Scrap Africa Sketch No 28 and MME 'Now & Then Dorothy'

Hi everyone! Hope you didn't fall for any April Fool's jokes today. Lol!  I must admit, I was extra careful today not to believe everything I hear. Well, it's a new month and there is a new sketch challenge at Scrap Africa.
Here is my take on the sketch. The photo is of my SIL photographing a big tree in the Boranup Forest south of Margaret River.  I have used the new MME Now & Then 'Dorothy' collection.  All products are available from The Scrapbook Store
The barcode on the bottom left of my photo and the 'Now and Then' are part of the strip at the bottom of one of the 12 x 12 pattern papers. The Petaloo blooms matched the colours perfectly.
Blue Fern Studios has the most amazing chipboard pieces. I have painted over my title chipboard using gesso and then painted/dabbed on ink in brown and teal until I was happy with the result.  The Tim Holtz 'Rays' stencil is on of my favourites. I've used Lindy Stamp Gang mist to give it a deep sunshiny colour and then created some texture over the top using texture paste and a Scrap FX stencil.
 I love how versatile the Journal card pack is. I've used two of them on this layout.
I hope you get a chance to play along.  There are some awesome prizes up for grabs.  To check out all the gorgeous inspiration from the rest of the DT and Guest DT members, have a look HERE.  You have until the 14th of April to link up your entry.
That's me for today.  I better go and get some sleep (story of my life).  To everyone who wished me luck and my son a happy birthday... the party turned out really great and everyone had a wonderful time.  Now I just need to catch up on all the sleep I've lost!  Thank goodness they only turn 21 once! :)
Thank you so much for popping by my blog today.  I really appreciate you taking the time to have a look.  Have an awesome week.
Until next time.
