Sketch Time - Simon Says Stamp DT

Hello lovely peeps,
A day of Christmas shopping didn't help much with finding my Christmas spirit and the John Lewis Christmas display left me feeling really peculiar! 
From a distance it looked lovely with lots of hanging 3D Christmas trees & baubles etc dangling right down through the centre of the store, & I looked over the banister from the upper floor to see if they went all the way down and OMG my eyes went all weird as if everything went a bit woozy & I had this horrible knot in my stomach so I stepped back quick & tried to refocus! Thinking that was really odd I stupidly had another look to see if it happened again, & it did make me feel the same again! I then told my friend Sophie to look over the banister saying it made me feel "weird" and I really stupidly looked over it again with her, will I never learn lol. As Soph felt the same we found our friend Zoe and get her to peek over the banister, only this time I was determined not to look & I actually resisted lol, and you guessed it Zoe felt the same!
Very bizarre!!!
