Sketch challenge......

Feeling a bit twitchy, and wanting to use my Echo park papers again, I had a go at the March sketch challenge on the Scrap365 sketch blog here , which is open till the 15th march. 

The great thing I like about following a sketch is that the hard work of planning the look of the layout is already done it leaves you free to pick and choose your papers to fit. 
I did stick to my 8.5 x 11 size so it looks quite different from the 12 x12 sketch, but it was nice being "Told" to use a small photo !
I'm also very bad at story telling/journaling , so  I gave it a go and found it wasn't as hard as I
thought :) Might be trying that again.....

Thanks for stopping by
