Sisters - Scrap Africa Sketch Challenge No 18

Hello Friends,

Oh me, oh my, so when they call it a challenge, they mean it's a challenge. The sketch at Scrap Africa added some grey to my already grey hair. I now added more floppy backgrounds to my already filled to capacity file of floppy backgrounds.

The photo I used is one of me and my two sisters taken on my wedding day. Growing up we three could bicker with the best of them, but thankfully we all grew out of that and became the best friends.

Here is the sketch over at Scrap Africa

I used some Kaisercraft 12x12 papers and a 6x6 paper pad from the Le Chateau range - this is one of my favorite collections by Kaisercraft.

The chipboard is from Celebr8 and the flowers is from Petaloo. The background of the paper has some Walnut Distress Ink and I used a template cut with my Silhouette. The ink on the background is some of Mr Huuey's and also some Perfect Pearl Heirloom Gold.

This is what happens on a lay-out when the ink one splats does not splat where you aim. You get to stick pretty pieces of paper on top of the flop and voila - all fixed!!

A close-up view of the banner, I used some tiny stick on pearls on the banner but they seem to disappear on the photo.

 The chippies were covered with Walnut Distress Stain, spritzed with water and dried, this is not very visible but left the chipboard with a light watermark of colour.

This is the quote on my lay-out. I simply love this quote - it says it all in our sisterly relationship.

Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate it. Please join the challenge over at Scrap Africa - it is great fun, and there is nothing to get the mojo going like a challenge.

When someone you love becomes a memory,
the memory becomes a treasure.

Till next time,
