Hello all! There is a new sketch challenge over at Scrap Africa and this one's a beauty. I really enjoyed working with it (and have I mentioned how much I love being on their Design Team?!). Denise van Deventer comes up with the most fantastic sketches and I urge you to pop on over and have a go at it.

Not only has the other DT members come up with some wonderful inspo for you, there is also a very talented Guest Designer as well.

I'm so pleased with how the colours worked for this layout, and I just had to use some glitter for the theme (unfortunately this pic doesn't do the colours justice nor the snowflakes made from white glitter paper - it is quite sparkly IRL).

I also added a bit of glitter to the edges of the flowers and the little flair is from Studio Fourteen40 which was a perfect colour match. I've discovered that creating winter layouts are a lot of fun.

I hope you get a chance to play along! Thanks for looking :)


  1. Beautiful Jo, love the cool colour scheme. I don't seem to have many winter photo's unfortunately. Love the cluster and the flair is perfect and love the little snowflake charm.

  2. Thanks Jo for your lovely comments about my sketches! I am really pleased you like them and really hope others will like them too! You created a gorgeous page...loving the soft and delicate elements....so perfect! Gorgeous photo too!

  3. Beautiful photo of your DD and a great take on the sketch. Love the little snow flakes and the flair...oh and the manor house frame too :D

  4. Hello, Jo, I found you through Scrapafrica. You LO is lovely! It reminds me "Frozen". I watched it at the cinema and it seemed to me to really live in an icy world. Your LO makes me feel the same way!
