July's challenge at My Creative Sketches

Hi everybody,
Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my last two posts.
I really enjoy reading them...
Today I want to share a layout I created for the July challenge at
I really love their sketches last month I was the winner of their AMAZING prize pack
luck was on my side for once hihihi...
It was the first time I won up there and I'm playing along as long as I have my blog so up to two years.
This is the sketch for this month:
created by the wonderful Kim Keane...
This time I played with a older collection by BoBunny Country Garden!
I really like the soft colours in this collection and the bright yellows /oranges this time I used the soft tones in my layout.
This is my take on the sketch:
Now for my close-ups:

I can't wait to see the next sketch

August Challenge at Scrap Around The World

Hi sweets,
When I came home from work yesterday our sweet little rat "Moppie" died I was glad he didn't die alone (hubby and son where home).
It's so weird you get so attached to a pet that most of the time only lives up to a maximum of two years......he had a great live so he past away at age two years and eight months.
He was such a sweety:
You will be missed!
Now up for the scrappy/happy part of this post......
Today I want to share a layout I created for the August challenge at:
owner Helen Tilbury
I always get very happy from their challenges this month is no different look at this amazing mood board:
I think this mood board is very romantic don't you?
Gorgeous work from Eila Sandberg and Jules McKenna-De Lumen for creating such a create moodboard/sketch 
I got kind of carried away with the many gorgeous dies by Cheery Lynn Designs while creating this layout (so much that my Big Shot broke down on me) so glad I have guarantee on it I just bought it last May! I used a picture of little old me yesssss I scrapped about myself  LOL
So this is my take on the August challenge:
Believe (in yourself)
