It's a great weekly challenge by Suzy on Uks:-

I love a sketch as a starting off point for a layout so please use the sketch to inspire you for 5 points. sketch is here

I am well known for sewing on nearly all of my layouts so I would love you to use some sewing on your layout somewhere (either faux or real) for 5 points

I also love making an inky/painty splattery mess in general so please use paints and/or inks on your layout for 10 points

Finally as this week sees the commemoration of the birth of Robert Burns, Scotlands greatest poet I would like you to use a line/quote/title of a poem (this does not necessarily have to be a Burns poem) in your layout for your final 10 points

It was Holly's birthday on Saturday and we went out for a meal to our local Beefeater and then had birthday cake at home.

I didn't use a quote from a poem so I can't claim the points for that:(

I cut a butterfly out of a Coke can because Holly could keep this company going alone by the amount she drinks of the stuff lol!

This is gorgeous Susi, I love the red inking in the background and the little felt flowers and the coke can butterfly is a very funky touch and personal to your daughter. Thank you so much for taking part in my first solo challenge

Beautiful page Susi. I love the felt flowers & what a fab idea for the butterfly :D

It looks like she had a lovely birthday - so sorry I didn't wish her a good one (bit pre-occupied oops). Lovely pic of Holly & true to form one of her crazy ones too! xxx
