One last sketch for the week

Here is one last sketch for the week.  This is one of the June PageMaps by Becky Fleck.

I changed it up a bit. Here's how:  I flipped it upside-down, turned an 8.5x11 2-pager into a 12x12 1-pager, changed the sizes and layouts of the photos, and moved the title toward the bottom of the layout.

I took these pictures while travelling in Scotland in May 1997.  This little statue immediately caught my attention.  The story is even more incredible.  You can read a more complete account here.  I didn't include any journaling on the layout, since the sign does a good job of summing it up:

John Gray
Master of "Greyfriars' Bobby"
In 1858, John Gray, master of
"Greyfriars' Bobby," was buried in the
grave marked with a red granite stone
on the left-hand side of this walk. -->
"Greyfriar's Bobby," after 14 years
of faithfull devoition died on the grave
(and) was buried nearby."

Here are some close-ups of the embellishments on the left side of the page.

As promised, there will be a giveaway as part of this post.  The contest will actually span the entire week.  Here's what you need to do:  Create a layout or card based on one of the two sketches posted this week.  Then, come back to this post and leave a comment which includes a link to your project.  I will pick a winner next Sunday.  And the prize?  All the products needed to recreate both of the projects that I posted this week.  (There might be some other goodies thrown-in, too. ;)

Good luck!  I'm looking forward to seeing your creations!!
