This (Lets Get Sketchy)

Hello, just a quick post today as we're heading over to Wanaka (next lake over) for two nights.  What a mission trying to get ready to go for 5 people for only two nights!

It's our third week reveal over at Lets Get Sketchy, and we had a gorgeous sketch by Laura Whitaker. I scrapped a couple of photos from Brielle's 3 month photo shoot (that I took).  I used Webster's Pages Sweet Routine, which I'm using for her monthly album.  I added some gold tissue paper and pink fabric, and I ruffled both on my sewing machine.  I wanted to keep this layout soft and girly, so I focussed on using the more neutral and light pink papers.

The gold thickers title and heart are from Maggie Holme's Open Book (Crate Paper).  I loved the arrangement of the banners in the sketch and matched them.

I love how pretty the gold tissue paper ruffles turned out.  The doilies and wood veneer feathers are from my stash.

And here is the sketch.

I'd love to see you play along!
