Windswept Sookie

Its the first of the month so time for the reveal in my Scrap-A-Sketch group!
This month was Lisa’s turn to choose our sketch and she selected this one from
Dusty Attic. Its not one of my favourite sketches but there were elements
of it that I did like so I decided to use those on my LO.

You can see from my finished LO that the lacing effect is there, the photo placement
with the strip at the bottom and the tag, although I chose to put my tag at the top of my photo instead of at the side.

The photo is of our adorable Sookie taken during her first trip to the beach. She absolutely loved it!  She was not in the least bit bothered by the crashing waves of the ocean and she loved the sand.



Notice the ‘Love It’ in the centre of the heart ?  Its from the bottom of the Coordinations Cardstock!  I was trimming off the bottom strip when I spotted it – ooh perfect to go onto my LO!  I removed the button from the centre of the Prima bloom and relocated on the tag. To go in its place I used a chipboard heart in the centre and then popped the ‘Love it’ piece of card on top.


The tag serves well for the journaling and then tucks behind the photo neatly:


The paw print brad was a must!  I have a whole packet of these that are slowly getting used on various furbaby LO’s:


I am so excited to finally be in October!  This is set to be a great fun month for me. In a few days I am heading off to bonnie Scotland to meet up with some wonderful friends for a 5 day scrapping fest then its home for 4 days to get refreshed and refuelled before jetting off to another scrappy retreat with friends at the Creative Heart & Soul Retreat in Coventry. Spoilt ?  Yes you might say that! With all this creative gathering I should have plenty to share on my blog during November.

Towards the end of the month there are a few fun things planned too but more of that later on!

Thanks for stopping by today x
