My Creative Sketches March

Here is my go at the March sketch challenge over on the My Creative Sketches Blog
Its a lovely sketch and there are some fabulous examples over there.
My LO is my daughter's christening in 1980. I've used the last of one of my MCS kits and added some lace around the doily and the edges of the pattern papers. The title was cut on the Cricut

It was an old photo with some damage and I'm quite pleased with the way it has scanned

My Creative Scrapbook Challenges

This is my LO for the My Creative Scrapbook March challenge - to use different textures on your LO. I embossed and inked, used twine for stitching, chipboard, misting, burlap, lace (inked)...

The photo is my daughter Jen when she was 4 in Beddgelert in Wales at the gravestone of Gelert the faithful hound of Prince Llewelyn.

The story on the tombstone reads

" In the 13th century Llewelyn, prince of North Wales, had a palace at Beddgelert. One day he went hunting without Gelert, the Faithful Hound, who was unaccountably absent.

On Llewelyn's return the truant, stained and smeared with blood, joyfully sprang to meet his master. The prince alarmed hastened to find his son, and say the infants cot empty, the bedclothes and floor covered with blood.

The frantic father plunged his sword into the hounds side, thinking it had killed his heir. Tho dogs dying yell was answered by a child's cry.

Llewelyn searched and found his boy unharmed, but near by lay the body of a mighty wolf which Gelert had slain.

The prince filled with remorse is said never to have smiled again. He buried Gelert here"
I was taken here a girl by my parents and cried at the story of Gelert. I think Jen was too young to understand

My Creative Sketches has another fantastic sketch on their blog ( closing date 14th April )

I've been really lucky with previous sketches and have won some lovely prizes as a random winner. I'll be uploading my entry tomorrow
