I hope you have a weekend of fun planned. We have a new six month old kitten called Demi and my girls are quite happy following her around trying to play with her, so our weekend will be quiet but fun! I'm sure you will see a page with Demi staring soon!

In the mean time I have a page to show you that I created for the Skissedilla challenge blog sketch #209.

Here is the sketch for this week.
My page shows my youngest daughter some years ago at a butterfly house, there were such fantastic specimens, is was incredible and my girls were in awe of the fact that the butterflies would just land on them.
I started off with my background paper (Jillibean Soup) added ink and paint splashes and then cut out some circles, backed them with Pebbles paper from the Family Ties line (my fav this year so far) and then doodled around the edges of the circles.
Whilst cutting out the circles with a cheap and nasty circle cutter I have decided I need a new and reliable one so if you have any suggestions they would be gratefully received!
Using my favourite butterfly stamp (Jenny Bowlin) I stamped 2 images onto more of the patterned Pebbles paper.
This is my first chance at entering a layout in the Skissedilla challenges as they are weekly and sometimes I just don't get time (sigh). I have got this one in with only a day to spare too. (phew)!
All the details of this sketch challenge can be found over HERE.


  1. This is a lovely layout! I love what you have done with the sketch! I found that if I use a piece of foil on my punches - sometimes it sharpens the punch. If that doesn't solve your issue - I have been pleased with my Creative Memories Circle punches. I have had them forever.

  2. Love your fresh and funny page! Thank you for playing with us at Skissedilla!
