Sketchy Thursday 1.5 Challenge 'Snail Love' and 'Discover'


I loved the new sketch from the ST girls so much that I did two los with it!! One for BF's album (I have got to pick up the pace as I only have 3 weeks left before the BIG day), and one of my DGD.

Here is the sketch:

1.5 sketch

gorgeous eh? Here are my takes:

The first one, Snail Love, is of my GD observing the smallest snail I have ever encountered! She was fascinated with the little creature, my fear was that after watching it cross the path for so long (yes, we really did stand there for what seemed like hours!) the poor old snail would end up squished! So, much care was taken to avoid that part of the path :0)
Papers are Cosmo Cricket 'Odds and Ends', the banner is punched and stamped with a Maya Road  set I continually return to but is as old as the hills, then stitched with brown yarn, the wooden snails have been painted with Dabbers. The LOVE title is from the Odds and Ends papers and has been fussy cut.

The next one is of my BF's sons and Mum on a boat - Sue look away now!

Papers and stickers are October Afternoon, the chipboard pieces are Crate Paper, rosette is American Crafts and  the stamp is Fiskars. The journal tag on the left hand side was a right result...die cut with Spellbinders and then edged with a Promarker pen, really pleased with how it came out :0)

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a lovely day!

**** The Snail Love layout was a Sketchy Thursday fave :0) ****
