March Sketch Challenge.

Are you up for another challenge? This months sketch challenge has just gone up over at My Creative Sketches and as always Pam has got an amazing prize to give away just have a look at this....


 Here is the sketch, you have got until April 14th to get your entry in, check out all the details over on the sketch blog here. You can also see how the rest of the design team used the sketch, there are some stunning creations over there!


Here is my take, I recently bought some October Afternoon Farmhouse papers the colours and designs are gorgeous!


I am loving the wood grain effect papers that are around at the moment, they create such a great background. I have had this one for ages, it was an A4 sheet from Kanban but I know MME have got some great ones out at the moment. Definitely on my NEED list!



I used some natural hemp twine around the edge of my page, knotting and stitching it in different ways, you can only just see the edge of it on the photo but it gives a great border to the page.


Thank you for taking the time to check out my blog.
