The Scrapbook Store | Feb Sketch..

Hello Everyone!  I am back today to share with you a wonderful sketch challenge over at The Scrapbook Store.  I love Nadia's sketches because they always challenge me!  LOL!  And this time was no different.  Here is the sketch..



And my simple version of it!..

 
"You Make Me Happy"

products used: cs - Kaisercraft; pp - Pebbles (Family Ties), Bella BLVD; other - Pebbles (Family Ties); Accent & Phrase stickers, chips; Manor House leaves, glimmermist (sunflower); tools - silhouette portrait, EK Success punch, machine stitching.


This layout was created from my January DT kit.  It had so many gorgeous Pebbles papers and embellishments in it!!  I really fell in love with the Pebbles "chips" and I wanted to make them a feature on my page.
 



I machine stitched a semi circle directly onto my cardstock and then layered the chipboard pieces and fussy cut paper flowers.  I moved them around until I found a colour balance I was happy with and then added the silhouette cut stars as an extra punch.  :)
 


And sometimes the simplest of phrases can mean the most.  The title and journaling not necessarily original but most definitely heart felt..

I hope you will join in with the challenge.  I would really love to see your version of this amazing sketch.  Thanks for visiting..x
