Some sketchy goodness...

It's my turn to host the sketch challenge at Scrap Pile this month, and I also broke open a new package of Echo Park papers to create my layout with.

This is the sketch:

Digital credits:  'Grunge' papers by Toucan Scraps; 'A Delightful Day' journalling card (kit possibly retired) by Chelsea Parsons 

And this is my layout:

The layout is also my contribution to C.R.A.F.T. Challenge this week - with a theme of Family Activities.  Thank you Robin at Bows and Berries, who generously provided the 'Sewing Machine' image for me to use:

I used: Echo Park 'Victoria Gardens' papers and stickers, American Crafts foam Thickers, Prima 'Gatsby' flower (Myrtle) and packaging, and baker's twine. I'm probably the last scrapper in the universe to use baker's twine - I'm a bit slow on the uptake when it comes to trends!

I'm also submitting my layout at:
# Dream Valley ~ Anything goes
# Paper Playtime ~ Anything goes
