and the sketch is....
and dont forget to pop over to the blog to see the way the design team have each created for this sketch..
and my take..
some closer views..
die cuts, clusters and some stamping on the back ground for interest..
The little hearts are from the cog die cut and the little flower gem has been in my stash for years.. I am trying to use stuff up, and perhaps it will take me years to make a dent, but you just gotta start somewhere!!!
my layout... trust, love.
So again I do thank you for coming by, I do like to keep my blog going as it will be my digital scrap print and something to one day look back on... and the comments you leave me are very special too...
Hi Lizzy!! Nice to hear your weather is a bit more pleasant for you now. We've had some lovely days down here and even a bit of rain but, apparently, it is starting to warm up again so I guess we will be glued to the aircon again! LOL!! Such is life I guess. Love, love, love your page! My fave colour combo and the photo is so precious and gorgeous! I have never owned a horse but I have ridden one or two .. when I was way younger of course .. even got kicked by one, again, when I was way younger .. LOL! Absolutely adore them. They are such magnificent creatures! As I said before, Love, love, love your page!! Have a fabulous week Lizzy! hugs xxReplyDelete
This is GORGEOUS!!!! LOVING those memorable photos and the colors are PERFECTION!!!! Glad the weather is getting cooler for you!!!ReplyDelete
Awesome layout, Lizzy. The diecuts are a perfect touch. Glad to hear you've had some relief from the heat. We are expecting snow tonight but a warm up for the weekend.ReplyDelete

Love the colour combo on this page! One of my favourites! ;-) Beautiful and gorgeous page too...love the slightly grungy feel! ;-)ReplyDelete
Re de-stashing...LOL...I don't think my de-stashing even makes small dents either...but yes, I so agree, one must start somewhere! ;-)
