Scrap Africa sketch challenge No. 26

Hi there lovelies :)
 
Just quickly popping in to share a layout I created for this months sketch challenge over at Scrap Africa.  The sketch was created by Denise van Deventer, and it is a fabulous one!
 
 
Here is what I've created.....

Using some REALLY REALLY old Basic Grey & Fancy Pants papers, along with some book paper.  A bit of background work happening too, but may not be so noticeable in this pic!
 
 
Here is Denise's sketch, which I have rotated 90deg clockwise
 
 
 
 
A few close ups....

Small cluster at the bottom left of photos....with some stamping underneath it. And you can see the background work a bit better here....I've added some green misting to the busy background paper to tie in with the green leaves that are somehow still green & on the tree, considering the colour of the ones on the footpath - only in Ireland! lol
 
 

My title...with a bit of a play on words of the Molly Malone song...I'm such a dork!  :D
 
 

A larger cluster at the top right of photos - love those Kaisercraft stamped leaves! <3
 
 

Some 2Crafty chipboard tucked in behind the photos and inked to suit
the colourings of the photos & page.
 
 

And an overall view....pics were taken while walking alongside the Liffey in Dublin on the first day we arrived at the end of September last year, which was such a glorious autumn's day :)
 
 
Thanks so much for visiting today :)
And a huge thank you to those who regularly visit & leave me such wonderful comments....even though I rarely get the time to visit your own blogs - which I always feel really bad about! 
But I am hoping to have the time to visit real soon....fingers crossed!!!
 
Until next time, take care & happy scrapping....xx
