PFP - Teddy Bear's Picnic

I'm scheduling this post as about now I should be driving down from the Lake District (after a visit to BIL) to the Peak District for a few days with hubby in a yummy hotel!! Sorry if I didn't get to see your entry for PFPs sketch challenge last week but what I did see were yummy!!

This week's challenge has been set by one of our lovely, head teamies at PFP, Denise and her theme is Teddy Bear's Picnic - you need to use a teddy image on your creation.

Our sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen with the chance to win a £10 voucher to spend in her store - cor!!

I've been dying to try this colour scheme for ages and it seemed to go perfectly with this challenge.

The image was one in the HUGE stash of my special, long-time matey, Lesley , and when we had a play weekend recently, I picked him as perfect for the theme this week!!  I've coloured him with my Aqua Markers and paper-pieced his apron, slippers and scarf.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up, the chipboard flower and flutterby from John Lewis, and aren't they the cutest little cutlery brads!!!  Think they're Woodware but don't quote me on that.  Oh and the Blue spot papers are from the Wild Rose Studio spot pack which I purchased only recently from Crafty Emma's Store.  The big epoxy button in the middle of the top flower is from Making Memories.

I'll be back to do some commenting on your no doubt awesome creations for the challenge - meanwhile, I hope you manage to take a peek at the stunning DT cards this week (I've had a little preview of one or two!) and you so won't be disappointed!!

See y'all soon!!!

I just lost the comment I was writing here whilst I was typing it. How weird is that. I was saying how much I love your red polka-dot theme and how beautifully you coloured (and paper-pieced) my image. So beautifully in fact that it has encouraged me to try and use him myself! Love the cutlery and the sentiment too! BTW you won #42 at Sketch and Stash!!! Congrats! Love Lesley x
