SOUS Challenge

This weeks guest designer was Sandy Winsor. Below is the sketch we were to follow. I LOVE this sketch!!
For all the scrolls I used Storybook and Plantin Schoolbook, and welded them in my Gypsy. The circle is also from PS. The mat w/ tag, is from PS and A Childs Year welded together. The butterflies are from Hannah Montana. The teal paper is from Walmart, that I spritzed w/ water, crumpled, painted,inked w/ Distress inks and then ironed. WHEW!! I love how it turned out, unfortunetly I then covered most of it up. Oh well. I also used some Perfect Pearls. I just got these and already LOVE them!! Flowers are Primas w/ pearl brads from Reccolections. I used my I Rock for the bodies on the butterflies. All other paper is from K & Co. This is my daughter Bethany in kindergarten.
Thanks for stopping by, Hope your day is great!!
