Shimelle's Sketch Challenge-Meeting Rinda

There's a weekend of fun going on over at Shimelle.com....cropping....challenges....prizes....and a whole week to complete and enter your projects....and they don't all have to be layouts.

It's inspired me to get started on some pages.....especially as I collected 256 photos from Jessops yesterday......lots are of our holiday.....quite a few of Little A.......and, of course, my London trip to meet my blog friend Rinda.
This meeting was always going to be documented.....and I may make a mini album with the rest of the photos.....but here's a 12 x 12 page using Shimelle's sketch.
I'm trying to use up my hundreds dozens many....... part used alphabet stickers and chipboards........rather than buying more......so some creative thinking required......an upside down 'f' doesn't make a bad 't'.....and F and L stuck together work as an 'e'.
I will probably add some more journaling as well.

Thanks for the tip on using an upside f to make a t. Did you also use a w for an m?

I bet you were thrilled to meet up with Rinda, and had a great time.

And a U for an N possibly?

Great idea for a t! Would never have thought of that! Love your layout - the colours are gorgeous. Would love to have joined in with Shimelle's online crop this weekend but it has been a really full on weekend here!
