Another sketch challenge......

I'm really enjoying my sketch challenge phase at the moment....  :)

 This one is from and jumped out of the screen at I got my gorgeous collection pack of "Lucille" by basic grey and set to work at this months Papermaze crop. 
I didn't use much chalk ink on this page but I did spend a lot of time distressing the edges and making a right dusty  mess!

The flower embellishment was cut and layered up from patterned paper, and all the stickers are Lucille.

When we visited my sister last year, my husband had been asked to bring back an Oklahoma fridge magnet..... Now usually they are everywhere you go, but we were having some difficulty, and  made a special trip to the museum knowing they would have some....only to find it was closed !
Still it was a good back drop for the photos :)

Here's the sketch.

Recyle challenge.....

The Sarah Hurley Challenge Blog is currently looking at Recycling.....

 I have to admit I have quite a hoard of little bits and bobs I come across which "Will come in Handy" for my layouts, so this challenge was right up my street.

I gathered these bits together...Fat face tag, Cath Kidston postcard, October Afternoon packaging, narrow ribbon loops from the inside of a tee shirt ,a rainbow strap saved from the bin from a kiddies handbag, a Summer tag from a new beach towel and a small metal heart from an old pair of school uniform trousers !

....and voila....

The retro camera image is a Sarah Hurley digi stamp available in her Etsy shop here and was absolutely perfect for my layout..
The October Afternoon packaging made a superb journaling card, and I simply layered everything up with foam pads.

 The Challenge is open till 30th  March.
