Sizergh Castle

This bank holiday has been a bit of a wash out up here in the North West - lots of rain and cold wind!  So what better to do than some clearing out of cupboards, book shelves and desks (in both kids rooms) and a little scrapbooking?  At least I have a sense of achievement!

So on Saturday I completed the challenge  #1 in the UKScrappers Summer Scrapbooking Challenge which was to "Lets get started with a sketch"...


As per usual the two photos I wanted to use were portrait and landscape (I never seem to think about this when taking the pictures!) so I cut them both down so they would work with the sketch.  

I'm on a mission to use up my Gossamer Blue kits so carried on scrapping with the same kit as my last few pages...


Once again I've used embellishments from my own stash as the kit ones were pretty much all gone...


Plus some gorgeous new flair from A flair for buttons and some bits from my "For goodness sake use me up" pile...


Back soon with the final page from this kit.  Hope you've had a lovely bank holiday weekend wherever you are and that the weather has been kinder to you!

Great take on the sketch and some fun photos. We were quite a bit further North than you this BH weekend and had glorious sunshine. Mum said it was pouring down South!

I always plan crafting for bank holiday weekends as the weather is always not great LOL. Really lovely layout and well done for adapting the photos - I frequently do the same so am always on the lookout for sketches to use with one portrait and one landscape.
