Fabulous - Scrap Africa Sketch no.31

Hello Everyone

There is a new sketch challenge up on the Scrap Africa blog. Please pop along and have a look at Karin Zanders work, as well as the DT inspiration.

Here is the sketch.

Here is my take on it.

There is some journalling at the back of the page.  My brother was visiting in the middle of May and it was so nice to have him around.  He was holding "Pepper" when I took these photo's and was being a real card...saying "Smile Peps smile"..... !!!

The title is Fabulous, because I really miss him and it truly is fabulous when he visits and is around. This was also a fabulous day, because we took the Morris Minor and the MG out for a little Sunday drive. So we all had turns driving and also enjoying each others company! It was a fun, fun day!

Here is a pic of the mornings start.

Anyways, back to the page, I used Echo Park, Times and Seasons 2, with an Enmarc balloon chipboard.

I have to admit that I really struggled with this page! This was my 3rd attempt at this page.  The first 2 I tore up.  I have not done that in a very long time!

I embossed the title with a mix of white and copper embossing powders.

Perhaps you can play along? You have until the 14th June.

Thanks for popping by.
Have a super evening!
