love **Scrapthat Sketch**

I have been a member of Scrapthat for a few months now. The designers are all so talented and full of inspiration. I have followed all of their blogs for some time now. This months kit “Love Notes” is no exception. The design team all made gorgeous layouts with the kit.  There is a giveaway on the Scrapthat blog right now, so go visit it for your chance to win a kit.  I am featuring one layout that is based on my layout today. It was made by Vicky Alberto. Her style is so gorgeous and full of inspiration. You can see her blog here. Both of our layouts are based on the “Love Notes” sketch by LG Belarmino. Here is Vicky's below.

My layout is called “love” and the photo is my daughter and her new son. What a sweet photo, so full of love. I used my February kit and this months sketch. I did a lot of stitching on this layout and distressing.
The flowers all came with the kit and the little bird cage is a stamp that came with the kit. I just stamped some cardstock and cut it out. I added some pearls to the smaller flowers.
In this close up you can see all the stitching that I did on the layers, after I distressed them. I curled up the edges on the layers for some dimension.
The love title and vine is from Dusty Attic. I first painted the chippys, then I inked with a rose and olive color. I then added some clear stickles for some shine. I really love the way the vines turned out.
I used a MS punch to make the circle and you can see another close up of the stitching and vines here.
Well thank you so much for stopping in for a peek. Don’t forget to go visit Vickys blog and Scrapthats blog. Be ready to be inspired. . I hope that you all have a fantastic weekend, be safe and stay warm. Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
