Sketch Along Tuesdays 1-11

Hi folks!! Hows your day going? It's a bit warm and muggy here today, but after all the terrible weather being experienced around the world I have promised myself that I will never moan about the weather again. Living in Johannesburg we are truly blessed with fairly good weather. They have predicted heavy rain for the weekend so I guess that means I will have a bit of extra scrapping time!!!!

Today I made a LO for the Tuesday sketch challenge over at Frosted Designs . This is what the sketch looks like

I am using these challenges to get some of my holiday pictures scrapped. This photo was taken at the Addo Elephant Park in the Eastern Cape. We sat and watched the ellies (my Favourite animal in the whole wide world) for a long time and they would not turn around, so I photographed their bottoms....LOL. This is what the LO looks like

In keeping with the African theme I tried to draw an Acacia tree ~ probably won't win a prize for artist of the day, but hey it's an original. No one else has an embellishment that looks anything like it Heehee.

Why not go on over to Frosted Designs and try out some of their awesome challenges. There is also a Friday challenge going on at the moment.

One last reminder that my BLOG CANDY is closing on Saturday. If you haven't signed up for it yet HERE is where you want to go.

Happy crafting. Till next time keep safe and remember to always take some time out of your day to be kind to yourself!!!
