Scrap 365 Sketch Challenge.

Hi Everyone I have just finished my take on the sketch challenge for March at Scrap 365.
Here is the ultra layered sketch:

Very cool! Now I have deviated a little (those who know me know I seldom stick to a sketch) but I have layered up the photo and added the title to the bottom rather than the top. I hope everyone can still see that I did start out with the sketch in mind!!
The LO is of the big fellas' this summer down at the beach house. It is becoming a tradition to have a full house of teenage boys over the summer break and new years. 
Apart from  feeding the "hoards" it is a heap of fun for everyone!

I found my chosen title, from Scrap FX, was way too heavy to place at the top of the page, so had to switch that around from the get go.

Played with a lot of colour on the background using my Lindys Sprays, Stamps and the chipboard piece as a stencil.

I have used paper from the Persimmon line by Basic Grey, it is my favourite ATM, I do not know what I will do when it all goes... but I am making an attempt not to use it I will!!
Here is the full page with those boys in all the finery!!

Just a few more close ups for you and I am done I promise!

I just loved this chipboard piece, I even found a stamp that suited it perfectly, it all just came together easily. It is amazing what you find in your stash when you look past the top of that pile!!

 The quote stamp is from Kaiser, just perfect!
And that brings me to the end of my show and tell. 
Hope everyone has a brilliant week and will be back shortly with a girly page (oh I know....gasp! LOL)
