To Be Or Not To Be?

It's time for another reveal at My Creative Sketches and here is this month's lovely sketch.

My daughter recently went on a school-organised literature trip to the United Kingdom, and I just had to scrap these amusing photos of her mimicking the Hamlet statue at the Gower Memorial in Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of Sir William Shakespeare.

I used papers from one of my favourite collections from Webster's Pages - their Magical Wishes collection, and mixed those with some corrugated cardboard for dimension and texture, embellishing the layout with flowers and bark butterflies from Prima.

Here are a couple of close-ups.

Now, hop on over to the MCS blog to check out the amazing prize that's been put together for this month's winner, and also for more great inspiration, and come and play along with us! Thanks for taking the time to drop by! :)
