Party - SOUS Sketch Reveal

Whoo Hoo, it's Friday.
Time for another great sketch reveal from
 Stuck On U Sketches.
We have a lovely sketch from
our Nanne to play with, and,
boy, did I step out of my comfort zone
for this one....

Nanne's wonderful sketch...

The photo's are from my son's
 30th Birthday
- my baby is 30!!!!

Photo of darling daughter too.

I have used the "Vintage Blue"
 collection from Glitz
 and some "Vintage Blue"
 Paper Layers, which I have
 distressed within an inch of their lives.
 It was fun though...hee hee.

 A humble piece of string to
 hang my banner on, which
 I cut using
 Spellbinders "Marvelous Squares"
and the letters are Prima
 "Tiny Alphabet Stickers"

The flowers are Prima
and the trim is MME
 "Stella & Rose Decorative
 Trim - Hattie Boy"

I have used two chippies
 from Twiddleybitz
 "Chandelier" and "Oval Frame".
 On both I have used
"Antique Gold" Rub 'n' Buff
and white paint.

To frame the photo's I
 used Spellbinders
 "Decorative Labels One"
and "Labels One" and
 "Grand Scalloped Rectangles"
 for the striped background.

The wee vintage button at
 the bottom is by Basic Grey.

I had fun with the distressing
on this layout, but I don't
 think it is really my style,
 but, hey, think
outside the box - right!!
Now, head on over to
and see what my fellow DT girls
 have done with the sketch,
and then have a go yourself.
You have two weeks to upload
 your layout and be in
with a chance of Top Three.
We would love for you to take part.
And, don't forget,
our next sketch reveal,
 on 1st February,
will be our
100th Sketch,
and we have a fantastic Hop,
 with lots of Candy,
 to celebrate.
So, be sure to mark
 your diary for that.
In the meantime,
hope to see you
 over at SOUS!
