Julie's Sketch

Last week, the super talented and witty Julie posted a sketch she'd drawn. There was something about the sketch that drew me in {forgive the unintentional pun}, apart from the undeniable fact that it was drawn super neatly.
Late this morning, instead of doing the ironing and putting clean bedding on our bed, I sat down at my desk and found some photos and paper.  I haven't really scrapped anything since my FiL died, but the timing felt right today.
Of course, my layout looks nowhere near Julie's.
It doesn't have to.
It's a completed page and I feel better for having done it.
Now, where's that clean bedding ...

Oh Ruth so, so many things about this make me happy!

That sweet little face for one plus the fact you avoided housework to use my sketch. I feel extra proud of that!

And that you felt the time was right to do a little creating. xx

Thank you so much for sharing this. [I'll go and pin it now]

I love the use of colour on this layout and placement. Even with all the layers, it still looks uncluttered. Lovely photographs.
