Purple Pumpkin April challenge!

Every month at Purple Pumpkin we have a fun sketch challenge and the sketch for this month was designed by me! and so I would love it if you would join us this month and tried my sketch (you don't have to use any PP products, but you could win a few!!)!

Here's what I made, a layout about my husband, daughter and son exploring the Vesuvius in 2012. As the summer holidays started a few weeks sooner for Manon and Tim, my husband decided to treat them to a week Naples, Italy. They had a blast!

I used Imaginisce's "Perfect Vacation" for my layout and some Purple Pumpkin goodies of course. 

The tickets, twine and washi tape are from Purple Pumkin.

Supplies: patterned paper, journaling card and diecuts: Imaginisce "Perfect Vacation"; cardstock: American Crafts; washi tape, twine, tickets: Purple Pumpkin; wood veneer: Studio Calico; black words: Dymo writer; color mist: Mister Huey's Studio Calico;

And here's the sketch I designed for this month:

(if you wonder why I added triangles to the right side of my layout too, it's because I tried my hand at some stamping and hated it. So I had to cover it up!).

If you want to see the fabulous projects of the other designers, then hop over to Purple Pumpkin's blog and have a look.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks in advance for all your lovely comments!!
