May Sketch challenge at The Scrapbook Store

Hi everyone!  Hope you all had a great weekend.  Just want to share the new May sketch from The Scrapbook Store with you.  It's a beautiful sketch from PageMaps.
And here is my example.  I don't often do male pages, as I'm not very comfortable with it, but I really enjoyed doing this one.  The pics are of my DH taken during a recent holiday and I just love how relaxed he looks. :)
The chipboard pieces are from Dusty Attic and the flowers from Manor House and Prima
 I love adding hessian and muslin to my layouts. :)
A close up of the background texture I've created using the Crafters Workshop 'Mini Cubist' template and some Texture Magic.
I hope you get a chance to play along.  There's a $40 store voucher (with free postage) up for grabs and the winner gets determined by random draw, which means anybody can win!!  You have until the end of the month to get your entry in!
Okay, I'm off to get ready for the new week.  Hopefully Monday will be kind to us all!
Thank you for popping by and for all your lovely comments.  I really appreciate it.
Until next time!

Your masking is always so awesome! (I'm going to look out for this one for sure!) I also really love the gentle leaves, they make me think of seaweed underwater, and the hessian like a fishing net. Perfect for these shots
