Sweet Girl ~ SOUS Sketch Challenge ~ 11-25-2011

Oh, my! This has been such a busy but wonderful week! I hope that all of you who celebrated Thanksgiving had a fabulous day! As I write this it is Wedneday night, I am soooo tired from cooking and cleaning my heart out for my family tomorrow that I almost forgot to write my post. :)  So I will keep this short and sweet!

This time at Stuck on U Sketches time we have a great sketch from Pagemaps. I followed it closely .... even threw in the clouds which is rare for my pages. That was kind of fun, though!  My papers are Prima's Romantique which are gorgeous but did not photograph to their true color or quality. They are just fabulous in person.

I've used my Cricut for the background marquee, the clouds and the scalloped circle as well as the plain circle. Yeah, me! Then I have added a Dusty Attic piece (french flourish DA0273,) Melissa Frances resin bird (MF CX830,) Glitz Design and Prima alphas and Websters Pages bloomers. Then I mixed in some miscellaneous pearls and crinkle ribbon as well as my MS butterflies. In addition to my Cricut, there is a ton of fussy cutting on this one which I always enjoy!

The clouds were embossed with the Divine Swirls embossing folder and enhanced with some TH inks, Rock Candy Stickles and Diamond Dust. My Dusty Attic piece was painted with Glimmer Mist Chalkboard in Cranberry Zing.

My cute photo is of dggd Peyton who went to the Parade with her Papa. I photographed this one Before I did the journaling .. in case I messed up (did not) but I did forget to re-shoot it!

Thanks for dropping by .. sorry for the shortened post but I am sure you understand. I hope that the weekend does not find you too busy to run on by Stuck on U Sketches  and see what the rest of the design team has done! Cannot wait to see your take on the sketch! Have a great weekend!
