Lunch at the Boatshed Cafe


I had an evening to myself last night so I browsed the challenge blogs and came up with this page using the 'Sketchabilities' sketch (I can't go past their sketches they are beyond awesome!) and the Scrapfriends colour challenge (which did push me a little out of my comfort zone, but hey, that's good once in a while isn;t it?)
Since improving on perfection is not possible I stuck very close to the sketch. I even dug out two Heidi Swapp file folders from my lder stash to use as my photo mat. I had fun inking my background and I used a ruler painted along one edge with black distress paint to make the black 'frame' around the photo. I journaled on a library card that I habe had in my stash for a while and found the perfect flair button for my theme in a past 'Studio Calico' kit. 


I used the new letter stickers from Basic Grey to spell out my title word 'Boatshed'., These are available in a variety of colours at 'Scrappin Patch'. I always choose white letter stickers if I have the option because then I can colour them to match any page.


Thanks for checking out my work today. Have a great weekend :)
