STUCK?! July 1 Sketch and CHALLENGE YOUrself #43.

Hello there,
How are you? For us aussies, we are in Winter, and I really can't complain, the mornings lately have been frosty, but the days have been warming up nicely.. I just wish the days would slow down...  I have actually been in a bit of a mojo slump, so to help that I decided to do a sketch, and I always love the ones over at STUCK?! SKETCHES and so I created a layout using the July 1st sketch.. which looks like..

Well thats the design taken care of, so then I thought I would join in with the challenge over at CHALLENGE YOUrself #43 which was to use some hand written journalling on your layout... and a photo with me in it...  So  I  found a photo of my Dd and I taken this year, printed it off twice and away I went...

some closer views..
I have used the lovely papers from Kaisercraft Cherry Tree Collection and had to do some fussy cutting, cos that is my stress buster!! The chipboard is an old Scrap FX one and some straws too.

Some stamping on the back ground and the leaf chipboard is from Blue Fern.

My journalling has been adapted from a quote I found.. 
and my layout..

My Daughter..

I did enjoy creating this layout, I have used some really old chipboard pieces which I have had for ages.. A lovely sketch and a prompt to do some hand written journalling.. Thanks to STUCK?! and also CHALLENGE YOUrself .

Thanks so much for dropping by, every day seems to be so busy.. and I do appreciate the comments you leave me too..

123 CHALLENGE BLOG JULY - New Look Challenge..

Hello there,
I hope your day is going well.. I am just popping in to put up the new challenge for the 123 CHALLENGE BLOG and the whole challenge has been revamped.. There is still the theme of 123, so without further ado here is this months challenge...
There is 1 sketch, 2 words, and 3 colors..  Make sure you pop over to the 123 CHALLENGE BLOG  for a full description of the way to complete and enter the challenge..  We hope you like the new challenge and hope you can join in this month..  There is always great prizes!!

My DT take..

closer views...

All the chipboard is from Scrapmatts..

I have used the sketch and the colors, you can use other colors as well, as long as the 3 colors are dominant. HAPPY TIME is in my journalling.. I must admit my pink is a bit richer than the color on the challenge board .. So I reckon if you try and get as close to the shade as possible..  I dont think you need to go out and buy new stuff just to complete this challenge but use what you have..  123 Challenge blog is just hoping to have more people join in!!!

So thanks for coming by, and thank you for the lovely comments that you leave me to read..  I appreciate each one!!
