Here's One I Finished Earlier!

I knew that during December I would be crazy busy and that my craft stash gets put away each year to make room for a 'tree', so I kept a layout back to show you when there would be little activity here on my little blog.
It was done using this sketch that I designed for Bradfield Craft Club at the beginning of December.
 I only have Microsoft Publisher to design my sketches with so they are always very simple and minimal but I only use sketches as a spring board anyway, and everyone has their own style they can run with.

Anyway here is the layout that I came up with, the papers I used were inspired by the colour of the sunset in the photo. The sand writing was done by my eldest DD and then she took this gorgeous photo of me walking into the sea with the writing in the foreground. I'm so glad she has taken an interest in taking photo's too as she takes some beauty's.

The papers and the banner are all digital from different designers but go so well together.

My usual glitter title and these gorgeous felt stars are from a company called Stickopotamus.
Now that I have no more pages made I have to pop off and find some great challenges to enter as I love a good sketch challenge. So thanks for popping in and hopefully I will be back soon. 


  1. What a stunning photo and layout kerry, love how you have picked out the colours in that beautiful sunset to inspire your paper choice. LOVE it!!
