Stuck?! Sketches! DT 15th August - Dreamy Diva

Welome back to my blog today where I'm sharing a DT page for
I splurged on some new papers for this inspirational sketch. 
They are from Scrapberry - The "Elegantly Simple" collection.

The gorgeous flower and butterfly chipboards are from Scrapmatts,
 one of our generous Sponsors this month.

The journalling is on the back of the page and it reads:-
You were only a little girl when you came for your first sleepover with Granny and Pa.
You coped really with without Mummy and Daddy as long as we kept you busy and had plenty of outside time.  We have lots of bees in our garden and keeping your shoes on your feet proved to be a bit of a problem, but other than that, everything went well.  Can you spot the difference in the photos?  The first one was taken when you needed a sleep and the second one after you hopped up, full of the joys of life and ready to strike a pose!   
It was just a joy to have you stay overnight.   Love Granny.

  1. Such sweet pictures of your darling granddaughter & this was the perfect sketch for them! Love your new papers, Helen--can see why they deserved the splurge! Love how you used the colors of her outfit for the page--just beautiful! What a great memory captured in your journalling--always wonderfully written! PS--encouraging to know you had a puppy dog with pancreatitis just once & no further problems. Thanks so much for your friendship, Helen.

  2. Such a very pretty page Helen, love the flower Borges done the centre and the photos are very sweet too!
