Another challenge layout

Good morning.. a beautiful sunny day in my corner of Kent and instead of being in the garden sunbathing (or, more like, gardening) I am indoors waiting for a collection of an item I've sold to another crafty acquaintance. She's got a bit lost (she's currently driving around the M25 in the wrong direction!) so I thought I'd take the opportunity to catch up with another blog post.

Today I'm bringing you another layout based on a challenge. I do like a challenge to keep me motivated!

This one is based on a blog called 'Challenge Yourself'. Each month they provide a sketch or similar and you are encouraged to scrap about yourself too! Now, this is notoriously something we scrapbookers are terrible at, so it really is a challenge! It also required it to be a summery theme, and although it isn't overtly summery, it was taken this summer and we are both in summery clothes so in my view, this fits the criteria.  

This is July's sketch
 and this is the layout I have made with this as the starting point.

I again used papers from my Counterfeit Kit and added more of the gold stickers from last months kit too.

Well it's a quick post..but that's it for now.. do pop back soon though as I will have more to show you!
