Papertake Challenge #17

Hello everyone, thank you so much for all your lovely comments this week, i'm feeling tons better after my little bit of time out :) The problems i've had with J have been on going for about two years, sometimes it feels like it's never going to end, i know our situations not unique, it's part of growing up i guess...but he's pretty extreme at times and it's HARD. Anyway he's been staying with friends this week so maybe the break for us both will help...here's hoping !

Well i've not done much at all in the way of crafting but did make this for one of my lovely blogging friends following the sketch at Papertake weekly...here's Dawny's sketch
And my take on the sketch
Image is Gretel, a new release from CC designs..available at Diestodiefor
Papers are October Afternoon 'Ducks in a row' ..available at The Craft Emporium
Flowers are stamped onto pp using a clear stamp set by Stampendous
