Memories - April Sketch - The Scrapbook Store

The April sketch challenge is up on The Scrapbook Store Gallery!  Come join in the fun of being creative with this fabulous sketch....all you have to do is enter the Gallery, upload for a chance of winning a fabulous prize of a $40 shop voucher with free postage.

I used the Kaisercraft, 75 cents Paper Collection and sticker elements for my layout.  Texture was created using a Prima stencil and texture paste, along with  texture stamps from Bo Bunny.


Green Tara flowers, and foliage from my lace stash.  
 Just love the above butterflies which was fussy cut from the paper collection..
 The photograph is of my Mum on her wedding day, with my Great Grandma giving her blessings for the marriage. Not sure where that piece of fluff came from in the photo LOL
 Thanks for calling into visit...
Enjoy your day
Sandie

WOW....Sandie, you are the greatest at scrapbooking...a true master!!!!
You constantly amaze me with your talent and creativity.
I haven't had access to the Internet for the past few days and I'm once again trying to catch up. This is getting ridiculous...this time the fault was with my wireless router!
On to your next post!
