Friends are the Sunshine of Life. **SOUS**

TGIF!!! I got a new grand baby this week…a big healthy boy and I can’t wait to see him….I hope to go see him this weekend J Today it is Stuck on U Sketches reveal too!!!! My first reveal this year for SOUS and it is a beauty of a sketch too! This weeks sketch was designed by our lovely Designer/co-creator Nanne Harry. I used all goodies from my stash and made the silk flower. The photo is my two nieces…couple of cuties! I did lots of yummy layers and distressing on this layout, tucked in a few pieces of Dusty Attic and some ripped apart a Prima piece with the flowers and ribbon on it.


Here you can see all the distressed layers. I added some liquid pearls and pearl gems in to finish off the layout. The quote title is a velum piece also from my stash. I need to start to use MORE stash to make room for the new CHA releases coming up  J

 
Close up of the hand dyed silk flower that I made. I tucked in more pearls swirls and some Tattered Angels pieces. The leaves are from DustyAttic and they are one of my favourite pieces from them. I painted them white, added some ink to the edges and then added some Rock Candy crackle paint to them.



 Ok well that is it for today. Don’t forget to head on over to SOUS for tonnes of inspiration, come and play with us and you have a chance at a gorgeous prize. Thanks again for stopping by and have a great weekend everyone! Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
