SOUS DT Reveal

My favourite day, Friday, and reveal day over at Stuck On U Sketches....

I love this layout of Darling Granddaughter Erin, and had fun putting it together....





The sketch this week is from Alda Stevens over at Flying Unicorn, who is also sponsoring this month's giveaway for all participants of SOUS September sketches and die cut challenges - see end of post for details....

The sketch....



This was a beautiful sketch to work with and the "Uncommon" collection of Authentique papers were perfect for the style...



A lot of fussy cutting and distressing, but no inking....



The lace and pearls strip is by Recollections "Boutique Fleur", which I bought in the Michael's Store in Los Angeles, in January. Knew it would be perfect for something, and it goes well with the tones in the paper collection....



The little flowers are Prima and the large pink flower at bottom left is from Green Tara....



I cut the black flourishes on Cricut, Home Decor cart at 2 inches....



A handmade (not by me...LOL) crochet doily to finish....







I changed the photo to black and white, which I don't usually do, and I'm quite happy with the result....

Erin has beautiful blue eyes, but they totally clashed with the papers.....hee hee....

The black and white does lend a softer feel to the page....



Here is the giveaway sponsored by Alda Stevens over at Flying Unicorn - so make sure you participate this month of September to be in with a chance....



Here's the link again to the sketch at SOUS.... LINK




Looking forward to visiting your blogs and seeing your interpretations of the sketch....



Til next time......

Hugs

Jane! I love this! Did you have a hard time not inking your papers? I love distessed edges and I always ink mine, but can't seem to leave the edges naked! I love the look. Love all the fussy cutting and layering!
