Sketch time with Tracee

Hi , I hope everyone had a great Easter, we spent Easter down by the seaside in Brixham, the whole family complete chaos (that nice chaos tho)
Got to play with some great goodies by Crate Paper this month, from the Party Day range and chose a sketch from Page Drafts to work with
Whilst these papers are Birthday themed there is enough neutral patterns to create a layout with any theme you like
My little Granddaughter got new glasses last year and I realised that I haven't scrapped about that yet so I chose a picture of her wearing them, before she had even got on the bus to go home
I used the reverse side of this sheet for my background
My photo mat was cut from this sheet along with the banners
one really great thing about this sheet is the reverse side matches, so if you cut a tag, for instance, from one side it will be a tag of a different colour on the reverse. Hope that makes sense
Crate also brought out some 12 by 12 washi paper that you can cut into strips which I used behind my photo and also to cover one of my chipboard speech bubbles with, it's fab that you get lots of different patterns and don't have a whole reel of just one that you can sometimes be left wondering what to do with it.

Here is the sketch I used, if you want to play along we would love to see what you create. Leave a link in the comments box and we will check it out
