Are you ready for this weeks sketch? I know I’ve said it like a gazillion times before (yeah….I know…that’s a lot), but I LOOOOOOOOOOVE how much fun you girls are having with the sketches each week! I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE looking on the Facebook Fan Page and seeing all of your inspiring creations. More than once I’ve let out a gasp, (in a good way), or a giggle, or an ooooooh and ahhhhhhh, and my kids tell me that I must be looking at layouts again. Yeah. They know me. They know me well.
I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do for this weeks sketch and as I was perusing through my photos, I came across these photos of my Sarah, that I haven’t scrapped, and then I knew immediately that these photos would be perfect for this weeks sketch.
I built the sketch based around the photos, because I had a hard time choosing just one of them. Her facial expressions are priceless, and totally her.
I also wanted to be sure that I had a good amount of space to tell the incredible story behind these photos. Even though I thought I had left quite enough space, I actually had to shrink the font, cause there was so much to be said. I just wanted to make sure that this moment was documented so that when Sarah has teenagers of her own, they can see what an inspiration their mother was at their age.
Now I have to tell you that I was more than delighted when I found out that today’s steal was going to be Prima Flower Kits. In fact I dare say that my heart skipped a beat when I saw all of the glorious blossoms to choose from. I suppose on this layout I got a tad carried away with the pretty flowers and included pieces from 3 of the different kits offered.
I have to tell you though, the white kit? It’s the BOMB! I really, *really* wanted some purple flowers to sort of tie in the whole color scheme of the layout and it was as if I was struck by a lightning bolt from the heavens above when I realized I could take the white flowers and….drum roll….INK THEM! YESSSSSSS! Custom flowers….perfect for whatever you’re creating!
In fact the flower customizing fun didn’t end there. I couldn’t resist and had to make a card for my hunny and had to customize 2 of the white flowers to match the papers that I was working with. Sure it’s a little fru-fru- with the flowers, but hey, at least he was thought of, right?
I know that you are also waiting on pins and needles for the winner of mojo #6 . Thanks to Random.Org, this weeks winner of a little scrappy goodness is Maria-Anne Murray! **hooray Maria-Anne!**
Her layout is one of the ones that elicited a giggle from me and I actually made my girls come and look.
I positively love how she is so theme oriented on the layout right down to the journaling in a swirl!
