A Couple of Sketches from Sketchy Thursdays.....

Hello everyone, I hope you're all having a good week, when I went to Bromsgrove Craopaganza on Saturday as well as doing the classes I took two Sketchy Thursday sketches to do and actually managed to get two LO's finished.
Here's the first LO using this week's sketch.

Sketch 11.03


I used some leftover scraps from The Girls Paperie and cut out a doily using Cheery Lyn's French Pastry die, the misting is actually done with the Stampin'Up Colour Spritzer Tool and a brush marker pen, it is so much less messy than a spray and easier to control. I also used the splodge stamp from SU French Foliage stamp set. I can't remember what Jodie and I were laughing at but Mick and Paige were looking at us gone out !!!!



This LO was also using The Girl Paperie, I love the simplicity of this sketch and stuck too the bare minimum. We went to Blist Hill Victorian Christmas one year and Mick was accosted by the Two Ugly Sisters, by the look of the photo he seem's quite happy to be chatted up by those two lovely 'ladies', lol.

Sketch 10.27

I've just got back from a Cupcake Workshop with Afternoon Tea. I went with  Libby and Julie, it was a fun afternoon learning how to decorate cupcakes using diferent icings and embellishments we then had afternoon tea with homemade cakes all served on vintage style china, so much fun !!!! I've got lots of photo's to share but here's a little sneak peek.



Thanks for looking...........

such very pretty layouts. I can't believe that doily at the top is a die cut. I might have to look out for that one. Looks gorgeous. Great sketches
