August 15th Sketch..

hope your weekend so far is going well... 

it is reveal time for the mid month sketch over at Stuck Sketches
 August 15th sketch 
 and colour inspiration from the stuck blog header colours - red, blue and green with neutral.

Let me just say that YES! my blue is a darker blue than the blue we mainly see in Stuck blog header!
BUT! if you look real hard you should see the darker blue, in the pattern paper which is part of the blogger header...
When I was younger... I thinking from 7 to about 12 years of age I remember...
We lived next to a park I would happily go spend a couple of hours, sitting in the park at clumps of cloves & search for 4/5 & (I even found once a 6) leaf cloves....  then bring them back home & add them to an album The kids were looking though this album.. YEP! I still have this album... They were like Ummmm Mum "why do you have these in here? Next minute we are out side going for a walk down the road 
 looking for clumps trying to find cloves....  LOL!  Ethan was the first to give up saying "I can't find any, there mustn't grow with more than 3 now...  my reply was Ethan "you need to look for more than five seconds " We or should I say myself end up founding 3, 4 leaf cloves on this day & instead placing them in the album I took photos instead .... 
 papers are Kasiercraft - Porcelain Rose  (really liked this range) the flowers are...... YEP! Green Tara
 some hidden jornaling...
my fellow creative team members have created some REALLY GORGEOUS layouts..  HERE
