SLS Jan 21st & Sassy doodling challenge

I'm finally caught up with the January sketches at Sassy Lil' Sketches. I combined the 21st Jan sketch with the doodling challenge that Pia set us on the forum.

Now, these photos aren't the blurriest (is that a word?) that I have ever taken, and boy, I am a master at all photos out of focus and blurred LOL. But they do represent to me a time when life was a blur to me. It was the last summer we spent in Gibraltar, and I had a very active toddler and a challenging 4 year old, who was desperate (and ready) to start school. Added to that, I was having trouble with migraines - I had 7 migraines in 10 days at one point - so the whole summer was just a blur to me.

I used papers from Fancy Pants "My Family" collection, and added some stitching using Bazzill In Stitchz templates. I punched out the flowers using retro flower punches, and the border strip was punched with a threading water punch. I added lots of doodling using my favourite white pen - a Signo uniball. I also doodled a border around the outside of the layout, using a Zig pen. I added a title using Heidi Grace chipboard letters.

Over at the Sassy Lil' Sketches Forum this weekend, we are having an online crop - the Dotted with Love Crop. There are some great challenges to join in with - and a couple of great sketches from Cherie. Feel free to pop along and have a look! Hope to see you there!
