Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an avid crafter; Scrapbooking, Cards, ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I play badminton and I have been Geocaching since 2009 and now and again Pokémon Go. Recently I got back to Ballroom and Latin Dancing too. I run a UK based on-line papercraft group.

Sketchbook365 - July Challenge

Horrah, I have managed to complete the Scrap365 July Challenge page in June!!! Their sketch this month is by Melenia Agapides and I just loved the torn and distressed upper patterned paper technique that she used. Had a bit of a job finding a double sided paper in my stash but fortunately this Kaisercraft paper called Guinevere from their Devonshire Collection did the job.
The Easter Bunny in the photo was the trinket included in my Easter Bouquet from Asda which just hopped into my trolly. I did post a photo of him back in April, but am only now getting round to scrapping him. I have enjoyed putting this page together roughly following the challenge sketch and even managed to slip in a second photo!

It is a lovely page BJ, I love the way you have ripped the paper and folded it back, such a great idea and the photo of the bunny egg is so sweet.

A lovely sunny page BJ. I really like the torn paper element - loved it when I saw it on your ATC. I can see the lace 'bunting' peeking out too! (No conversion to scrapping though - just admiring your work!!).
