Special Moments **SOUS**

Hello everyone and welcome. WOOT WOOT…TGIF!!!!!! And a long weekend too for me!  I took a couple of vacation days to hopefully start to decorate for the holidays. I got a smidgy done today, I hope more tomorrow 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 Page Maps. The photo is my son and family and if you look closely at my daughter in law, this family is about to get bigger. We are expecting a New Years Baby J weeeeeeeeeeee!!!! That is what the journaling is about on this page….the day they announced to a lot of the family that they were expecting. I used lots of Prima goodies from my Scrap That! Romantique kit, did some masking, sewing and the large flower is handmade form hand dyed silk.


I used a piece of Dusty Attic that is first painted then I used some glimmer mists on it and added some gems to finish it off. You can see all the distressing and water distressing that I have done in the corner. TIP: to water distress, just mist the paper..fold it how you like…then I dry it with a heat tool and ink it.

 In the top corner you can see the machine stitching and the masking that I did. Masking is one of my favs on a layout..it just adds to the layers.

 I used to make hand dyed silk scarves and I have lots of material left so now I make flowers for my layouts. They are just gorgeous I think! I have added some other blooms, a crystal swirl and a hand punched butterfly to it.



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

Gorgeous page, Shona. Great masking and distressing. Hope you are all decorated for Christmas. I have been at it all day .. although I am very tired from yesterdays activities. Feeling 30 people is not for the faint of heart!
