Scrap Friends Sketch Challenge #9

Well hello everyone, it's been a while hasn't it!!

We have been away on holidays and have returned just in time for the first day of school which was scheduled for tomorrow however with this terrible weather the school has closed and we plan to go back on Wednesday, so yet another day off for me.  I don't mind so much, it is just Caitlin who seems forever bored!!

I have had some time over the rainy weekend to scrap - yeahh!! and I thought I would have a go at the current Scrap Friends sketch, my first as an entrant since my DT term finished :)  I found this one a little tricky with all the zig zags down the bottom there!

Here is my take:  I have created the zig zags with some kraft paper cut into strips and then washi tape added.  I then sewed in place and roughed up the edges.  I have also used some Satin seam binding to create the other row of zig zags and some twine all available from Craft Queen.

Paper is Crate paper and Authentic ohh yes and one sheet of Prima.   Flowers are Manor House, Prima and a couple of "odd bods" LOL - trying to use up some of my stash of older bits and bobs.

You may notice that I have actually mounted my photo on top of a larger one...I have seen a lot of girls do something similar to this - especially with the white edges on their photos, I thought I'd give it a little whirl.  I also used some vellum, yeah, vellum I had from years ago, I heard it's making a come back -  not sure how I feel about that but I like how it turned out here :) and yes, that's my sister, can you tell???

My thoughts and prayers are with all the families affected by the terrible weather in Qld and NSW - Stay safe everyone!!

Hi Gwen I hope you have had a good holiday.. this layout looks wonderful.. I love all the flowers in your cluster, and all the layers too.. We have had a fair bit of rain here, and our creek gave me a bit of a fright, it came up but no where near what it did in January 2011, it is going down now but the water from here goes into the lockyer creek which is going into the brisbane river which unfortunately is going to cause flooding in Brisbane yet again.. so I too think of them and the losses they will have again.. so take care too!!
