SOUS DT Sketch Reveal - The London Eye

What time zone am I on?
Just back in Brisbane from Perth
Now we're off to Cairns at 4 in the morning!

Will be round to visit everyone
when we get back from Cairns
Never a dull moment....

In the meantime it's time
for the new Sketch Reveal over at
Totally perfect for my photo's from
The London Eye

The great sketch from our own Leah

Continuing with the Portobello Road collection
 of papers from Papermania
The title letters are
 Basic Grey "Jovial" micromono stickers

The great wee postcard is from 7 gypsies
and the London scene stamp
is by Crafty Individuals,
which I stamped on white cardstock,
cut it out, inked and tucked under the ribbon

I love this photo below,
which I did take myself, with the monument
 to Boudica (Google It) in front 
which sits on Westminster Bridge,
opposite Big Ben.
It gives some perspective of the
 size of The Eye.
The Queen Boudica monument is huge,
and The Eye is on the opposite bank
 of the Thames - very impressive 

Some photo's taken from inside
our Pod. Our next door neighbour Pod,
and the monument, on the opposite bank
 of the Thames, to the RAF (Royal Air Force).
I grew up in the RAF

Martha Stewart "Deco Fans" PATP

Handmade flowers from
Retro Flower Punch by EK Success
Little Roses from Hobby House
Green flourishes from Cheery Lynn
 "Victorian Romance Flourish"
which I have chopped in half
 and used either side of the flowers,
 kinda like foliage

Photo above shows Big Ben
 and the Houses of Parliament
from the highest point of The Eye.
 We could also see Buckingham Palace,
which is the photo below Big Ben on the layout,
though due to distance, it wasn't so clear.
But how about the zoom on our modern cameras,
couldn't have gotten these photo's
 a few years ago...
Daughter and I inside the Pod,
 again the photo's are dark, it was dusk...

Totally loving this layout....

Now, head on over to
Be amazed at the beautiful creations
from my fellow DT members
Have a go at the sketch yourself,
we love to see what different
 interpretations are out there

We will all come by and visit with you

See you soon

I love how you interpreted the sketch and brought the wheel element into the journal area. I have London Eye photos, hope you don't mind if I scraplift!

Leah (*BeeCherryLady*) said...

Wow Jane, this is SO good!
I adore the additions to the page and I think you are pretty much just killing it with that collection! You should send all the projects to the company so they can see them all! =)
So glad you liked the sketch, since it freaked everyone else out! LOL! =)
Hope you get adjusted...
