This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Wonderful - ScrapFriends Nov Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone

Happy Monday and hope you had a super day!

We are having another African thunderstorm, with lightning, rain and thunder, but it's warm and humid, so hopefully by morning everything will be fresh and clean again.

I played along with the ScrapFriends challenge here this month and used some of my The Avenues Collection.
It really is a stunning collection.

Here's my take on it.

This photo was just perfect for these papers! We had stayed at a French little hotel, down at the coast and so these papers were just the thing.

I used a Prima stencil for the cobbled wall effect and some Prima flowers and stamens.

I also played with my gelato's and added a watercolour effect beneath the central feature.

Thanks so much for stopping by to have a look.
Hope you have a super evening!
