A couple of challenge layouts

While I was away at Meadow Barn over the weekend it was Sketchy Scrappers reveal time. This months sketch was chosen by Ally who chose this Pagemaps sketch

I loved this sketch as it gave me the chance to use up some more scraps. So the scraps bag came out and I came up with this layout

The photo was taken last summer at our local car show. We were walking past the camper vans when we came across this little chap inside one of the vans. If only we could put a Hawaiian shirt on Buster lol! The scraps of paper are MME, My Little Shoe Box & Lilybee Designs, the background paper is Pebbles I think. The felt hearts are from a roll I've had for a while from Panduro, and the letter are American Crafts Thickers and Lilybee Designs.

While at Meadow Barn one of the layouts I did was for the weekly challenge over on UKS last week. We were asked to use at least four different scraps of patterned paper, to use either yellow or circles and to scrap about either cooking, food or a celebration. Luckily I had a couple of Jubilee photos with me and came up with this

The photos are from the BBQ we had over the bank holiday and are of my SIL and the tortoise who wanted to get into the spirit! The scraps are from Crate Paper & MME. As yellow didn't really fit in with the photos I punched some circles and added buttons for embellishments.

Love & hugs
