My Sweet Life

Here's my DT layout for My Creative Sketches' February Sketch. My younger DD just loves to go prawning, and recently spent a lovely afternoon with her sister, cousins and friends at her usual prawning haunt. They didn't catch that many prawns, but had loads of fun just the same. Given that this is one of her favourite activities at this stage in her life, I just had to capture it in a layout, and this month's MCS sketch provided the perfect opportunity for it.

I used papers from Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden collection for this layout, as I wanted something with a "nature" feel to it. The flowers are from Prima, and I added some tarnished-looking metal embellishments which I found among my stash, to give the layout a somewhat vintage look, harking back to the "kampung" days of old.

Here's the lovely sketch by Kim Keane.

So, head on over to the MCS blog to get an eyeful of the gorgeous prize up for grabs this month, and come play along with us!
