Over on UKS my team have organised a weekly scrap lift challenge. So here is the first weeks challenge based on a sketch by Jana Eubank, her sketch blog is here. Due to time restraints (dam you work) and still recovering from my trip (folding up my Baywatch swimsuit ready for next year Sandra), it has taken me all week. I used some October Afternoon papers and journalling cards. Also a K&Co decorative border for the title. It features a photo of Rob being cuddled by his mum (yes in broad daylight) and the journalling tells of his fondness for cuddles.....but not in public.

I survived......and that's just the wetsuit! Yeah I rocked the look, surfing the waves on the Devon coast, sleek, cool and hip.....*cough*.....ahem......well maybe in my fantasy world!
Anyhow back to reality.....washing, ironing and a little scrapping. I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY like this one. I love the photo of Rob slurping his milkshake in an American Style Diner that we stopped for lunch in Gt Yarmouth. I used Jenni Bowlan papers, polka dot felt, Thickers Alphas and American craft buttons stitched to the page.
Just off to dream of hot instructors in wetsuits!

Tomorrow I will be up early and joining forty or so Year 6 children for a six hour drive to Devon. Then spending the rest of the week surfing, kayaking, climbing, abseiling and jumping from great heights from wobbly telegraph poles. It's going to be tiring and cold (especially while surfing in a wetsuit) but great fun. So while I am away I am going to keep my eye on you lot.
See the eye on one of my Zenty Doodle ATC's? Creepy eh? But I kind of like it. I hope who ever receives it in the UKS Zentangle ATC swap likes it too. It is going to be fun to see all the different styles the ladies at UKS are going to come up with. Although not on purpose I think mine have defiantly a bold graphic feel to them.
So behave yourselves while I'm away and I will check in on my return just in case your worried that I may brake something on my adventures.
