Sketch and Scrap - August

This is my third month as a member of the Sketch and Scrap Group run on UKS by two of my teamies Lisa and Heather

This month it was Shirley's turn to put up the sketch and I must say that I loved it from the minute I saw it. In fact I am fairly sure I will be using this sketch again.

I turned the sketch on its side for my layout which features a new statue erected in Seahouses down by the Harbour beside a new development of flats. All I have found out at the moment is that it was erected by the Developers but the next time I visit Seahouses I will be trying to find out more information so that I can add that to the layout.

I made the little lifebelt embellies by cutting out circles with my nestabilities and winding red embroidery thread round. I decided bunting wasnt quite right for the layout so made the little notched flags instead. I used papers from the Crate Paper Portrait collection pack I bought at the East Kilbride crop from Angel Crafts in their sale and which is fast becoming one of my favourite collections.

Cant wait to see everyone else's take on the sketch over the next couple of days then the new sketch will go up and it will be thinking caps on again.


  1. It's fabulous Suzy, loving the life belt embellies

  2. I think this is a stunning layout and I love the subject too - so unique! Great lateral thinking for the embellishments too - I also think its fantastic when their handmade.
