Pun'kin's Visit 2007

One of Sian's layouts has been turned into a sketch for the Sketchbook365 October challenge. If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, then you know that I enjoy sketches. I pulled a couple of photos from my niece's visit back in 2007 and set to work.

I knew I would have to modify the sketch because I wanted to include this note that Pun'kin wrote along with her drawing of me standing (upside down it seems) on the sidewalk watching her ride her bike.

I then added some square punched photos and small square embellishment blocks with several bits & pieces in each block.

The final step was adding the corner banner and title block.

This was a fun sketch to work with - I especially enjoyed creating the small embellishment clusters. Thanks Sian for the inspiration!


  1. Melissa, this feels like a very special version of the sketch to me - becasue I know that you know how much I love it when you include memorabilia on your pages :) It's perfect! Thank you so much for using the 365 Sketch and letting us all see that note

  2. How lovely that you included the little note - it makes it all the more special ... Great take on the sketch. :)

  3. Love the inclusion of the note and the photo strip across the top. What a great way to remember a visit!

  4. Love the note and that you made it prominent :)

    Punkin used to be my nickname many many years ago so it made me smile.


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
