Remembrance Sunday and crafty weekend.

On Friday I was lucky to go to London with a friend to visit the Country Living Christmas Show. It was a really good day out that gave me a lot of inspiration. Most of the stuff for sale was very expensive but gave e millions of ideas for Christmas decorations. I didn't buy much but I came across this little store with extremely cute badges. The store holdm, Siobhan Jordan is a very talented artist, you can check her blog on siobhanjordan.blogspot.com and I really like her style. I have used one of her badges on a page already, you can see it in the  middle of this lay out that I made for Sketchy Thursdays.

This was the original sketch...

I have done a page similar a few weeks ago and liked it a lot so decided to copy myself !!

I also managed to make another lay out for Sketch in Thymes. I had to flip the sketch to fit my horizontal pictures but I like the simplicity or the end result.The colours are really bright but then again, these little Moshi Monsters are really bright too.

 and this was the original sketch if you fancy having a go.

Sunday was remembrance Sunday here. It is always emotional and I always struggle to keep my emotions in check but this weekend we went to our local memorial and the ceremony was lovely. Lots of local Brownies and Cubs and Rainbows were there and it was uplifting to see all the children paying their respect and behaving so well. It is tradition to wear poppies and Amelie got the idea to put them in her hair. I am not sure it is the thing to do really but they did look cute !!

I hope you have a good week. I have received lots of goodies this weekend so I hope I will be able to spend some crafty time. Although, very exciting, the new Twilight Film is coming out and I am going to see it on Thursday at midnight so should try to get some good night sleep beforehand !!
