"George Washington's Garden" at Let's Get Sketchy

Hi There, hope you all had a fun and creative weekend :)
Today I have got something different for you here.
We all know that George Washington was the
 1. President of U.S.A, but  have you ever thought
 about where his  family came from?
...yes I know... I'm from Norway, but when I lived in England
I was so lucky to live not far from Sulgrave Manor,
where his family/ancestors had their home before they
left England a few generations before he was born.
You can read all about Sulgrave Manor here
if you want to find out more :)
Anyway the last time we  visited Sulgrave Manor
I took a few photos. It is a fantastic place to visit with
a lovely garden and visiting center, and  lots of  activeties
for kids.
Here is the LO I made with a photo from Sulgrave
It is Team A's turn this week at Let's Get Sketchy
Below is the sketch made by Ashley
As you can see, the kids are having fun and behind them is a
bust of George Washington


 I started out trying to keep it clean and simle, but I
couldn't resist using the white Dylusion spray and made
a few splodges ;)
All papers are from Basic Grey "Out of Print"
Thanks for taking time and popin in and leaving
a comment :)
Have a wonderful week :) :) :)
