Sketch of the Week

After a break from last weeks sketch  at Shimelle’s blog which was mostly due to lack of ink in the printer I’m back with a layout for this week.

Here’s the sketch


And here is my layout



I have used some black and white papers from my stash, Bazzil Just The Edge and some red K& Co Paper. The title is made with lovely red felt American Crafts alphabet stickers – almost too nice to use and then I’ve added a few die cut and punched shapes.

The photography is me with a Charlie Chaplin look alike. I noticed him on The South Bank in London when we visited the London Eye last year. He saw me taking his photo and posed and then beckoned me over to stand with him and  for my husband to take the photos. Martin was laughing so much he had trouble even taking the photo!

Hope you are having a good bank holiday weekend if you are in the UK.  Tomorrow, weather permitting I am planning to go to The Sweeps Festival at Rochester so I’m looking forward to taking some photos of the Morris Men!
