Hello - DT layout for Stuck?! Sketches

Welcome back today, it's lovely to have you come and visit.
Today I have a project for Stuck?! Sketches.
As a young girl I was not a big fan of pink in any hue, but I find myself using it a lot 
with a Granddaughter to scrap about.  Her favourite colours are pink, purple, gold and silver.

The pink spotty background paper is from Upikit.
The floral paper is a newer one from Cocoa Vanilla, Make a wish collection, "Fresh Cut."

I used a Scrapmatts stencil to create the daisies in the background.
The chipboard flowers and leaves are also from Scrapmatts.
CB1022 Flowers 02
CB1153 Leaf Spray 08
The little heart brad is an oldie from Prima.
The title, the banner and the butterfly are all from WeR memory keepers.

The journalling is on the back of the page and it reads:-

We were almost at the end of a photo session when this one was snapped and you were getting bored with it all.  No wonder really; you'd brought three dresses and wanted to be photographed in each of them.   We had all your usual repertoire; funny faces, cheeky grins, head on the side, eyes a'poppin, duck lips and the whole catastrophe, but then, when I was about to call it a day, we got this; completely natural and completely you.    Photo 28th September 2016.  Love Granny.

We have two generous sponsors for this sketch, why not enter and be eligible to win a great prize.
Scrapmatts are offering two large pieces of chipboard.
and The Scraproom are offering a $20.00 Gift Certificate for their on line store.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment; I do enjoy reading them.


  1. Hi Helen, how are your Christmas preparations going? No need to panic yet I say, although the shops are crazy so don't want to think about what next week is going to be like! Your take on that lovely sketch looks so sweet, the papers are pretty and love the pops of gold and of course the adorable photo steals the show! And here we are at Friday again already! Have a good weekend!

  4. The daisies! Loooove those bub bits - such a great idea. Fab journaling of course! And weirdly enough I was walking thru our local shops on Thursday thinking how I NEVER wore pink in my 20s. To me it was a little girl colour. Now in my 50s I wear it with Gay Abandon.... hmmmnnnn.... what does that say dyou think??!!!!....
