Kathy here with my version of the August Sketch Challenge. Here's the sketch Holly picked for us to work with:
I took some liberties with this sketch, first turning it, then using shapes rather than circles. That's the beauty of starting with a sketch, it gives you the basics and you can dress it up as much as you like! Here's my version:
My baby girl turned fourteen a few weeks ago, I'm really not sure where the time went! We had a small celebration on her actual birthday, with a party planned for later this month. She asked a couple of her closest friends over for some pizza and cake. They actually humored me and let me take a few pictures! The Echo Park Sweet Day collection was a perfect fit for my pictures!
I used a lot of the stickers from the Cardstock Element Stickers sheet to embellish my layout, including the big hot air balloon for my title. I added the alpha stickers to spell "fourteen" on the balloon.
Instead of circles, I cut a few doilies from some of my favorite papers using MFT Dienamics including the scallop doily, decorative doily and the dainty doily.
That's all for me today! Be sure to drop by Right at Home to get your Echo Park Sweet Day as well as some of the new goodies that are coming in every day!
