Sketch Challenge - To London by Paddle Steamer

I love sketch challenges! This one has really helped me to record the trip I took last week. I am "in the middle of" creating a page with mainly journaling about the day - and this will complement it well. Thanks for the challenge as always.

What a fabulous way to see familiar places from a completely different angle! The paddle steamer Waverley took us on a 9 hour voyage down the Essex coast and into London, arriving at Tower Bridge in the dark, with the whole city lit up to greet us! On the way we passed so many wonderful sites - the elegant wind turbines of the Gunfleet Array, the Thames Barrier, the QE2 Bridge and Canary Wharf. Spectacular!

    Wow, this is great and I love how you used the sketch. Wonderful photos and interesting journailng and I really like your little embellishments! Super layout.
    I love how you've used the sketch, Hilary - I didn't realize we could move the pieces around! LOVE what you've done - I really like the way this looks! Love the title down the side of your page!
    Your photographs are always amazing. Lovely group of shots here. :)
    Great use of the sketch. Looks so well together.
    What a wonderful use of the sketch Hilary - I love your journaling AND beautiful photos!
    Love how you adapted this to 8.5x11
    What a great trip - you must have had such a wonderful time. Great use of the sketch - I like the way you 'filled in' with your journaling and title. Neat photos, too - I especially like the blended one.
