Yacht Club

A very talented Scrapbooker, Nadia, has started a sketch challenge site called Once Upon A Sketch and this is the first sketch:




My second kit from Your Scrapbook Stash arrived today and I was given some Webster's Pages Yacht Club to use.   So out of my box. We are also challenge this month to use mainly paper, ie not a lot of fru, fru, chipboard etc.   Well I  decided to go right to work. I did some fussy cutting and stitching (that I'm comfortable with, hehehe).  The clouds are cut with the Spellbinders Die.  This is a picture of Danica about 10 years ago, on one of her first fishing trips, do you think she liked it? LOL
