Keeping the Best - Sketch #62

Hello there everyone....it's been a while, I know....but yay, I've scrapped (again!!...this not scrapping for a while seems to be coming a bit of a regular event! lol....oh well, such is life)

Anyways....it's a fairly bleak ol' Sunday afternoon here, so that's what got me motivated to scrap.
I thought I'd give sketch #62 at Keeping the Best a go, and here is what I've come up with....


Using a mix of scrap papers....My Minds Eye, October Afternoon....and I think there's some Basic Grey in there too.  Also some 2crafty chipboard...and have you noticed??...not a flower in sight!!
 
The background for my layout was inspired by 2 fabo scrappers
Sanna Lippert - for the stamped/template work (you can see her tutorial HERE on The Crafters Workshop blog)
And Chantelle Huizenga - who does this amazing white texture paste work, on white cardstock backgrounds (you can visit her blog HERE)
 
Thanks for the inspiration ladies!
 
ok, back to the sketch....which is here
 
 
 
And now for some close ups....
 
 
Some 2crafty chipboard circles & smalle pieces of French Lace Border ...along with my title
(which I've now realised is wrong....grrrr.  I had googled what type of ute this was at Deniliquin, and the Deneliquin tourism website said it was an EH.  Without even thinking, that's what I went for on my title....but now that I've photographed it etc, I'm thinking to myself, that is NOT an EH ute....it is more like an FB or an EK.  Oh well, easily enough to change it....but I couldn't be bothered rephotographing it, so you'll just have to pretend it says EK...lol)
 

Another 2crafty circle....with my journaling in the centre
 

Here you can get a better look at the template/stamping work inspired by Sanna...and the white on white texture work inspired by Chantelle
 

A few buttons....including a Flair
 

And again....some more template/texture work
 
Pics are from our road trip returning home from the Great Ocean Road, for an overnight stop at Deneliquin.
OMG was it HOT there....it was about 43 degrees, and silly us are wandering around doing the touristy thing...lol.  This old beaten up ute was covered in thousands of mosaic tiles and the reason for a ute?  Because Deniliquin is home to the annual Ute Muster, of course!
 
Ok, enough rambling from me :)
Thanks for dropping by.... xx
