SOUS Sketch Reveal Day

It's Friday
It's Midsummer's Day
It's Sketch Reveal Day
And here is my interpretation of
 this week's sketch

The great sketch from our Sandi

Pont is bridge in French.
The Alexander III Bridge in Paris

The papers I have used are the
"Bonjour" Collection from Kaiser.
I have been hoarding these
papers forever, because
 I knew I would get back to
 Paris one day.
 So happy to finally use them.

Lots of fussy cutting of
 the little flowers on the
 papers and
 the butterflies.

One of which I have placed
 in a little frame I made myself
 using a 
Martha Stewart mould
and Air Dry Clay - so easy.
You'll be seeing a lot of these
 little frames, because I can
 make as many as I want
 for a fraction of the cost - cool fun!
I have tied a wee bit
 of green organza ribbon,
from my stash,
to the little frame.

I have used the
 Martha Stewart
 Punch Around the Page
"Rain Drop"
The large pre-made flower is
Prima "Eminence"

The photo (of moi)
 has been matted 4 times,
 and actually reminds me
of the way we used to get
 our school photo's presented
 - now, that was a
long time

The title alphas are
 Making Memories "Diva Shimmer"
 Basic Grey "Basics Micro Mono"

American Crafts black cardstock.

This layout was made in a hurry,
to meet the DT deadline,
 having spent four more
 days in Paris than we
The first of many layouts
featuring our trip.
But, I have learnt my lesson
 from my London trip last year.
 I'm NOT going to be doing
 the whole album with the same
collection of papers!!!!
Although I have done our
Fiji photo's with one collection
 - Kaiser's "Tropicana" Collection.
I will need to get them up on
 my blog for you to see, soon.
Anyway, you must now
 head on over to the
and see what my fellow DT girls
 have done with the sketch
 - we have some amazing
talent on our Team.
Hopefully, you will also
get a chance to try out the
sketch yourself. We would
 love to see your
See you over at SOUS.
