When Sandy came to stay

GB and I love company. We especially like it when company comes to stay. Even more, we love, love, love it when Sandy comes to stay. Sandy is one of our absolute dearest friends. We always have such a great time with Sandy and soooooo enjoy the pleasure of her company. And Sandy is a scrapper. A fabulous scrapper. A scrapper who inspires me. A scrapper with whom I can scrap easily and openly. When we were scrapping (which was most of the time LOL) I asked Sandy if she would mind using one of my sketches to create a layout for me to share on my blog. It's all very well for me to interpret my own sketches but I really wanted to see how someone else would interpret one. Luckily for me Sandy agreed and this absolutely stunning layout is what she came up with ...
