Sketchabilities #55 and Swirlydoos Kit

Good Evening Everyone,

I have two layouts to share today. My two layouts were created with Swirlydoos August Kit. My first layout entitled "8 months" is of my daughter from her 8 month photo session. Her current favorite color is purple so I decided to do a layout of her color choice. For this layout, I used sketch # 55 from Sketchabilities. I do not start my DT term until October but I couldnt help but play when u see the gorgeous sketches.  I also played in the Resist Challenge at Swirlydoos and I created my own pattern paper with a script stamp, clear embossing powder and pomengranite glimmermist. I had so much fun creating the resist, I made extras.. LOL!

"Your Eyes"

I finally had time to post a layout I've completed a long time ago. It was orginally created with the color scheme for "Color Combos Galore #206 challenge and the Sketchabilities Challenge. I was unable to take pictures in time with all the family emergencies going on. I am still thankful the Sketchabilities Challenge was still open. This is my first time participating and I love the playful sketch. I used a mixture of Swirlydoos Kits with more product used from the Aug Kit. The color scheme was very new too me and I love how it turned out. Anytime I play with glimmermist I am extremely happy.

This layout is a photo of my daughter at 3 months old. I love how pretty and soft her eyes were as a baby. For this layout, I flipped the Sketchabilities Sketch.



Please excuse my blog too. Its underconstruction for a blog facelift. I am trying to dedicate more time into my blog and change the things I dislike. So please be patient with me.

Have a good evening!
