May Sketch Challenge #3 & Last Weeks Winner

Well it is Friday again and we have a new sketch for you.  This week's sketch has more of a clustered effect with space for three photos but of course you can use these spots for other things such as patterened paper, extra journaling or whatever. 
And here is my interpretation of this sketch.  It is a layout featuring my daughter and her friend receiving their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh's Award.  The photographs are not brilliant quality but I wanted to include them in a layout to mark their achievement.   I have included the footprint ribbon and bark print paper to represent the expedition that they had to do for their award and there are some fun stickers and sayings 'congrats', 'good for you' and 'you deserve a pat on the back' which add a fun element.

I am also delighted to announce the winner of last week's sketch challenge.  It is Cath West with this sweet layout of her daughter's visit to the Farm; such lovely photos.  Cath has used the 'Sweet Threads' Kit and the colours in the papers work so well with the photos.  It is a lovely layout Cath, thank you for entering the competition and your prize of the Prima 'Nature Garden' papers will be sent off to you.

Deb sent me through this layout from an album that she is making for her parents Golden Wedding Anniversary which she says is from last week's sketch also.  It is really interesting to see the different take on it and that is why sketches are so great because sometimes they can just act as a springboard to get you started.  These are such lovely photos and I am sure Deb's parents will be thrilled.

Happy Crafting!
