Whilst I was away at the Retreat I also took part in the sketch challenge which Anna set. As the founder of Pencillines Anna came up with a great sketch and as regular readers of my blog will know, I love to base a layout on a sketch!
I used loads of bits and pieces from my May Sarah's Cards kit and was really pleased with the layout I came up with. I hand stitched the top of the layout, which took ages! I finally finished it at 11pm on the Saturday - I was determined to do it before I went to bed! The photos were taken of my nieces a couple of years ago when we went to the park on Hugh's birthday. We had gone for a stroll to walk down the large dinner and when we arrived the icecream van was there - well, the children wanted one so what could we do!
