SOUS - Guest Designer

Happy Friday everybody
- wow, am I happy....
I am honoured to be the Guest Designer
for this fortnight's sketch challenge.....



This is sketch # 40, from Pagemaps
- and it's ROUND.....





Now, I don't mind a challenge
- but, round and FIVE photo's....
All of which I had no idea when
Nanne asked me to Guest Design.....!!!!




But, that's OK.....
I had these beautiful photographs
of DGD # 1 from Christmas (yes, beautiful
weather down here in December) 2008,
and saw the perfect opportunity to
scrap them together......


Papers used are Cosmo Cricket
"DeLovely" collection....
Bazzill cardstock.....
Pink swirls by Flourish With A Bling
"Jasmine, Hot Pink".....



Swirl bling by Zva Creative.....
Martha Stewart Border Punch - Scallop Dot.....
Nestabilities - Classic Oval, Classic Scalloped Oval
and Classic Scalloped Square.....


When the layout was finished,
it just didn't LOOK finished,
so I added the lace around the outside edge
- then I thought "it looks like a tea-tray".....

But, I like it anyway -
and it does kinda go with the colours
and theme of the layout - so it stayed....



So, there we have it.....
I wish to thank Nanne, Sandi and Leah
from SOUS for inviting me to be the
Guest Designer for October 15th, Sketch # 40......
It certainly was a challenge.....
Thanks girls.....
Hugs
Jane xx

This is SO pretty!
I love the pink on pink details and the white tiny scallops behind the smaller photos. I don't know why I like that so much but I guess its the small details that count in our craft!
And really, the photos are just too sweet! My little girl would just love that white dress!
