Shimelle's Sketch of the Week

This week I might even be on time posting this!  I made a layout for Shimelle's sketch of the week last night, talk about cutting it close!.  Here is the sketch this week.

And here is my take on it using photos from when The Princess baked cookies for her birthday party-bags.  She baked a family favourite, Black Eyed Susans (or Swedish Spritz with chocolate centers).

Crate Paper 'Emmas Shoppe' papers
I used a few scraps I had from this collection and one full sheet ... there is still sooooo much of it left and yet I love the way it turned out.  I used some of the matching die-cuts and scraps from my desk to finish it off.  The Princess loves it.  She baked 177 cookies that night!

The photos were taken with my phone so they weren't great quality.  It was nice to have a sketch with smaller photos.

If all my scheduled posts come up as they should for the rest of the week you will see what i did with some of Shimelle's last few sketches.

On another note, do you remember when I was lucky enough to win a prize when Shimelle did her challenge weekend?  Well it arrived this week!!!!!  A beautiful box of Basic Grey goodies.  And I didn't have any of them as they really haven't been in the budget of late, so it was an extra special prize!!!
Sorry about the picture, the internet is playing up!
Thank you Shimelle and Basic Grey for the wonderful weekend and prize!!!
