"Gone fishing" #126**The Scrappiest**


Ok ladies...now that's what I call a challenge! Sketch #126 gave me a hard time...I decided to do (as usual) what first came into my mind when I saw it...and that was a sailing boat..LOL..apparently, Lynette Jacobs who is in the design team with me at "The Scrappiest" , had the same thought! Isn't that funny? As Liz (the owner) said, "it is so intriguing what some creative minds see and others don't"...Well, I would LOVE to see what you will come up with using that sketch!!! I am really curious!!!


 That's my "unusual" take...lol It is not something I would usually make but I hate to say no to a good challenge!





I used papers from the "Rusted sun" collection by Fancy Pants and the sea shells as well as the starfish are collected by me from the beach in Samos island!!! Oh and the photo is also taken while I was fishing with my dad in front of our house in Samos!!! We always come out with our bucket full of fishes!!! (ok...small ones...haha)

Have a nice day!!!

One interesting sketch thats for sure but Vicky youtirned it into a GORGEOUS layout. AMAZING work..love the summer feel, the "boat" the whole theme. You are doing so well. Keep going and it just shows how good you are that you created a gorgeous layout out of an unusual sketch. Lucky you to have a house in Samos...!

Lynette said...

Helen Tilbury said...

Goodness me Vicki you have done FANTASTICALLY with a seemingly IMPOSSIBLE sketch - I can understand how that one wore down the old braincells...gosh...Great job you did though - looks amazing!!

Lea said...

Wow! What a beautiful creative layout! Don't think I can do this sketch in time to participate but definitely filing it away for later. When I first saw it I saw a calla lily, going to have to think for awhile to make that!

Melinda said...

Oh yes I thought of a boat too!!!! What an unusal sketch but you have managed to pull it off to perfection!!! Gorgeous layout!! Take care :))xx
