My Take on Sept Stretch Your Sketch

Hi, I completed this layout the other day. I decided to have a look at another Free Class over at Two Peas In a Bucket called Stretch Your Sketch
I find it rather hard these days to come up with my own designs and love using sketches but this class shows how you can use the sketch and make it go that one step further, The original sketch was this:
If you go to the class Jen Gallacher shows a video walk through of how she uses the sketch. Mine has turned out even more different from hers and the sketch above, wasn't intentional it just turned out that way due to the supplies I had around me and how I wanted to end result to look.
The photos are of some Meerkats at Marwell Zoo, I was so lucky with the shot of the main photo as the Meerkats were always on the move and when I caught this shot I was so chuffed and it reminded me of the Comparethemeerkat.com site lol. So I had to use the phrase "Simples". It just had to be done lol
The Pattern Paper were from my scraps box so not sure on the name of the papers I used. I attempted more sewing to the layout went round the edge of the main Main Card Stock fine but sewing round each of the Circles proved a bit tricky so I resorted to using My Sukura Pen and doing some fake stitching.
I used Stickers to put in the date and year.
I decided to put the three mini photos to the side as they looked best there and then I sewed round another piece of Pattern paper once stuck on the layout and added a title with Alphabet Stickers.
I'm rather annoyed with my Journalling. As you have probably noticed I adore my Black Embossed Sukura Pen for Journalling. But due to little fingers my pen has miraculously gone missing :( My Middle Son wanted to use it for his homework which I rescued it off of him and put it some where safe and now can't find that safe place lol.

So the Journalling is in a glitter blue ink and doesn't look all that great.

Hopefully I will have another Layout to share with you all later today or tomorrow morning as I have another on the go.
