Studio Calico Abroad layout

Hi there bloggers.

I have two sick boys in my house this week who I'm taking to the Doctor's today. Not fun. I was also unwell but have recovered, although I had something different to them.

I did manage to do a layout last night. Having a bit of withdrawals I was. Such a busy time of year right now. Hard to keep on top of things.

I love this photo I took of my son, Damon. He looks so very pleased with his very special, fancy dessert. I wanted to capture the wonderful bright colours of two of the sorbets and carry that through on the layout. The Studio Calico Abroad range, which I just bought, was perfect for it.

I have used green and red ink to give subtle highlights to the papers and done a bit of distressing around the outside edge.

I've entered this layout into Anna's Craft Cupboard's November sketch competition and in Studio Calico's weekly challenge.

Thanks for looking.
