Sassy Lil Sketches – Switch it up!!

Good morning!!!

I’m excited to present my Sassy Lil’ Switch it up take on September’s Week 2 sketch designed by Cherie:

I’m feeling a bit like Alice in Wonderland, last month I shrunk it to an A4 size, this month I’m stretching it to a double layout!!

I’ve also flipped it on it’s side …

Here it is:


I so enjoyed making this double layout … the papers are all from DCWV ‘the Performance Stack’, which has lovely music papers and vellum sheets … I was able to buy this pack locally and shared it with my friend Zeffy … with the girls being so musically inclined I knew that I would get good use out of it …

Katerina plays the violin and Sofia the mandolin.

Here are some close ups:

vellum paper to the right, crate paper journaling box



2 Mandolin images cutouts one in vellum, chipboard embellies

2 Violin cutouts one in vellum, chipboard embellies, musical brad, MS edge punch with gems.


Music to my ears – title from DCWV papers

Sassy’s Lil Sketch 21st July

Amazing it’s the 21st again, and I can’t believe that another six months with Sassy Lil’ Sketches have gone by!!!

I’m so happy to announce that I’ve signed on for another six months ….

I find Cherie’s sketches so inspirational … and here is July’s sketch!

I love the versatility of multiphoto layouts … and I decided to use photos from my day out to the Special Olympics with my friend Irini, godson C3 and his friend Ilias! The papers are mainly echo park, although I did sneek in a bit of Crate paper in the background …

Here is my take on it:
