Sunday Sketch, March 29th

I'm a little early this weekend, but I doubt anyone will mind...right? I have been playing with the huge scalloped Bazzill cardstock paper and found that if you cut it up, it makes really cool photo mattes. I also wanted to use some of the many gorgeous flourishes I purchased from Niclin Designs on Etsy, so here is my sketch to include some of those little goodies you might be hoarding in your own stash. Oh...and of course there are butterflies too! Where would we be without using those on our Spring layouts?

I just found this older line from My Little Shoebox called Butterflies. Had to order it online from a little shop in Pennsylvania. I just love the richness of the color and the beautiful flowers and flourishes on the paper. It also makes a cool wedding paper (this is my husband and I 10 years ago, but we still look this young...okay maybe not so much). I added bling to the centers of the flowers on the printed paper to add more texture. The Etsy flourishes compliment the printed flourishes and add more dimension and I LOVE the little Prima Sweetheart flowers that came in the February Kit from My Creative Scrapbook. They match the paper perfectly. I also cut the butterflies from one of the other papers in this line from MLSB and am really psyched with how it turned out. I certainly had a blast playing with embellishments. Hope you will have some fun with the sketch too. Thank you for stopping by.

Check out this interpretation from my friend Lynn called Pieces of the Past! She did a fantastic job with the sketch and added so many wonderful elements. Her heritage layout of her mom is amazing and she used the gorgeous Bella Bella papers from My Mind's Eye that came in the March kit from My Creative Scrapbook. Please go to Lynn's blog Pretty Paper Swirls for more information on how she put this masterpiece together.

This wonderful layout about Paris is by my friend Pearl. She used vivid colors, large flowers and cut out vines on her interpretation of my sketch. The elements on her layout are striking and add some great texture. Wonderful work Pearl!
