Getaway!

Hello Bloggy Friends,

We just got back yesterday from our trip to beautiful Krakow - we fell in love with the place and the people and I have come home with my head stuffed full of memories and images which will probably inspire a few art journal pages. More about that over the next couple of weeks :o)

As always, I couldn't wait to get into my craft room this morning. Today is the deadline for this month's challenge over at GoGoGetaway. This time, Giselle set us a sketch challenge -


I decided to turn the sketch 90 degrees clockwise and flip it vertically ...


The papers I used were from my latest Quirky Kit, mostly the Carousel collection by Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper. The bright pastel doilies were from the kit too, along with the ticket (from a Pretty Little Studio pack I think). The clouds, sun and raindrops were diecut from white cardstock (dies from China via Ali Express) - I used my Prismacolour pencils to colour them in. And finally the title is a chipboard sticker from a lovely set which was a thankyou gift at the last GoGo retreat I went to earlier this year.

The story behind these photos of my good friend Trina and Yours Truly is that we were on a day trip to Cromer on the train (was meant to be Sheringham but I got confused and bought tickets to the wrong town but we had lovely day anyway). One minute, the sun was shining and we were paddling in the sea, the next the heavens opened and we were running for the train, soaking wet but laughing our head off! What a fabulous day!! :o)

Thanks for popping in to see me today, lots of crafty catching up to do so I'll be back very soon!

Have a wonderful creative week my arty-farty friends!
