My First Solo Challenge on UK Scrappers

Hello, this week Im hosting my first solo challenge on UKS.

I love doing the weekly challenges and have helped host before as part of my Team and crop group.

I wanted to use a sketch as they are great for kick starting a.sluggish mojo.  I also wanted folks to use some paint or ink as I love getting messy.  I sew on a huge proportion of my layouts so sewing was a given.  Finally as this week sees the remembrance of the birth if Scotland's greatest poet, Robert Burns I asked that a either a title or a quote from a poem, not necessarily a Burns One was used.

Heres the sketch I used which I found whilst wandering around pinterest.  The photo is of myself and four of my scrapping friends and UKS teamies at Lochhouse Farm on one of our twice yearly visits there.  My quote is from the Burns poem, Green grow the rashes o, and reses "Auld nature swears, the lovely dears, with every hour that passes o, her prenticed han' she try'd on Man, and then she made the lasses o" which basically translated from the Scots says that nature was practising when she made men but perfected it When she made women.
