A sketch over at Creative Craft World!

Hi all

Today is the beginning of another FAB challenge over on Creative Craft World, the lovely Sue has given us a gorgeous sketch to work from. There is no specific theme as long as you follow the sketch, you can flip it, rotate it do what you want as long as we can see the sketch on your card or layout! There is a chance to win a GDT spot for our next challenge.

Such a good job I was nice and prepared for this challenge as on Wednesday my 14 year old son Zaid got knocked over by a van!! He is so lucky to have escaped with only cuts and bruises and a broken wrist!!

He was very sensibly crossing the road at a pedestrian crossing and waited for the lights to turn red. Once the green man appeared he started to cross but some idiot in a white transit van decided to use the bus lane to under take all the stationary cars and went through the light on red and hit Zaid!!! Don't know how he managed not to get worse injuries (but thank God) as he was thrown about 8 - 10 metres from the crossing!

He is still shook up, as are we all, my 8 year old witnessed it and won't stop crying poor little thing!

Anyhow, here is a travel journal I made from paper bags for a family we are friends with who are emigrating to New Zealand after spending 4 months travelling around Europe!


  1. what a fabulous project ... your friends will love it.
    Sorry to hear about your sons experience - you must all be shaken by it... its a blessing he wasn't hurt more badly.
    You take care and love to you all
    Lisa ;)

  2. Oh my Sara, what an awful thing for your son to go through, it is good he didn't get more seriously hurt.I do feel for you,time is a good healer.
