Sketches and Challenges

I have such a lot of blogging to catch up on after being poorly at the beginning of the month. Maybe it was the fact that I had my 40th birthday last week and my body went into to shock! Im lacking in energy at the moment but am on the up now, so only a matter of time before I am back to full-working order.

It has been a while since I posted anything creative so I have quite a few creations to share. 

This first layout was made for my team challenge on UKS. I am a proud member of The Rik Rak Ravers and this week it was our turn to set the weekly challenge. You can see the thread for the challenge - here  The photo's are of our 3 gorgeous children. I used Bo Bunny pp, E Line pearls and Prima fabric flowers. The trade mark Ric Rak was coloured to match the papers using an ink pad and then stuck down to form the inner circle. The metal butterfly embellishments were coloured in using peel-off pens. 

This next layout was also put together for a challenge on UKS back in October. 
This challenge was set by Suzysnail :
- random misting or splattering of paint on background 
- use numbers 
- use symbol 
- use ribbon 

The photo here is of my darling Zac. He is such an elegant cat and loves to pose for the camera. I used Glimmer Mists to transform my kraft cardstock. The number 1 was used in my title '1 Purrfect Pose' and a very deserving symbol was the glittered crown that I placed on Zac's head. To add the finishing touches I used a gold/cream two tone ribbon to create loops along the top of the orange paper. This is the first of many cat / dog layouts I am planning on doing so watch out for more to come.

This final layout was done for a sketch challenge using a Anna Bowkis sketch. At the beginning of October we had unseasonably warm weather. This photo of my husband and son was taken on 9th October on our local beach. If only every day could be so warm!
