Sketch Challenge

Nicki and I run a monthly crop here in Solihull and we've started setting a layout challenge each month.  These have normally been some sort of sketch.  So I thought I'd share this month's sketch with you all.  It would be so lovely if some of you would join in with the challenge.  I'm sure I'll be able to find a small RAK for one lucky participant.  So if you're up for a little challenge here goes:

I've used one large photo for my layout, but I'm sure you could squeeze in some smaller ones.

I took this photo at a recent trip to an openair museum.  I found this old barn door and got Jacob to pose.  It struck me that he only had a week to go before his 10th Birthday (today).  He just looked so grown up.  I've no idea how that happened so quickly!

I got to use some of my favourite embellishments which have been 'rusted' using Vintage photo distress powder.

You can of course use any of your own embellishments if you're taking part in the challenge.  I hope that you do.  Just upload it to your blog and post a comment here.  I'll pick a winner at the end of June (assuming I'm not moving house).  I'll go and find some candy.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  Thanks for popping in.
