While he is sleeping...

I've been scrapping.  Gene takes a couple of long naps each day which is just what the dr. ordered for him to recover from his back surgery.  For my therapy, I have been scrapping.  Most helpful have been the sketches from Sketches in Thyme.  There are two a month on this challenge sketch board and this is the second one.  This one is by Rochelle Spears and can be viewed here.

This is my take on the sketch and it was such fun to do.  Thinking of you, Lisa and Clare, our friends in New Zealand.







What I love about doing the sketches is that, for some reason, I feel freer to use up older papers and to repurpose embellishments.  Using up my stash has been a primary goal of mine for a few months.  On to another layout while I have a some free time.
