border punches on this and layered it all up there is even a layer over the doily if you look closely.
This was the sketch
