What's your favourite layout?

Happy Thursday everyone, it'll soon be the weekend and a lovely long one here in the UK. Added to that my month long spell of holiday cover at work is over so that means that I shall be visiting  you all more often!!

Anyway, I am actually here to shout about the new challenge starting today at

As You Like It and we are inviting you to join us and share 

Your Favourite Layout...here's mine (at the moment!!)


I have been really enjoying sketches at the moment, particularly Jules' at Always With A Heart. This gem is #6 from her ever growing collection and I especially like this layout as it showcases the patterned papers beautifully, in this case Dovecraft More or Less. I dug out my The Ca't Pajamas stamps and chose to use this one "A Girl and her Cake". She was coloured with Promarkers to match the papers.

Another darling image - love this bunny with his cake and ears blowing in the wind. Lots of sparkle on the frosting, and you always have the prettiest of colors & patterns on the design layout. Wonderful sketch, and adorable card. Glad the rain eased up so you could go enjoy an outing. I saw on Facebook that Buckham had lots of rain early on, but then it cleared up. So glad that MC had a great fair, for the worthwhile charity. I've been enjoying the pictures that folks who attended have been sharing on FB. Have a great weekend, hope the weather is nice for you. TFS & Hugs
