Lovely weekend..

At home trying to catch up on cleaning and seeing friends. I also managed to make a page for Sketchy Thursdays. I can't believe it is the last challenge. These ladies have been so good to me. I still remember the first time I entered one of their challenges and they didn't pick me. I was so upset !! How could they not like me !! What a lesson that was. But I decided to try again and again. Their sketches have always inspired me and I was very lucky to be chosen as a favourite a few times and these times, I felt very honoured and proud. It is a real shame they are stopping but I would love to finish on a high so I have made an extra special page, including all the skills I have learnt while working on the past sketches. I have used paint and ink, stamps and stickers, ribbons and masking tape, pens and sewing. I really love the result and I hope they do to. But, hey, this time I won't feel sad if I don't get picked, I will just feel sad to say goodbye to these wonderful ladies who always took time to write a little word on your blog. So good luck ladies and hopefully see you soon.

Here was the sketch:
1.12 sketch

And here is my page...

I especially like the masking tapes that my dear lovely beautiful kind and generous sister !! bought me for Christmas and the little badge I got a while ago.

I also came across this new challenge site called Craft Origine. I think that they have just started but I like them already. This was their sketch.

And I thought Harry's page worked a treat so I have sent it to them. I hope they like it too !!

And while I am at it, Scrapbookers Anonymous and the talented Lea are challenging you to use masking so I think I will send them my page too !!

 Take care everyone.
