Poorly People and Perfect Portraits…..

The poorly people were, well, all of us! We have all just gotten over a tummy bug which washed us all out for nearly a week. Even my overactive, excitable son who lets nothing get in his way was reduced to a lethargic state!

Very blurry face there!

Thank fully we are all now fully recovered, so I have finally managed to make another LO. It may have been only a week, but it seems like much longer since I have had the chance to scrap!

I was however, quite stuck for inspiration. This usually doesn’t happen for long but I just could not get started! That was, until I found a sketch on the Sarah’s Cards Blog.

My photo I had already chosen was the perfect shape and size for the sketch, and the bits I had started to choose fit in well too. So i just jiggled my exsisting layers around, added a few more, and voila!

I machine stiched around the edge, which is an effect I really like at the moment, and used 4 Bo-Bunny brads. Now usually, I wouldn’t use more than one on a LO because they are too expensive and yummy to waste, but as these were free, I didn’t mind! 🙂

In fact, I loved this sketch so much, I just might use it to do another page again soon. Maybe rotated? Watch This Space….!


  1. Gorgeous page Lou – I love all the distressing & the butterflies add prettiness!
    Hope your kiddies are well again soon & maybe you could use those photo's for our next challenge!?
    Thanx for joining in 🙂
