The High Hopes challenge this week was a sketch- my favourite kind! I have used papers from Basic Grey Marrakech, ooh I like these. The stamp and sentiment are High Hopes and are coloured with my Derwent Inktense pencils.
I am so bad at managing the weekly challenges for my team on UKS. This is the first layout I have done in ages. You had to use a photo that made you laugh, 5 embellies, some sparkle and a quote by Oscar Wilde. I managed the first three but none of the quotes I read seemed to fit so I won't get maximum points. The paper is Basic Grey, Oh Boy and I have covered all the numbers 8 & 4 with Rhinestone Stickles as these were the boy's ages at the time the photo was taken. That counts for the sparkle although i don't know if you will make it out. I matted the photo on some yellow Bazzill which I punched around with my SU Scalloped Edge Punch. The journalling is again on the yellow Bazzill and I used my new Basic Grey journalling stamps. The 5 embellies are the little Zoomz below the picture.
