Thursday Thoughts

Today I'm playing at Let's Get Sketchy so it's a scrapbook page.

I took a break from scrapping wedding pics and went back to my old favourite subject - one of my grandsons As he's the only one who lives close by and I look after him a couple of days each week he tends to get the lion's share of photos and pages.

I started with some green background paper from Shimelle's Box of Crayons, then pretty much all the other papers, stickers and cards were from the same collection. It's such a fun and bright collection and seemed to match the bright colours of his shirt and all the grass.

As my husband plays golf and is always watching it on television I bought this cheap little golf set from my local Co-op and then watched in fascination as he tried to balance his golf ball on the tee borrowed from Grandad's bag. Fine motor skill development without even knowing it!

Although the sketch was an easy one to follow circles always challenge me. To create them I drew round the inside and outside of a circular die with a white gelly pen. A few trios of enamel dots and I was done.

Papers, & stickers: AC Shimelle, Box of Crayons
Embellishments: enamel dots, gelly pen from my stash

Thanks so much for your time today, it's been fabulous to have you visit my blog.

And keep crafting!
