Page drafts sketch challenge 'One of a kind'

Good morning... welcome to another drizzly morning in my corner of Kent, UK! 

Today I am brining you a LO inspired by the Page Draft May Challenge.. 'One of a Kind'. This challenge inspired you to scrap about a special person, or a special event. 

Regular followers know that recently I have been scrapping wedding photos.. so this qualifies.. and pictures of my Mum.. who is also 'One of a Kind' .. but I feel I need a break from those two themes.. so I decided to scrap about my beloved husband! Altogether now... Awww! 

He is my rock! He is hard working, helpful, kind and considerate... and, I think, gorgeous and handsome too.. but then I am biased! lol. 

He helps me with everything around the house... washing, ironing, gardening.. you name it he does it. He really is a little star!
We've been married 34 years in June and I can honestly say I want to spend the next 34 years with him too... God willing! 

This LO is therefore about him.. My very own 'one of a kind'! 

I took this sketch here: 

and created the LO below. I used my CKCB kit 'May Madness' for the basics and added embellishments from my stash too. 

Often with sketches I rotate them to work for me.. but this one was just awesome the way it was and I couldn't wait to start on it. 

I started with finding the right papers to go with the card stock I had chosen to go with all the green in the photo, cut the banners and arranged them in a way I was happy with, top and bottom, then I inked all the edges and matted the photo on top. I then punched the bunting with  a Stampin' Up punch and added small hand cut cameras from a Bo Bunny sticker sheet and added some more stickers that read 'Snaphots Tell the story'. 




I used a ready made title that was just perfect for the challenge and added lots of embellishments from my kit and finished it off with journalling around the edge of the page. 

I am very pleased with the way this one turned out and I hope you like what you see.. I think it does justice to my lovely husband. What do you think?

Thanks for popping by.... come back soon!
