The Best of Times **Sketchabilities**


Hello and welcome to my blog. It’s Sunday the 15th and another reveal day at Sketchabilities. I think sketch #47 was so gorgeous and this is my take on it. I used Prima Botanical papers and added a few Dusty Attic  and other goodies. The photo is my son and daughter when they graduated…..love this photo of them together and all dressed up.

In this close up you can see the machine stitching and the distressed layers. The DA fence was first painted with white dabber paint then I stamped and inked on it before I added some glossy accents.

I also used a DA vine that is painted then inked and glossy accents on it. I wanted to keep this layout fairly simple so the focus is mainly on the photo of my kiddys J

Well that is it for today, my Swirlydoos kit should be in the mail hopefully on Monday. I have so many layouts planned out in my head already for that kit. Don’t forget to swing by Sketchabilities and play along with this gorgeous sketch, you might be picked to a Guest Designer next month. Thank you so much for stopping in for a peek. I hope that you all have a fantastic week. Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
