Memories of You - My Creative Sketches April Challenge

Hi Everyone,

The April sketch challenge is up on the My Creative Sketch Blog, with a gorgeous prize to be won - prize can be seen below.  Pam (owner of My Creative Scrapbook) puts together some amazing kits - the one I worked with this month is the Limited Edition kit using Prima Marketing 'Divine' paper collection, and elements, which can be found 'HERE'.  It is exquisite. 

I adore the sketch Michelle has come up with this month, and scrapped a layout of my Mother with my brother Paul as a baby.  I cherish these memories, and photographs so much.  Those that are close to me know that I lost my brother in a car accident in April, 1990 - I miss him terribly.  In my LO, there is a hidden journal pocket, and to access, you just pull the bow up. I wrote about this particular day where all my cousins and myself, sat on my Grandmother's front lawn and had a picnic. It was a lot of fun!!

The only items I added to my kit, was distress ink, crochet cotton for the buttons, a couple of Green Tara petals, white paint to colour the Prima Alpha's, and the Memories title from the Silhouette Cameo.

Do hope you'll join us for this months sketch challenge...
Sandie
and the wonderful prize on offer this month....
