ScrapFriends Sketch Challenge #5

Hi all,

I just LOVE the sketch for the current challenge at ScrapFriends.  Here it is:

I love the big photo spread. I had a few photos in mind, and had them printed, but finally chose to enter the challenge with the following:

This is my eldest daughter. I took this photo on a spur one day recently whilst out for a walk, and I just think it encapsulates her so well in this moment of time. It is just so her.

And here are some close-ups:

Supplies: cardstock (AmericanCrafts); paper (PinkPaislee, Echo Park, Prima packaging); doilies; flowers (Prima, Green Tara, Kaiser); layered stickers (Basic Grey); fairy (Prima); lace; stitching; twine & butterfly pin (jillibean); pearls (Kaiser, KanbanCrafts); tissue tape (Tim Holtz); punches (Stampin' Up, punchbunch) butterfly die-cut (Stampin' Up); glimmermist (Tattered Angels).

I just LOVE this paper from Pink Paislee with it's soft pink and bold yellow. I cut around one side of the blooms then slipped the misted doilies in underneath before adding more flowers and elements. The cardstock underneath you can't see so well, but after trialling many colours, I finally decided to paint some glimmermist around the edge of some white cardstock for just a soft pink to peek out.

The challenge ends September 30.

Thankyou so much for popping by.
