Paper Stories

This is my take on the challenge over at Paper Stories where they have an amazing sketch.  This was so hard for me to chop into a photo so I looked for ages for the perfect one that I didn't have to cut through faces.
I sort of set myself a bit of a challenge to use some older papers that I had so I picked out some bits and pieces and had my own little kit to work from.  I also haven't plaited anything for years so decided to plait the twine for my banner.

Products Used:
Basic Grey Archaic Paper and Sticker Range
Dylusions Around the Edge Stamp (from Paper Stories ages ago)
Stampin Up Ink
Twine
Sharpie Pens

  9. Whooo good old Jenga had plenty of fun playing that. You've just reminded my I haven't scrapped the picture of my son as we played that. Great page Sandra you would never know that these were old papers and I really like that border on the main background looks like a funky button hole stitch. Great idea doing the plaiting as well!!!
