You (Lets Get Sketchy)

Hello! Well its time for the Week 3 August sketch over at Lets Get Sketchy.  I just love sketches as they push my creative boundaries, and challenge me to be true to my style, whilst being influenced by the sketch. 

This week we had the following awesome sketch to play with, designed by the amazingly talented and lovely Ashley Horton.

I decided to do a layout about my son this week, as I can very easily get caught up in pretty girly products!  This layout is all about Sam and his glasses, which he got earlier in the year!  I took this photo at the optometrist, and these are the glasses that he picked out himself and loved. Its so hard to get a genuine smile from Sam when I take his photo, but I just love the joy in his face in this one! 

I decided to cluster all my elements around the photo, with a diagonal sprinkling of ink and wood veneers.  I used a Studio Calico kit, and added the glasses die cut, Crate Paper tag, Jillibean Soup boy sticker and title, Glitz washi tape, die cut leaf and the Maggie Homes for Crate frame.  I just love that matrix-movie style patterned paper that I used for my background.

I can't wait to see your take on the sketch!

Be blessed
