Falconers, another Stuck?! Sketch and a little more...

The second Stuck?! sketch for September is now ready.

It is a great sketch to work with, and I used it for this layout.

30 km from where we live you find Ribe Vikingcentre. My DH find the life of the vikings very interesting, so this summer we visited the centre. One of the attractions at the centre is the falconers on the photos.

I didn't want the layout to be too feminine with a lot of flowers and so on, so instead I made these 3 felties.

I cut out the falconers from the photos and attatched them on a couple of tags made of corrugate. Bird and branch is a StampinUp punch.

On our way to Ribe Vikingcentre we wondered why there were so many police on the roads, and the closer we came to the vikingcentre the more police. When we reached our destination we found out why.

The first thing we saw outside the centre was this car - and even more police,then we realized that a very famous woman had got the same idea as us. The car is called Crown 1 and belongs to the Queen of Denmark ;-D

This was a big surprise, and of course we took a lot of photos. She was just walking among tourists, the staff from the centre, policemen, horses, people dressed like vikings and geese ;-D

- and here you see her majesty the Queen of Denmark

The royal family - especially our fantastic crown prinsess Mary (from Tasmania) - is very, very popular, so it was quite an experience to get that close to the Queen and her husband Prins Henrik.

Right now it is a real autumn night here in DK,
it is storming and raining outside.
How is the weather where you live?

  1. Beautiful page and I love the story of the day you went there.
    The weather is still pretty warm here in sunny California USA. I'm really for some fall weather soon though. :)

  2. Great felt buttons and I love your photos on the tags. Great LO.

  3. Hi Kimic, Thanks for your lovely comments. The doilies are actually a tablecloth cut up. Some were from my girlfriend and I found a tablecloth in an Op Shop (a second hand shop). You then cut out each circle to create these little doilies. Would you have shops like that? You can also buy them from Etsy store on the internet already coloured. Maybe try there as they ship worldwide too.
