Nuts About Sketches # 152

Monday morning means it's time for another new sketch at Nuts About Sketches. This is my take on Shawn's sketch.


I used this photo of Jemma jumping off the sand dunes at Findhorn beach. This is a long time favourite activity of the family, usually ending up with them bringing home half the beach in their trouser pockets!!

I kept to the sketch, omitting a couple of elements. I distressed the edges of the papers, and also added some hand stitching for a bit of detail.

Patterned papers: Jillibean Soup, SassafrassLass
Cardstock: Bazzill
Journalling spot: Jillibean Soup
Buttons: PaperMania
Embossing folder: Cuttlebug
Alphabet stickers: American Crafts, PaperMania
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities

Head over to the blog to see how the other DT girls interpreted the sketch!

I'm on holiday from work this week, so hoping to get lots of crafting done. I want to get ahead with my DT work, and also do a few challenges myself :) Oh, and there is the small matter of a little boy's birthday card that needs making...
