Let's Capture These Sketches: Sketch #147 --- REVEAL!!!

Hello, everyone!!  Can you believe it?  Already in the month of September!! I'm so happy: the days are cooler, the air is crisp, and cropping season is just around the corner!!  WOO!HOO! It all officially starts on September 28/12, when a bunch of us will be scrapping to our little hearts' content at the Amsterdam Inn in Moncton, NB at a LCOM crop hosted by the fabulous Tanya Munn.  Can't wait!!

In the meantime, we are still in reveal mode for another week.  The LCOM girls had another great Natalie Roy sketch to work with:

And here is what I came up with:

Now, you have to understand that I used to hate tomatoes.  I didn't like the taste or the texture. But one day, I tasted one of my Maman's tomatoes, fresh from the garden... It was truly love at first bite!!  Hee!Hee!  So much so, that I can now eat cherry tomatoes like candy.  Numanum!! That's why I always wanted to scrap a picture of my Maman's tomatoes. And I knew that the Basic Grey Curio collection was going to be perfect for it (my sister did a layout of our mother's tomatoes last year with this collection)!! This layout was also the first of my creations using Ranger's Claudine Hellmuth Studio Gesso!! Well, talk about a love affair!!  Hee!Hee! I also included some Magenta, October Afternoon and Basic Grey alphas, as well as some trim.  Don't you just love that border I made using one of EK Success' border punches? And yes, I hand-stitched the border all around the page (after having poked the holes using a Crafter's Workshop template).

Oh! And if you want some great inspiration, just click on the link below to see all the great, unique ways to interpret this sketch.  Amazing!!  Awesome inspiration, for SURE!!
