Sketch Saturday # 46

Morning all, earlyish posting from me today even though I'm not at work today, we are off to Colchester Zoo shortly for Sophie's birthday treat, she didn't want a party this year but chose a trip to the zoo with some of her bestest buddies, please keep your fingers crossed that the weather stays dry :)

Today's card is for Sketch Saturday, I really enjoyed this sketch with lots of layering and it gave me the opportunity to use up some of the scraps of paper that were lurking in my craft box. DP are from a DCWV paper stack and this adorable little digi stamp called 'Jim' is from Grab-A-Doodle-Do I have coloured Jim with PM's and he has been mounted onto green and blue SU card stock. The square brads are from my craft box and the sentiment is Elzybells.

I've also been given this award by the extremely talented Bev over at All The things I Love and I feel so honoured and priviledged to have been given this award, thanks Bev, you have made my day :)

I have to pass the Lumas Thorn Award onto 5 people whose blogs inspire me and also make me smile, I always find it so hard to pick people for awards but today I am being brave and after lots of thought I have chosen the following 5 people:

Alison, Chris, Mandy, Helen & Lynsey
