2 Sketches 4 You Challenge

The sketch this week on 2 Sketches 4 You has been set by Kazan......and boy did I struggle this week - not with the sketch but getting the photograph - I just couldn't get the true colour of the papers. I was making a Birthday Book for a friend's birthday and her favourite colour is BLUE. The pages of the book were computer generated to show a page for each month of the year.


  • Papers..Chipboard Alphabet..Rub-ons and Gems are all from K & Co Blue Awning Collection.
  • Ribbon: from my Stash
  • Eyelets: WeR Memory Keepers
