In the Summer..SOUS

Hello everyone and welcome. WOOT WOOT…TGIF!!!!!! And a long weekend too! <<doing the happy dance here J Ok so on with my layout for today! It is reveal day at Stuck on U Sketches and here is my layout and the sketch that I got to work with…it is by Designer/co-creator Sandi Clarkson. I love working with sketches so much and this is another amazing sketch from SOUS.  The photo is my son and daughter in law with the gorgeous Okanagan Lake behind them. I did lots of layers, machine stitching and inking on this layout.


I have two pieces of Dusty Attic stacked in the title section and I just love using these little butterflies on layouts now as a filler…are ya all getting sick of them yet LOL.

In this close up you can really see the machine stitching and the flower cluster and swirls. I tucked in some crinkle seam binding in the cluster.

And here is a shot of the layers of goodies and all the punching.


Ok well that is it for today. Don’t forget to head on over to SOUS for tonnes of inspiration. I just love how every take on one sketch is so different. Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you have a fantastic weekend.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
