Another Sketch for the Nerds

The Scrapbook Nerds have another Sketch up on the Forum designed by yours truly. I'm really enjoying creating these sketches but I hope I never run out of ideas!!

This is the sketch:

And here's my take on the sketch. You'll notice most of my pages are almost direct duplicates but that is certainly not the case all the time. I'm finding when I do the sketch I follow it completely. But when I use someone else's it often ends up looking totally different.

These photos were taken last summer when Meredith and I took a quick trip out to Vancouver Island to see my mother. While we were there we visited a Lavender Farm. When we pulled in a couple of dogs ran to the car barking and causing quite a stir. My mother is good with dogs so she got out and calmed them down, then Meredith and I emerged. Neither of us is good with barking, bouncing dogs. 

One of them really took a shine to Meredith and wouldn't let her walk more than a couple of steps without flopping down on her feet and demanding a belly rub.  Meredith had had a bad experience with a couple of foster dogs at a friends house that caused her to believe dogs just didn't like her. I had no idea!! 

Meredith was delighted to discover dogs actually liked here

We spent more time with the dogs than admiring the lavender.

NSD Sketch and Page

Hello blogosphere. It’s been a long time. 

I’ve been creating some sketches for the gals over at Scrapbook Nerd and thought I could share some of them here. They’ve had some great challenges going on over there lately. 

One of them was a sketch challenge (created by me, yay!) for National Scrapbook Day. The ran a weekend long online crop. It was the Early Bird Challenge. Here's my sketch:

Here’s the page I did to go along with that sketch (so sorry about the bad photo!):

This page was done with photos I found on our underwater camera when we got it out to pack up for Isobel's time at camp last year. I love found photos, don't you?
