As regular readers of my blog know, I have a lovely friend, Emma, who I met on the internet and who thoroughly inspires and encourages me to be a better and more adventurous crafter :) I miss her if we don't "speak" for a couple of days, however briefly! We don't get many chances to actually get together as we live about 2 hours away from each other, but we do Skype regularly! In fact we try to have one day a week when we craft together via Skype! It's an arrangement that works really well, other than if one of us has the perfect embellishment that would finish off a layout but it is two hours away ...
So, when Emma and I are crafting together, we will often pick a sketch (OK, usually it's me who picks the sketch, Emma is much more easy going and open to suggestions than I am!) and do it together. This week was no different! We are always amazed at how differently our layouts turn out.
Have a look at Emma's page HERE and you will see what I mean! And HERE to see the sketch that we both used (one of us more than the other ;) )
It was a funny old sketch this one! It looked like it would be easy. It looked like it had potential. However, both Emma and I struggled like mad with it! I even said that I didn't think that I would like the end result ... until I finished it that is. Literally by placing the journalling strips on, it all came together, and now I have to say that I actually rather like it! So that should be a lesson to me - don't give up! Of course that isn't always the case ... and Emma didn't like it to such an extent that she took her layout apart and more or less started again!
The papers are Cosmo Cricket's Tea for Two - love them!
