Two challenges

Goodmorning everybody,

I woke up early today to take some photos of my new layout which I made last night for TWO different Challenges. The one is "Layout sketch 15th June" by Get Creative and the other one is "Father's Day Layout" by

To be honest I am not that much of a layout fan by I found this sketch really challenging. I used a photo that was take in January 1980 (Oh dear! I am getting old) and it is my favourite. My dad and I at the zoo... in South Africa where I was born. (I don't know if you can see the lions on the left)

...memories... Anyways! I hope you enjoy!

(There is also a card on the way...)
