Friends




Sketchy Thursday is in partnership with scrap fit this week and have combined this wonderful sketch with the Scrap Fit challenge F is for Friends. And as I had just been out or a celebratory dinner with some of my closest friends, it is a match made for me!!! I have been keen to give scrap fit a try for a while so very glad these challenges overlap nicely!

I have flipped the sketch and used a digi sunburst pp from Little Dreamer Designs which is no longer available. I am really enjoying digi at the moment - I suspect it has a lot to do with the fact my normal scrappy supplies are piled high on my desk and the effort of sorting is too much at the moment....

We had the best night out, had the restaurant to ourselves and the waiter was hilarious. The food was yummy and well priced and the company was spectacular and amusing as usual. And I got presents - bonus!!

And I finally got to give Louise her present (she was sick for her birthday dinner so this has been sitting at home waiting...)
I would love to claim that I did all the stamping and attaching the key but it came like that (from Domayne). I did add the little handle and the hessian and string wrap and the little notebook - very pleased with that.

Just a reminder that there a few more days to enter Southern Girls blog hop- so many very cool prizes.

And Another freaking Scrappy Challenges Exotic Lo still has over a week to run so go check it out.
