Tartan Friday

When I saw the tartan in the June Bug papers of Basic Grey, I knew it was perfect for this couple from Sugar Nellie and I couldn't resist paper pieceing their scarf and doggy coat. I've used the sketch on Papertake Weekly although the image was slightly too big but I'm sure I'll be forgiven for it overlapping.
It wasn't fun backing up the PC and I've made a promise to myself not to leave it so long.
