scrapbooking by the sea

every now and then i like to go through my non-su paper stash and play with it
what? you buy non-su paper?!!
ssssssssssssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhh don't tell anyone-ok?
because it is all soooo pretty :>

so it was friday night and hubby was out and the kids were watching a movie in the lounge so i managed to get a hour to myself-woohoo!!! so i got out some photos and checked out the sketch challenges on the web to get some inspiration.

lo and behold just add ink has one this week perfect for my 3 photos

 i used buttons and wool for some embellishments
i black embossed my die cut letters for my heading

cheers ears

You created this in an HOUR, Clare?? Wow - I'm impressed! Love the black-embossed letters for the title, and I really like how you've used the JAI sketch for your layout. Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week.
