I started this layout at the weekend… then discovered the challenge that I was entering this for had a sketch that you had to follow so I had to start again lol… and set this aside.

I decided to finish it off tonight in the workshop, whilst I pondered over what else I’m going to do with the recipe swap cards 🙂

It’s a layout of my Daughter …. She’s a real hoot lol
