It started with a sketch !!

My new project started with a sketch from Sketches in Thyme. Here it is...

but it ended up like this...

First I thought I would turn the sketch upside down. I knew which pictures I was going to use, I just couldn't edit them the way I wanted ! I wanted three small pictures under the Olives sign but I just couldn't figure out how to do it ! I used Picassa so if anybody has got any tips on how to create your own collage, then please help me !!.
The rest, well, apart from a few extra layers and the little pictures on the top left is quite similar to the sketch,  hmm, if you look quickly !
Does this ever happen to you, you start with an idea and it ends up completely different to what you had originally planed? I still like it, it just doesn't look one bit like what I had in my head !

Busy making little presents for Amelie's party at the moment, butterflies and glitter, lots of glitter !!

Have a good week,



  1. Yeah, this happens to me. I've had a layout sitting on my desk for a week and have finally rotated it and now I'm liking it much more. Love this layout BTW! Fun pictures and I like all the colors and torn edges!
