The Great Outdoors

A month and a half since the last post... oops....  time to catch up a bit :-)
Last weekend, I went to the ATDML retreat in Suffolk.  I got back late Sunday and we flew off to Paris very early on Monday, so this is the first chance I have had to share the pages I got done!
This one is done using the current sketch from My Creative Sketches:

and here is my take on it:

 I didn't like the sketch at first look, I felt that the large block on the right was just too... well, large and blocky!  But I thought about it and decided it could be a lattice to reduce the in-your-face-ness of it.  So I cut a lattice on the Silhouette and packed it into the kit when I was preparing the papers etc.  When I actually came to make the page, I thought I would also try flipping the sketch and I like it much better this way :-)
The papers are from Maja Design, apart from the plain blue from Craft Creations.  I cut the title with an alpha die, from either Memory Box or Dienamics, not sure which.  It just fit across the page!!  The title comes from the fact that we never go outside at a retreat, too busy!  But we were tempted out by a photo opportunity LOL.
This is my second attempt at scrapping this photo and I am much happier with it than previously :-)
