Wild & Free (Paper Bakery)

Now that I'm feeling better I'm finally up to scrapping for myself, and not just having to scrap to meet design team commitments.  So I decided to play along with the latest Sketch Challenge #15 over at the Paper Bakery blog.  Here is the awesome sketch designed by Juliana Michaels:

I was keen to use one large photo on my layout, so I printed a Christmas photo from last December of my kids at our lake beach after Shaun and I had sung in a carol service.  We had fish & chips by the lake after the service.  I used my Art Fair September kit, which has to be my favourite kit of all so far.  It has the perfect mix of papers and embellishments from Glitz Design, Bella Blvd and My Minds Eye, as well as awesome exclusive stamps and flair.  I purchased the cardstock add on to stretch it even more.

Here is my take on the sketch, I loved it so much I didn't add much:

And a close up of my circles, which I cut on my Cuttlebug with a new die from Stampin' Up.  This was the first time I've used it so I was very excited!

Thanks for looking.  We're very happy here this weekend as its a long weekend in New Zealand!

Be blessed
