Friendly Challenge.

I met up with my dear friend Helen last Friday and we shared a day of crafting, chatting and fab food!
If you are a regular to my blog you are used to seeing these little challenges that Helen and I set ourselves and this month's friendly challenge was a sketch chosen by Helen.

Here is the sketch which was designed by the all round talented Rochelle Spears 

Here is my interpretation of the sketch using a photo of my little brother and his girlfriend.
The papers are all various American Crafts papers and I fussy cut the flowers for my embellishments.

I splattered some pretty salmon ink onto the background cardstock before adding my photo/papers with a sprinkling of sequins in a lovely light blue.

I stuck almost rigidly to the sketch as you can see, even down to a paper bow that I made from a template.  My first but definitely not my last!

Here is Helen's Spring Disney page with it's adorable papers and gorgeous photo. 
She recently bought a View Master die and couldn't wait to use it, looks great teamed up with a doily!

Helen's Cricut came in handy to create this wonderful embellishment of the two famous ducks!
She also made use of her favorite heart die using washi mounted on card instead of patterned paper. 

I loved these speech bubble paperclips and then Helen told me they were from Ikea! 
Another reason for a trip to my favorite shop soon!

We hope you enjoyed seeing the two different layouts from the one sketch and hope we have inspired you to challenge a crafty friend too.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
See you soon. xx
