One for Shimelle (and a Scrapbookers Anonymous design team call)

You may have noticed that I love Shimelle's sketches- and this on was no exception. Having said that I seem to have veered away from the sketch somewhat!

I loved this Sassafras Lass paper but I am such a miser with paper that I cut it apart so the strip does not run all the way down behind the photo- It also allowed me to turn things round so I could get the pink flowers on show.

Instead of a horizontal piece of paper I cut some old Basic grey into the "bracket?" shape and put it vertically.

Its a gorgeous picture of Nancy on the Stoom Tram last spring when we went through some of the bulb fields 257/365
and the sketch

And the Design Team call?

Scrapbookers Anonymous are looking to add to our team of designers. I know... you are thinking, what do I have to do? Well, we want you to dig into your stash of stamps. Use those stamps to make at least one piece of patterned paper for your layout and 3 stamped embellishments.

look here for more details- design team call

  4. Thats the great thing about sketches - you can use them as a jumping off point but don't have to copy them... just make them your own - and you did a great job doing that!
