Crop Day !

What a lovely I have just had.
Today was our local crop in the village hall. About 14 ladies doing crafty things ranging from painting to cross stitching, card making and scrapbooking. One lovely coffee and walnut cake, dozens of chocolate cookies and lots and lots of cups of teas !! Thank you all of you, I have had a very relaxing day !

I did manage to make two layouts ( which is good for me !! I am rather slow !! ) but I haven't had a chance to take any pictures yet so I thought I would show you something that I made last night instead ! I really like to scrap pictures that I have just taken and that are still very fresh in my memory so I thought I would use the pictures I took of Mad March Hair Day and try to enter the Sketchy Thursday challenge. I like the sketch but I especially like my friend's Lisa's interpretation of it ! ( if you have never seen Lisa's work, go and visit her blog at scrappy fairies, she is amazing !! ) So anyway, I took the sketch and turned it over...( like Lisa !! )

Here is the sketch...

And here is my version...

I tried to be as messy as I could to reflect the MAD. I find it really hard not to put the pictures straight and use paint randomly but I like the result, and the pictures really make me laugh.

I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend. Half Marathon day here where I live so we will be spending the day outside, handing out sweets to the brave runners who need an extra little help !! ( well that is if the kids don't eat them all before the runners arrive !! )

Take care
