Kraft Plus August Challenge

Hello again fellow paper lovers! Sandra and the team from Kraft Plus Challenges set a very interesting Challenge this month. When I first looked at the inspo board I really didn't think I would enter this time around. But after some consideration I decided that I shouldn't let it daunt me so here is my take...



After making a complete mess of my first attempt and having to completely start over, this is the finished layout.


The journalling reads "These lovely palm tress in Barcelona really captured my eye until I noticed they were guarding a magnificent frescoed wall".  We were escaping the heat and  having a sneaky drink in a cute little bar just near the Palau de la Musica, when I found myself staring at these trees. It took my mind a few minutes to register that the building behind them was covered in some amazing paintings. Below is a photo I took of the Palau de la Musica Catalan, just opposite the bar.


Thank you once again for looking xx

Stuck?! Sketches August Challenge

Just a quick post today for my entry in the current challenge over at STUCK?!  I've been down with  a strain of the Flu for the last week and it's really knocked me around. It's frustrating to have all this time off work and no energy to play in my craft room :( anyway today is a better day and I think I've turned the corner and the new sketch was beckoning me.



So here is my take:



I think it's self-explanatory. I'm a bit pleased with myself that I actually remembered to leave space for journalling! That's new for me :D



Thanks for looking xx
