Written In The Stars

I saw a competition on PageMaps blog with a sketch and thought I'd quite like a go at it although I had no plans to submit my entry to try and win. So, what were the rules? They gave you a sketch designed for an 8 1/2 x 11 LO and asked you to convert it to a 12x12 LO, use at least one photo, a title, some journalling and products that were still widely available. Also the winning entry was going to be published in May/June so they wanted LOs suitable for that time of year.

Here's the sketch and my LO

For some reason, I always spell LeAnn wrong and add an 'e' to the end! Photo is of an ex-housemate of mine (Cecelia). The journalling speaks for itself I think.

I used:
Ric-Rak - widely available
Journalling stamp - any journalling stamp with lines will do for this as I had to print it several times to get enough lines. Not sure the one I used is still available.
Brush Markers - also widely available - mine were free with a mail order craft club.
This was also done for the challenge on Scrummy Stash Cafe blog which was to scrap your favourite band/artist/song.
Thanks for looking
Take care
Love and hugs
