UKS Weekly Challenge - January Week 3

Suzy has set the challenge over on UKS this week with a lovely sketch for us to use...


This was the rest of the challenge;


I am well known for sewing on nearly all of my layouts so I would love you to use some sewing on your layout somewhere (either faux or real) for 5 points

I also love making an inky/painty splattery mess in general so please use paints and/or inks on your layout for 10 points

Finally as this week sees the commemoration of the birth of Robert Burns, Scotlands greatest poet I would like you to use a line/quote/title of a poem (this does not necessarily have to be a Burns poem) in your layout for your final 10 points


I decided to scrap a photo of Alex from her birthday a couple of weeks ago.  I have some hidden journalling behind the photo which explains the firework in the photo taken at our local Indian restaurant.  (We only asked for a sparkler!) It also tells how she managed to persuade her Dad to go for a curry which he really doesn't like!



The layout was made using another Sarah's Cards Kit from way back featuring Glitz - Love Nest.  It's more fussy than my usual pages but I like how it's turned out.  I misted the background paper to soften the colour and also a journalling spot behind the photo an the "14" (These are Pink Paislee mistables)  I added machine stitching and I used an Irish Blessing for my poem as I really likes the first line...

May love and laughter light your days, 
and warm your heart and home. 
May good and faithful friends be yours, 
wherever you may roam? 
May peace and plenty bless your world 
with joy that long endures. 
May all life's passing seasons 
bring the best to you and yours!

Thanks for looking :)

Really lovely layout - like your idea of misting the papers - I still have some papers in that collection that I am struggling to use so that might be the answer!!

Well done for a weekly challenge!!
