DT post for Seems a Little Sketchy: scrapbook1

Good morning all - I'm a little late today - must be bootcamp! Ha ha! Seriously though the exercise is great - the no carbs, no caffeine or alcohol or sugary food (including fruit) thats running alongside it is much harder! And the caffeine withdrawal headache is not funny! Hopefully it will all be worth it!

Moan over - onto brighter things! Over at seemsalittlesketchy today we are trying out layouts for scrapbook pages. Its a just for fun challenge at this stage but if there's enough interest it will become sponsored! The first sketch we were given is this one:

And this is the page I made using it:

The photographs are from the Scarecrow festival at Wray back in late April/early May. The one of Lucy in the circle was from her school's entry into the festival which was commemorating the sinking of the Titanic - The photo is one of the portholes from the side of the ship! The other photo has Lucy and Penny with a fabulous Queen for the diamond jubilee and finally my rainbows entry to the festival, Olivia, celebrating 25 years of Rainbows.

Great memories! So if you've got some photos in need of a home why not try this sketch over at Seems a Little Sketchy - and there's still just under a week to join in with the latest sketch cahllenge for cards too!
Check it out here!

Big Hugs and see you tomorrow!
