A Gem of a Challenge

Good morning

Hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend :-) I know I am ... Chloe and Jamie are both moving up to their next school in September so we've been busy with leaver's services, BBQ's, discos etc this week. It's all been very emotional but we are now all looking forward to the summer hols ...  hope the weather improves because we have lots of days out planned :-)

Jackie is our host this time at A Gem of a Challenge and she has a super sketch for you :-)  The prize is 2 sets of digi papers (Slugs n Snails and Sugar & Spice) from Pink Gem Designs

The sentiment can be added anywhere you like or not at all ... the choice is yours!


I have used Sitting Chloe and the frame around the image is cut with a Spellbinder Shapeabilities Floral Doily Motifs. Both are available from Pink Gem Designs.

The papers are First Edition 'Daydream' ... I love the colours in this pack.  The sentiment is from the General Greetings set at Lili of the Valley. The seam binding and all the flowerrs are from Wild Orchid Crafts except the large peach rose which I believe was from Crafty Feeling.

Hope you have a great weekend :-)
