Allsorts Challenge ~ 'Sketch & Tear'

Good Morning

This week's Allsorts Challenge has been set by Jules and she has gone with a combination challenge 'Sketch & Tear'

Firstly you need to use the sketh but Jules would also like to see some torn edges on your work this week. It can be just one edge or lots of edges - just tear your paper as much as you dare.

I struggled at first because the thought of tearing my papers upset me a little and to be honest I didn't really have a clue how to do it. However, I plucked up the courage and I actually quite like the finished result.

Here is my DT card

Image ~ Whiff of Joy 'Sitting Summer Willow'
Papers ~ HOTP Vintage
Sentiment ~ Whiff of Joy
Everything else from stash

We are now off out as Chris and Jamie are having their hair cut at 10:00 and then the children want to spend the money they have been saving in their money boxes. Chloe wants a DS game and no doubt my 'tractor mad' son will want yet another tractor.

Have a great weekend and hope the sun is shining for you.

Hi Lisa

You managed ripping those DP's then and with great effect. I know it would hard for you !

It's though I know, had these lovely new Christmas MME DP's which I had to use for samples, made my cringe cutting them up.
