Happy day LO

Hi there

Today I am here to share with you a LO that I have made using part of my CKCB kit and also some additional paper that I added. When I compiled my kit, I definitely didn't use enough full pages and I have only scraps left.. and this photo called out for something more meaningful than a plain sheet of cardstock for the background. I hope you don't mind me adding extra papers in? 

The LO was made with a page from Teresa Collins, Memorabilia range and I added washi, bling and brads from my CKCB kit. As it is such a simple page, I really needed to add hardly anything.. so please excuse the simplicity. 


The sketch I used was inspired by my UKS friend, Sue, over on her blog, Me and Mine. Each month she runs a sketch challenge and just recently I was lucky enough to win and she sent me a wonderful prize... so here is this months sketch.

As you can see, I did a fairly faithful replica of the sketch..but I could see how my photo would work without any alterations. 

I also found a challenge over on Texan The Crafty Scrapper blog that challenged me to add black into my LO's so I have linked back to them too. Thanks for the inspiration guys! 

Do let me now what you think, and for those of you that comment and become a follower, there is a small prize draw at the end of April. 

Thanks for stopping by.
