A cool new sketch at Scrap Africa

Hi there everyone!  First I want to apologise for being so scarce arounde web lately.  There are several things that are causing delays on my side, but I won't bore you with the details.  I am planning a bit of a catch up in the next few days. ;)  Today I want to share the cool May Sketch at Scrap Africa with you.
And my example.  The background paper is from an older My Minds Eye collection.  I love these photos of DH and I.  His sister took them while we were on holiday in March this year. :)

I've added some Dusty Attic chipboard, a Pink Paislee burlap flower and some of the new Green Tara Heirloom Blooms.  They come in the most amazing colours. :)

More flowers... this time Green Tara Mini Roses and Kaisercraft Mini paper blooms.
Another close up showing some of the texture created with the Prima 'Chevron' mask, some muslin and an old pizza box. Lol!

I hope you can play along with this challenge.  It's always great to see some of my blog friends play along and you might just win an awesome prize in the process.  You can see the rest of the DT's beautiful examples HERE.  You have until the 14th of May to get your entries in.
 
That's all for today.  I hope you are having a wonderful week!  Thank you so much for calling by.  It's always appreciated. :)
Until next time!

This is fabulous Marelize. I love the splash of colour. And don't worry about being mia for a while. We all have families to look after, work to attend to as well as our scrapping commitments. It all gets a bit busy sometimes!
