"She" - Sketchabilities DT

Good Morning...

I am excited to reveal my new DT layout for Sketchabilities Sketch #58. I truly enjoyed working with this sketch. I feel it pushed my creativity to another level. My layout was created with Glitz's Beautiful Dreamer papers, prima resins and the prima brick stamp. I also dugged my i-rock tool to create my bling flourish. The picture is of my daughter the first day of  school.

I will be keeping this blog post short today. We have a busy day scheduled to celebrate Halloween with babies. This is our first time trick or treating at the Detroit Zoo for the Zoo Boo event. Since the temperatures are very low today and rain for tomorrow. I figured this should satisfy two excited toddlers (4 and 2 yrs old).

Have a blessed day!

Sketchabilities Reveal!!

Good Morning Everyone,

I am so excited to reveal my first layout for Sketchabilities today. This layout is gorgeous that Karan designed for Sketch #57. So please visit the Sketchabilities blog today to see the design team beautiful layouts inspired by this sketch.

I've always wanted to create a "Faces of You" layout of my daughter. As I was flipping through her first day of school pictures from last year, I noticed the different faces she gave in one photo session. Since this sketch required three photos, it was a perfect design for my "Faces of You" layout.

For this layout, I used one of the new prima masks and Heidi Swapp Viva Pink Glimmermist to create my background layer. I also used the Martha Stewart deep heart scroll punch to create the black patterned strip from the Prima Printery Paper.

I also used the new dusty attic leaves#3 and leaves #2 which was altered with olive vine glimmermist and crackle accents. The rest of the flowers were from the Sept Swirlydoos kit and previous kits.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. Please go to the Sketchabilities blog for more inspiration for our design team. And if you have the time, please play along with Sketch #57.

On this nice fall evening, I am reflecting on how sweet my baby boy looked while sleeping. He was so adorable and peaceful during this time. I always wondered what they dream when they are this tiny. For my SwirlyHues layout, I created a layout of this precious moment. This is the first month for Swirlydoos SwirlyHues Challenge. You do not have to be a kit club member to participate. You just need to follow the all the requirements.

Here is my layout for the September Challenge:
