Friday Frenzy

Yes, I have been in a creative frenzy today. Mainly because I'm finishing off some last minute gifts & decorations for Mother's Day & I was determined to finish this layout today so that I could get on with my other Challenges for May (one of which I've already missed the deadline for).
This page is for the Monthly Sketch Challenge over at The Boxx. The sketch is designed by the lovely Sara Noendeng:

My take on this sketch is based around another of my travel pics. Whilst visiting Bavaria in Germany, the crew of our ship put on a Bavarian themed lunch and of course it was based around the wonderful German beer. This is DH demonstrating how to drink a German beer from a Stein :) and for some reason he just kept on demonstrating until he had perfected the technique! Now I'm not usually a beer drinker, but after a morning of exploring up & down cobbled stairways through one of the many beautiful medieval villages along the river that we were lucky enough to visit, I must say my tongue was ready for anything cool & wet. There must be something special about European beer, because after this I felt the need to try a beer several more times along the river & on into the spectacular beer halls of Prague. Funnily enough I haven't touched beer again since returning home.....go figure. So anyhoo, here is my take on the sketch.

Thanks for looking :) Until next time......


  1. Great take on the sketch Jo, I love how you have told the story of the background of it as well. I'm afraid I have never liked the taste of beer. The book you are reading sounds interesting ~Paris in Love, might have to keep an eye out for that one. You have a gift of writing, I am hopeless :(
    I get frustrated as English used to be my best subject, but I seem to have lost the knack of finding the words
    Hope you had a lovely Mothers Day

  2. Awesome LO Jo, love it. Loved reading the story behind the great photo. Love the beer stein embellie and the banner. Great page for the sketch, I'm almost finished mine, not being able to get into the Boxx for a few days has delayed things.
    Hope you had a lovely Mothers Day. Enjoy your week. :) x
