SOUS Sketch Reveal


It's Sketch Reveal Day
 over at
My interpretation...

The Sketch
 by our own

The lovely photo is my
 darling son and his
 lovely girlfriend.
 Such a happy couple!

And. Drumroll....
 I have finally used some
 My Mind's Eye
 "Lost & Found Two - Breeze"

I have had the whole collection of
 Lost & Found Two - yes all four sets,
 since they were released!
 I just couldn't cut them up.
They are such gorgeous papers.

So, I gave myself a kick in
 the butt and used them.
Why are we so protective of
 pieces of paper?

But I am so happy I did.
Loving the way this page turned out.
It frames the photograph perfectly!

The border and corner punches
 are from 
Martha Stewart
 "Vintage Doily".

The circular die is from
 "Dotty Lace Circle Doily",
 which I moved off centre from
 the sketch to house the
 oval hot air balloon element
 cut from the papers.

I replaced the hearts on the
 sketch with wee bunches
of red roses from my stash.
The brown fronds are a
Marianne Creatables Die
"Leaves Set".

Even son said it was OK.
Now that's a compliment from him!

Don't forget this month's prize
 over at SOUS for taking part
 in any of the challenges
during July.
Kindly donated by our own

Now, to head on over to the 
 and see what my fellow
 DT girls have done with
 the sketch.
Thanks for dropping in today.
