June sketch layout for Practical Scrappers, Pia

Thanks for coming by today while I share another project done with one of the June sketches for Practical Scrappers.  It is so much fun being a part of this great group of paper artists!  

This page was really a pleasure to do! The bride is my grandson Jake's wife, Olivia.  I snagged these bridal photos off Facebook the day after the wedding! At the rate I'm going, I will have done more of Olivia than of my dgd Maddie who was married in March. They both were beautiful brides, so there are lots of pages in my future! (Love that top photo with the wild grass dangling from her lips. So typical of her fun, straightforward nature.)

For my page I used some of my fave Basic Grey Capella which I stocked up on last Spring. I knew that its natural colors were a must-have for me! The punchwork was done with my Martha Stewart deep-edged Floral Vine punch. And my flowers were made with my PC Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge. I layered them and then added some puff paint. Love how they turned out! Sorry about my crooked photo .. got in too big a hurry!

Hope to see you back tomorrow for the next Stuck on U Sketches reveal!
