Simple Pleasures

Hi there,

Well, I couldn't stand it any longer and just HAD to add layouts to by Blog!  It sure is taking some getting used to reverting back to something that is so slow and so different from my laptop!  
I'm missing my laptop terribly!!  :(

I have a layout to share that I completed yesterday and submitted at Let's Get Sketchy for their March Week 2 Sketch Challenge.

Here's the sketch:

And this is what I created:
This is our daughter after her graduation from Basic Training.  There were a few things she couldn't wait to get her hands on after Basic... coffee, sweets and her phone!!  :)

Supplies used:
Paper: Colorbok
Sharpie Marker
Flower Embellishment with Stick pins: Webster's Pages

This is the most beautiful embellie ever!!  I received it as part of a prize from a challenge and was waiting for that special layout to use it!  Finally, it matched perfectly with my page!  I did add a gem in the center of the flower.

I tweaked the sketch a bit.  The paper already had this cool sentiment on it, so I used it as my title.  I fussy cut around the bottom shape, following the outline of the paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
