On a roll......

Well, I'm on a roll this weekend.  I'm really enjoying getting messy again with my paints and inks so I hope it continues  :)

I played along with Scrapfriends this month.  I loved the sketch, and seeing as I have thousands of photos of our USA trip to scrap, this multi photo sketch was perfect.

Here's the sketch

And here's what I did with it

I've scrapped some photos of New York on this LO.  Including the popular tourist spots - Macy's, the steps where Carrie was going to walk up to marry Big (NY Library), the taxis, Central Park and Wall Street.

I've used Glitz Design papers, washi tapes, paints, inks and even a US $1 note.  I didn't use too many embellishments as I was happy with the "busy" look of the background.

That's it for now.  It's back to work tomorrow and not much time this week for anymore scrapping, with football training, basketball, athletics...the list goes on and on.

Thanks for stopping by.  Would love to know if anyone reads my blog, so please drop a note to say "hi".

Until next time, have a great week.
