A Country Girl at Heart

The weekly challenge a couple of weeks ago on UKS was to use this sketch

I found this photo taken when I was about sixteen on the farm that my grandparents lived and worked on for most of their lives.  I still miss going there and seeing the photo has reminded me how much I hate living in a town, where people all live virtually on top of each other and there is little open space.

The other criteria for the challenge was to use five different papers and to use distressing.  The papers I used were all leftovers from a class at last year's Sarah's Cards retreat - My Mind's Eye 'Fine & Dandy'.  I punched the butterflies with an EK Success punch and then coloured the pearls orange with a Promarker.


  1. This is gorgeous Karen, I especially love the colour combination, its perfect for the fab photo :) A great take on the sketch, Luv Karen xx

  2. I love this Layout Karen, great choice of papers, Love the pic you look so peaceful and free! lovely memory, Hugs May x x x x

  3. Lol we used that sketch for sketch & scrap a few months ago! Fab page Karen, I love the colour pallette it suits the photo perfectly! :)

  4. Fabby page Karen, the papers and distressing are perfect for the photo


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment, I do read all of them and they are really appreciated.
