Thursday's a bit sketchy...

Thursday, October 7, 2010

My goodness the week is flying by so quickly and Thursday is upon us already... which brings with it the Pebbles Sketchy Thursday where a couple of DT members (including myself) were asked to create a layout using a really fun sketch designed by Valerie Salmon.
Here's my take on the challenge...
My son and his tractor... not a day goes by where he hasn't pedalled a million miles around the verandah and all over the yard. I decided to use the Pebbles Tree House collection as it has a real whimsical feel with the cute little bird-houses and I really wanted to create a cute country scene to complement the photo. More quilling for the leaves, just love this technique at the moment!
Got to have just a little bit of stitching somewhere on my layout. One of these days I'm going to find my sewing machine and drag it out so that I can zip around layouts with ease, but for now I will stick to the the hand stitching which I find quite relaxing, unless it is late at night and I stick the needle through my finger... groan! Just love the Pebbles Glitter Candy Dots, they made great apples for my tree!
From farm to you...
