Gonna Trouble the Water.........(and a giveaway!!)

I'm dutifully still scrapping away a pile of photos from our beach holiday back in June. I think when I printed them all off I had ideas of using a lot of them in a mini-album about the trip. But I found I've used most of them up by now on pages!

My challenge last week at was a "Fetch a Sketch" so I tested my photoshop skills to the limit as I designed this sketch. When in doubt.... always go with a grid I say :-)

Except I had to find some interesting spots to include all the journaling I wanted to add..... so around the periphery and spilling over onto the photo it went!

The theme is "Wet 'n' Wild" so I challenge you to not only follow the sketch but to include some kind of 'splashing' onto your page. I used the fussy-cut paper splash, and of course my usual splatter of mists along with the photos of Moodles splashing around (rather tentively) in the water.

I used the happy bright vintage colours in Cosmo Cricket's Salt Air collection - it matched my photos perfectly. The sketch challenge doesn't end until November 30th so there's still plenty of time to enter. Find all the details here.

Supplies Used:

Now, onto a totally different (but equally gorgeous) colour scheme is the delightful kit that we're offering as a GIVEAWAY on the Once Upon a Sketch blog. It looks a little something like this.....
