G'day everyone and welcome back. Today I'm sharing my take on the mid-month sketch over at Stuck?! Sketches.   This one took me out of my comfort zone a tad which is always a good thing. However it turned out a lot busier than I originally intended. Once I started playing with some Colour Blast texture paste and the Flutterby Designs goodies I just kept going.

It's very rare that we get a chance to have these cousins photographed together, so when the occasion presents itself we really make the most of it.

I used a stencil to throw some texture paste and Flutterby Design paint onto the background and then got out a border punch that I haven't used for ages, plus a few Kaisercraft dies. I've also used Flutterby Designs cards, Flair and Tags. I'm trying to really use lots more colour in my layouts this year, even though it makes me nervous :)  It's a sad fact that I'm really not good at colour coordination.

There is lots of inspiration over at the Stuck?! blog if you are Stuck for ideas :D  

Thanks for looking xx
