Scrapbookit Sketch Challenge

There is nothing like entering a competition right at the last minute! I feel like I am back at school sitting up to all hours getting an essay finished to hand in in the morning......but........this is so much more fun!
I have just completed my interpretation of the March Sketch from the Scrapbookit Blog
I am not totally sure about working with sketches however I believe you interpret and create the layout bearing some resemblance to the sketch. I could be totally wrong and there may be heaps of unwritten rules but I have had a go anyway. Hey.....I have completed yet another layout for the album and I like it....I think that is the most important. Check out my entry......(if you want to compare it to the sketch head over to the Scrapbookit Blog).






Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think about my layout.
Until next time,
Mel

Nearly one month........since I last posted something here. I am so slack. The last post Feb 22 was seriously the last lot of scrapbooking I had done until last Friday night. Two gorgeous ladies, Liz and Cheryl, and I got together for a wonderful night of fun and plenty of scrapping (that was once we caught up on the gossip in each others lives!)
I was very keen to complete a layout for Anna's Craft Cupboard Sketch of the Month competition. To my amazement, I actually got it complete.....well just the Kindy Glitz had to go on at home.
Very excitedly I uploaded it to the gallery and now wait and see if I am the random winner. Fingers crossed!

The layout is of my gorgeous friend, Nikki and I at the Scrapbookit 2008 Retreat. Nikki is really a true inspiration to me. Not only does she inspire me in the scrapping world but as a Mum too! Check out her new blog "Scraps of Me" - she is amazing!
Just before I head off.....keep us in your thoughts and prayers. Last week I lost my Poppy. Am heading off to the funeral, in the Hunter Valley. A great life at the age of nearly 90 but it is never easy to accept. Love you heaps Pop!
Until next time,
