The Great Outdoors

Most crafters are asked at one time or another , "How did you get started?"  For me, I started with scrapbooking , I first saw it on TV and became hooked. I then moved onto ATCs and cards, but I keep going back to scrapbooking. With 6 grandchildren I always have something to record. I found this challenge blog for Scrapbooking sketches,  Stuck On Sketches. Sometimes getting the LO sorted is the longest process for me, so having a sketch is a great help, this one in particular I liked as soon as I saw it.
All of the papers I have used are from my craft stash, Hot Off the Press cardstock, Kraft card. A piece of webbing added for texture, I love to have some texture on my LOs. The birds were stamped, cut out and added to the page. Stamps purchased from E -bay. The title was stamped using the Ransome alphabet set from Royal & Langnickel.


  1. This is lovely Caz. Great kraft background and I love the combination with the turquoise.
