Stuck?! Sketches August 1st DT Reveal

Hi there!

Wow, here we are in August already!! And a new month means a new sketch challenge at Stuck?! Sketches!! The lovely Laura Whitaker has designed another awesome sketch for us to work with...

And here is my layout that I created with this sketch...

These photos are of my daughter Abigail with my nephew Charlie. My kids absolutely adore their cousin - they love playing with him and doting on him. He is very much loved by us all!

I had a lot of fun with this layout! The Heidi Swapp Hello Beautiful patterned papers were perfect for my layout!

Here are a few closeups of my layout so that you can see the details...

I had fun fussy cutting these flowers from the patterned paper and I love how they co-ordinate perfectly!

I kept my embellishing fairly simple with a couple of butterflies, word strips, enamel dots and some ink splatters.

For the circle element in the sketch I decided to use a pie chart! I cut this on my Cameo using a cut file from The Cut Shoppe. I love how I was able to include a few different patterned papers on the layout without it looking too busy by backing them behind the pie-chart! The word 'love' I die-cut with a Heidi Swapp die (It originally said 'lovely', but I wanted it to say 'love' so I cut the 'ly' off).

If you haven't done so already, I hope that you'll pop on over to the Stuck?! Sketches blog and take a look at the gorgeous layouts created by the other design team member - they are all super inspiring!! We would love YOU to join us this month by creating a layout inspired by this sketch and linking it up by the 29th August! The randomly chosen winners will receive a prize from one of our very generous sponsors:

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and for your lovely comments also!
