XO | Stuck?! Sketches May 15th Challenge

Hi friends!

It's time for a new challenge at Stuck?! Sketches and Laura has designed another beautiful sketch for us to be inspired by! Let's take a look...

Here's my take on the sketch...

I used the beautiful Simple Stories 'Love & Adore' collection to document a photo of my eldest daughter and I taken when we were on a picnic recently.

Using the sketch as a guide, I added some layers of patterned paper, as well as a doily, to create a matt for my photo to sit on. Once I added my photo, I was ready to embellish.

I love the florals in this collection, and they were perfect for this very 'girly' page! I tucked one of the floral die cuts under the top left hand corner of the photo.

I created a pretty cluster of embellishments on the bottom right hand corner of the photo that includes a Charms Creations heart, a flair button from D-lish Scraps, and another floral die cut. Charms Creations is sponsoring this challenge, so make sure you pop on over to their store to check out their lovely embellishments, and play along for your chance to win a store voucher!

I decided to move my title down to the bottom right hand corner of the page, just because I liked how it looked there! I used some chipboard stickers from the 'Love & Adore' collection for my title, and then I embellished around the title with a couple more stickers from the collection.

Lastly I added some journaling, and then I finished the page off with some black ink splatters and enamel dots.

If you haven't done so already, I hope that you'll head on over to the Stuck?! Sketches blog and take a look at the fabulous layouts created by my fellow design team members! We'd love you to play along with us by creating a layout based on this sketch! Link up your layouts on the Stuck?! Sketches blog by May 29th to be in the running to win a prize from one of our very generous sponsors:
