Sketch Make Over!

As I said I wasn't happy with this layout so I gave it a little make over!!!

and here it is now!

Sherrise on gave me her honest opinion:- "My only suggestion is to change the title to Daddy's girls. As it is, it seems as if you are talking about your girls.. and there's a man in all three pictures, lol. I love that you have three pics of him at different ages with the girls, that is very cool!"

Thank you so much Sherrise, I quite like the layout now!!!!

Luckily I had 2 sheets of the same card stock, I measured and cut the second sheet to fit just underneath the stripy paper, I used the ribbon and brads to hid the join!!!!

I was in my LSS yesterday and spotted some alpha metal brads (made by Colorbok), got them and I used the D and G from that pack! I had some more metal alpha brads at home, (from the same company), which made up the rest of the letters!

The metal heart came off of one of the girls old school trousers and I just added a little ribbon!

TFL again lol

BBC - Someone that Inspires me is .....

In the scrap booking world there can be only one person! This lady is such an inspiration every time I visit her blog!!! She has creativity coming out of her fingertips!!! She is a design team member for numerous companies and websites, has been published quite a few times!

I am also privileged to consider her my friend! It all started from our LSS Paper Paradise! Where we both attended a Rusty Pickle Workshop! After attending the workshop I searched on Google for anything related to Mr Pickle and came across her blog!!!! I left some comments on her beautiful work!! In the meantime my DH and I were setting up a website for Paper Paradise and wanted to add customer and suppliers websites and blog links!!!

I e-mailed her and asked her if we could include her blog in the links and would she be interested in joining the forum attached to the web-site ...... the rest is history!

This lady is a genuine beautiful person on the inside and out. She recently started working in our LSS ...... her dream job (and everyone else who crafts, me included)!!!!

I would just like to finish off by saying Thank You Tracey, I am so delighted that we have met and become friends!

If you get the time please do stop by and visit her blog Running With Scissors, you won't be disappointed!
