Get Picky Sketch Challenge

As usual I'm not doing anything untill the last moment. Same happened this evening with the sketch challenge for the Get Picky blog in honor of their first blog-birthday. And the result is that now it is dark and I'm not able to take a bright sharp picture of my layout..... Usually I scan my layouts to get the best result, but that is not possible when there are thick addings on your projects, like the rosettes on this layout. So I tried to get the best I could with my camera and hope for the best... Lesson learned: don't wait untill the last moment! Though I created this layout much faster than usual LOL

This is the sketch

And this is my take on it

Everything I used is from October Afternoon Boarding Pass collection, except for the metal rim from Making Memories.
These are pictures of my trip to Rome. On the left picture there is an overview of the Spanish Stairs (Scalinata della Trinità dei Monti) on the Spanish Square (Piazza di Spagna). The right picture is a more close up of the stairs with me on it in the middle. Not very obvious with this dark picture of the layout, but I will try a better one tomorrow.
Now off to bed, have to be at the office in 8 hours....*yawn*

Edit 10-28-2011: changed the picture of the layout to one made by daylight.


  1. Danielle your trip to Rome looks amazing and I love how you've created a little highlight on your photo using the metal rim. Such a wonderful take on the sketch. :)

  4. Haha, je zou nog een daglichtlamp kunnen proberen! ik heb er eentje sinds ik mijn eigen scrapkamertje heb, fantastisch ding! Maak ik ook wel eens foto's bij, maar het beste is toch daglicht.
    En nu over tot je Layout: die is gaaf, joh! Leuk dat cirkeltje om het stukje foto. wat een drukte daar altijd! Mooi frisse kleuren en erg leuke elementen op je pagina. Veel succes!

    Groetjes, Marjan
