I had a slight itch...

.......and I just had to scratch it

I'm not sure, but perhaps todays weather had something to do with bringing on said itch. 
It's been about 6 weeks since I've scrapped, and during that time I've not had the urge to scrap.  Not.even.once.  And I can't say that I've missed it either.....Weird, huh?

But today, that little incling of an itch was there....so with miserable weather & not much else to do (as reading all the fine print & trying to understand everything with hiring a car in Ireland was starting to do my head in!!!)...I thought I'd best move onto something else & scratch that itch! lol

The sketch over at Skissedilla really tickled my fancy...errrr itch, so that is what I went with, and here is what I came up with...........


Using PP from the Prima Sunrise-Sunset collection for my background....although it looks nothing like the original piece.  Lots of misting & stamping on there.

Apologies for the bad photos....miserable weather tends to do that when taking photos indoors :-/


Here is the sketch over at Skissedilla - sketch #212




And now for some close ups

Diecut leaves & flowers (the 2 larger ones)...
and a piece of 2crafty chipboard, "Lace Square", that I cut in half and you can see it just
 popping out from under the photo too


Title & layers under the photos



And here's the other half of the 2crafty "Lace Square"



My journaling about our Sunday drive :)



And that's it folks.
Who knows when I will scrap again....could be tomorrow or perhaps another 6 weeks time.
Just don't go holding your breath....lol

Enjoy your weekend peeps & thanks for popping by...xx
(I'm hoping to spend some time tonight visiting my fav blogs....it's long overdue!)

Amazing page! So glad you scratched that itch!! When we went away for a month I didn't miss scrapbooking at all either - everyone always makes you feel guilty about that - but honestly there are loads of things I love that I sometimes take a break from :)

Thanks for the love, love...just back from VIC...loved your 'before' & 'after' feature in SBM...FABULOUS....& me? Well, I think you should Lay Off more often if this is the result. Huh! 6 weeks off = a Stunner of a page....nothing more to say except I'd give you first prize:):):) Good luck with the Irish...what can I say....it's the IRISH... I can say that, having a grandmother from there!!!!!
