Scrapbooking challenges

Sometimes I manage to combine more than one challenge, or at least take inspiration from them (more often than not as you know I actually forget to enter into the challenges anyway...let's see how I do today!)

I am a huge sketch fan and I loved this one from Stuck Sketches

I also went with inspiration from this palette over at Colour Me Scrappy

Whilst Shimelle is on maternity leave (.... have you seen the picture of her baby boy.... totally cute and adorable....huge congrats to you all xxx) anyway, whilst she is off there are guest bloggers setting us weekly challenges.  This week Relly asked us to scrap about a place.

So combining these ideas I came up with this page....

I love this house in the country that a family member lives in and it is in a wonderfully rural position with it's own huge field....sighhhhh it really is idyllic and I am lucky enough to have visited on several occasions.  i am grateful to have had the opportunity to use these photos together as I wasn't quite sure what to do with then initially.

I love challenges!
