Kraft it up - August challenge

This month at Kraft it up we had a challenging sketch to have a go at....I find sketches fun to use and turn the design around or even flip them...

Here is my Kraft it up layout of our family outing at Minyon Falls Northern NSW. These photos were taken by a very dear friend Alz. We had such a fun day exploring so many sites and showing Alz the country side surrounding Lismore.

Here is the sketch challenge.....

I must confess I got a little carried away with this sketch and did another layout using the same sketch..

You will have seen these pics before but I think they are so cute that you will probably see them a few more times yet...lol. Also one of my favorite scrappers Lou Nelson who I am inspired by, and have been wanting to have a go at Doodling using the white Gel pen to fill in spots and the crumple Tissue paper which I learnt in one of her classes in Brissy Craft convention. (Thankyou Lou xx :) )

Doodling inspired by Lou Nelson :)

Using the tissue paper inspired by the talented Lou Nelson :)

Thankyou for taking the time to stop by and have a look
enjoy your day
