Hugs (Lets Get Sketchy)

Hi all!  Today is our midweek reveal over at Lets Get Sketchy.  I made this layout several weeks ago with my August Hip kit.  Its a lovely photo of my Dad holding Brielle when he was visiting for Azaria's 5th birthday.

I loved the layers in the sketch (by the very talented Jenessa Franco), and I often scrap with a sketch when I start a new kit as it makes me cut into the paper.  The first cut is often the hardest!!  I really struggled to get a decent photo of this layout, I think its the overcast sky and rain that we're having.

A couple of close ups. This one shows layering with paper, Crate Paper Notes & Things Ephemera a Shimelle cork sticker, and some enamel dots (which I added to my kit from Twine & Ink).

I love the gold that is in this months kit, its more a silvery gold than yellow, and is so beautiful.

And here is the fun sketch:

Now I just have to share this sweet photo that I took of my girls on Saturday night.  Brielle is now 5 months old, and Azaria loves to have a cuddle before bed.

Make sure you play along!  Thanks for looking.
