Who is it going to be this time........

Peggy Schenkels - Walk with Me

Hi Shazza,
The picture features me as a two-year old walking the shore line with my dad and my granddad. I used a quote I've used before on an art journal page but which I thought went perfectly with this picture: "Every child needs a gentle hand, to guide them as they grow". Isn't that beautiful?
I've used a lot of different papers, something I don't do very often but I seemed to have no say in the matter this time. Do you ever have that feeling, as if you have absolutely no control over what you're making??? Strange ...
However, the LO just didn't come together until I added the seagulls and the beach embellies, that really finished off the page. I didn't have any of those embellies, so I drew all of them. Your challenges with all these criteria seem to always stretch my imagination that little bit farther Shazz, and I so thank you for that!

Peggy! Your page is a delight it really has come together beautifully. ! love the quote you used aswell, and it is just perfect to use with your pic of you and your dad and granddad. This is definately one of my new favourites of your! I love your hand drawn embellies, they look fantastic. I love this layout to pieces!! - Shazza


  1. Fabulous drawn embellishments Peggy, you are a clever chickie. A warm & tender photo, a marvellous title & quote, fab embellies, all add up to a wonderful LO.

  2. Absolutely know this feeling and have done that myself on occassions but you rocked it, the drawn embellies are just perfect and I don't mix manufacturers much either but this is super gorgeous, I love it. Love the fussy cutting. Melxx
