Sketchablilities #119

Sketchabilities sketch #119 is up.  The sketch has wonderful layers and embellishments.
Here is my take on the sketch.  The picture is of Lady and when I first met her.  At this point she had barely opened her eyes.  She was a beautiful soul.  She unfortunately was taken from this world too soon so I cherish every picture we have of her.

Thanks for looking.

Creative Scrappers #273

Creative Scrappers Sketch #273 is up. 
This sketch was a lot of fun.  I got the opportunity to use a few of my wallet-sized photos that I love and couldn't really use in a layout by themselves.  Of course the pictures look great as a trio.

Once Upon a Sketch July Challenge

The Once Upon a Sketch July Challenge is here.  
Here is my take on the sketch.  The layout is about my #1 love.  The journaling says:

I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow
And each road leads you where you want to go
And if you're faced with the choice and you have to choose
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you

My wish for you
Is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold

Sketchabilities #118

Wow.  Sketchabilities Sketch #118 is up.  There are lots of beautiful layers.
I used a picture of my daughter as a baby.  Truthfully, it is one of my very favorite pictures of her so I wanted to do it justice.

I did some stamping and misting.  I also used a beautiful birdcage stencil for texture.
