This is Us Layout - September Sketch - My Creative Sketches

The new sketch is up at My Creative Sketches for September, with a fabulous prize to be won for a random winner.  You can find all the entry details 'HERE', and the sketch below. 

For my interpretation of the sketch, I turned the sketch on its side for something different, and added in an extra photograph at one of the focal points.  It was a fun sketch!!

The photographs are of me and my brother at a young age.  Mum used to take photographs of us in this one part of her flower garden all the time - it must have been a favourite place for her.  Later as we are growing older, a lot more flowers and shrubs can be found in the photographs.  My parent's built this house, so I guess at this point the flower garden was new.

I used the My Creative Scrapbook, September, Limited Edition Kit to create the layout with - full of all sorts of wonderful products, and fabulous embellishments.  You can find all the details of the Limited Edition Kit 'HERE'.
I hope you will come and join in the fun of the My Creative Sketches challenge this month!!

Happy Creating
Sandie

Great take on the sketch Sandie! love the bold colours and the accordion blooms are so so pretty! Can so relate to mum taking piccies in the same spot in our garden. Visited our old neighbourhood this summer. Seeing the saplings of my childhood grown into massive trees made me think of all the years that have passed. Have a wonderful week sweetie! xoxo
