Sassy Send Off sketch :: Horsing Around

It was sadly announced last week, that Cherie and Katie were closing Sassy Lil' Sketches :(

As a farewell send off, the blog is revealing a sketch a day from 2nd to 9th October. This is my layout for sketch #5.

These are photographs from 1949. They show my Nana and a family friend Edith enjoying a pony ride at Yarmouth. This is the same Edith that ended up shoving confetti down the back of my wedding dress.... I love these photos, they both look like they are having so much fun!

I switched it up a bit, by doing a 8.5 x 11 page, and kept the photos as rectangles to keep the ratios looking right. I also only used 3 photos, replacing the 4th with patterned paper to hold my journalling.

I used Bazzill cardstock, and all the papers are from Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker. The border was done using a Martha Stewart border punch, and the banner was cut from the patterned paper.

There are Sassy Lil' Sketches E-books up for grabs as prizes this week - one for each of the sketches, so 8 in total! To be in with a chance, link up your layout or card using a sketch from this week onto the blog by 23rd October.

I'd just like to say thank you to Cherie and Katie, for giving me my first Design Team spot, and by providing me with so much inspiration and support during my time with them, and wish them all the best for the future.  I will miss Cherie's sketches, and the rest of the Sassy girls :(
