SOUS Sketch Reveal

Hi everybody
I'm quickly passing through
 today with my interpretation
of our newest sketch
 over at
I am in the middle of
moving home - again!!!!
I won't bore you with the
 details, suffice to say
 - I'm exhausted!!!!

The wonderful sketch
by our Nanne...

I love these gorgeous
 blooms from Prima
- they have been in my
 stash for ever.

They team so well with
 the stunning
 "Serenity" collection
of papers from
 Bo Bunny.

The title is using
 Authentique's "Petite Type Circle"

The butterflies are a
 7 gypsie's stamp from the
 "Nottinghill" set.

The wee trinket is Bo Bunny

Was I really that thin
 just seven years ago
 - must do something about it
 - soon!!!
Now head on over to the
 and view the gorgeous
 work of my fellow
DT girls - great inspiration for us all.
See you there.

Hello Ladies - and Gents
(Sorry Curt!!)
I was browsing the Net (as one does)
and came across a great sketch
 over at
This is a technique I have been
 wanting to try for some time,
 having seen it on numerous
 layouts around the blogs.
The sketch, below,
was the perfect opportunity.

The March Sketch from
Yes, I know I'm cutting it a bit fine....

The papers are from the
 "Little Black Dress"
collection from Basic Grey.

The Flourishes are a die from
Marianne Designs.

I took this candid photo of
 gorgeous daughter when we
 were out for lunch last Christmas.
One of those fluke photo's
that was not at all planned
- one of my fav's now.
I never thought I would
 be able to scrap it - never say never....

Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page
 "Vintage Floral"

Sparklets from Kaiser "Ebony"

Flowers by Prima
 "Innoscence 2" (their spelling, not mine!)
 and "Gillian Cinder"

Title alpha from October Afternoon
 "Mini Market"

The squares on the background
 are cut 1.5 inches and distressed.
 Quite time consuming,
and then you cover half of them,
 but happy to have given this technique a go.

Really happy with this page,
 and, thank you to
 for the sketch.
