Sketchbook 365 Challenge.

Hi fellow scrappers and welcome to my little corner. I have found time to complete the challenge for Sketchbook 365 this month.
Below is the sketch which as you can see has dreaded circles in it! I don't know what it is about circles but when I see them in a sketch I usually steer clear. But if I am to over come my fear of scrapping circles (irrational though it is) I must face it head on!!!

I recently found this photo of my middle daughter taken in 2006 and just loved the fact that she wasn't posing, I must have just called her name whilst she had stopped to look at something.
I love theses papers - Crate Paper - Acorn Avenue, not only are they vibrant and colourful but they have a sheet in the range (Almond Grove) that has bold flowers on it, perfect for me and my scissors!
I recently experimented on making my own printable banner alphabet in MS Publisher and in this photo you can see the pink version, I think I made about seven different colour ways.

Another frugal scrapper thing I make is these quote strips in Word with whatever quote I like and then print them off on sheets of white cardstock. One day I might get around to making them in colour but white goes with most of my pages so I haven't felt in was urgent.
Ok back to the nitty-gritty (is this just an English saying?) the sketch challenge over at Sketchbook 365 is open until 10th October 11pm GMT and you can find all the details and the DT's interpretation of the sketch HERE.
Thank you so much for putting up with my ramblings and all the lovely comments you have left lately, I really appreciate every single one!
Hugs, Kerry. xx
