Queen's Day

A quick post from me today.... it's almost midnight and for me that's late. Tomorrow it's my hubby's birthday and I still have to "decorate" the room (had to wait until he went upstairs and that took a while) and then I realized I hadn't posted my layout for the Dutch Dares new sketch challenge yet!!

So here we go! The sketch:

And my take:

At first glance my impression was "what a difficult sketch", but then the ideas came flooding in and guess what? My page was finished in only half an hour!!

The photo collage was created in Picasa. The papers are from My Mind's Eye, the orange banner is made from the crushed velvet cardstock from Doodlebug, the alphabet stickers and twine is from Doodlebug too and the mini alpha stickers are from My Little Shoebox. Add 2 buttons and 5 staples and you're done!!

Want to see what the other designers created, or maybe even join us?? Hop on over to the Dutch Dares blog!!

Thanks for visiting my blog today and see you soon!


  1. oh I love how many photos you have on your layout and it works!! gorgeous Monique!

  2. What a fabulous page! The photos are wonderful and your details are perfect with them!
