Hi all,

Wish my post title was actually what the weather was like here!  Instead, it's a drabby, rainy day!  Yuck!  Pretty much what's on the menu for most of the week.

Today's layout was submitted at Colorful Creations for their May Sketch-a-Thon, May 20 (PaulaMay).  You can see the challenge here.

Here's the sketch:

Doesn't this look like a fun sketch?  Well.... it is!!
Here's what I created:
Our cute niece when she was 11 years old.  

Supplies used:
Paper: Kraft, Colorbok
Stitching Template: Paper Pizazz
Sharpie Markers
Rick Rack
Glitter Gems: Home Made
Twine: Home Made
Decorative Edge Scissors
Ink: Color Box Tangerine
Title: From pp

I used a template for the background scallops.

The heart was distressed along the edges and twine wrapped around it several times and tied into a bow.  You can also see the faux stitching around each circle too.  I simply created the lines following a circle.

Here's my flower grouping.

 The edges of the title were distressed and matted.  Rick rack was added below that.
Using the stitching template, I created a border around the the page.  The outer edges of the Kraft paper were inked with orange.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
