This summer I.......

I don't often make scrapbook pages about myself........but having set myself some 'aims' at the beginning of the summer break......I thought it might be good to document some of the things I've done this summer for my 2012 album......and I realised I'd done quite a lot.....too much to go on one page even!!
Scrap365 magazine have a great sketch challenge this month......with a sketch created by the lovely Sian........so how could I resist using it.
This is what I came up with.
I had to write so small to fit everything in.......it's probably not readable on screen!

I've decided I achieved quite a lot!

I love the 'British' theme and strong colours. Good to see a page about you too.

Jacky, this is fabulous! It feels kind of special that you made a page about yourself with this sketch, like you were sitting in my kitchen telling me what you'd been up to :) Thank you.
