Sketches with a Twist

I found a new site with monthly sketch challenges.
May Challenge at Sketches with a Twist has this design to work with and you had to add stitching to your page.

Here is my layout using some pics my mum took when visiting my brother who lives in Dubai. They went 4WD on the sand, and there sure is plenty of sand over there.
I used a Simple Stories paper for my background and added 7 gypsies Lille range over the top and inked these

My embellishments are a mixture of Prima flowers, elements cut from Echo Park,Crate, Simple Stories and 7 gypsie papers.

I stitched the compass and around the paper matting my photos

  4. I think you did a great job of staying true to the colors and feeling of your photos. In fact, I can feel sand in my teeth! :-) It's a lovely layout. Thank you so much for joining our May challenge at Sketches With a Twist. :-)

  5. This is a fabulous take on the sketch and I love the way your layout really enhances the theme of your photos. Your stitching of the compass is a fabulous way to incorporate our twist. Thanks so much for joining us at Sketches with a Twist this month.
