Paper Chase October Sketch Challenge - Winner

It's Saturday and time to catch up with the online scrap-booking world.  I got a lovely surprise when visiting the Paper Chase site to see that I was the lucky winner of the October Sketch Challenge.   The entries can be seen on their facebook site here.  Also check out the November Sketch Challenge and have a go!

Here is my October Entry.
 Who would have thought that girls would be into this ... but they were.  It was great fun until they had to wash it off.  They just thought they would jump in the batch shower but NanNan had other ideas lol.  It is a page I had had been wanting to do for some time and the Paper Chase sketch was just perfect for the photos.
The journalling tag and rub-ons were from a Kaiser Collection.   Papers are from a DCWV Mariposa stack and I used a Martha Stewart around the page punch and some Kaisercraft bling. 
 I had had this spiral arrow for ages so it was nice to use it.
Oops I see a wee glitch in my punching in this closeup however scrap-booking doesn't have to be perfect does it?  it adds character lol.

It is a lovely sunny day here today - lawns could be on the agenda later.  We were supposed to be going appliance browsing this morning but DH has baby pigeon problems - they have gone awol on their early morning flight and have landed where they shouldn't.  Our 10 yo dishwasher has packed up and on speaking to the appliance people it will be very expensive to fix so we are weighing up some options.  It is frustrating that things are not made to last these days.  Our chest freezer is still chugging along after 33 years.  Also a microwave is on the list (we have never had one) but in the recent kitchen renovation we allowed a space so no excuses now.

Must away and get motivated for the day.  Have an enjoyable fun weekend.

Until next time...
